So, what are the rough military strengths and compositions of the Tyr region? Let’s start with Dregoth in New Guistenal:
He has roughly 4,000 Dray that function as a militia. These are stronger than core race equivalents, say +1 in 3e terms, well trained and equipped with good morale. They hover around level 5 or 6. Morale is high. Perhaps 5/600 of these can be considered professional soldiers at level 8.
There are also around 100 Kalin Riders, elite light cavalry with levels in Templar, levels 10 to 12. Supported by defilers and psionicists of similar level.
There are around 350 other Templars around level 8.
There are around about 80 to 100 Dray agents and infiltrators scattered around the region with levels of rogue and bard between levels 8 and 12. They may have gained some cultists (who weren’t sacrificed Raamites).
Let’s posit some constructs, say 300 or so golems. Sand and granite. Bone and flesh golems can be included with the undead. More on these later.
Speaking of which there are 300 first generation Dray zombies and skeletons with perhaps twice that second generation Dray, a good portion of which could be living zombies. Another 300 mul zombies are added to this mix. There’s a clan of rlven zombies, the Fire Bow of the Silt Stalkers tribe, maybe 800 to a 1,000. To add to this zombie horde (together with anyone else that can be sacrificed in the interim) there should be some officers, higher tiered undead wraiths, ghosts or ghouls. An obvious move is to supplement these with undead from nearby Bodach, adding salt zombies, controlled bugdead and mummified undead. Hard to pin the numbers for this, but lets say 1,500 all in.
Of those constructs earlier, Dregoth had started to extract the souls of his loyal minions from the Caller in the Darkness into obsidian orbs. Though in CbtSS he had only extracted one and had only a handful orbs ready to go, it’s not unfeasible that he’s extracted the majority of the rest (incidentally weakening the Calller), these 300 warriors could pilot the constructs whilst he had access to a great many more ordinary subjects trapped in the Caller.
Which leaves the fiendish legion. Let’s say a 1,000 lemures with similar numbers of abishai (fitting his racist profile) spilt between colours. Perhaps 100 imps, 600 spined devils, 400 bearded devils, 300 barbed devils, 200 chain devils and 200 bone devils. Led by a score of ice devils. Pretty much invented these figures but they seem to be about what he could raise given access to the planes with uis mirror and time.
These all together should make Dregoth a serious threat to the region, even if its armies combined against him. Not counting Dregoth and his senior officers themselves…
Thoughts? Let’s hash this out then see what some of the other militaries could bring to bear.
