Isabeau's Journal

 November, 12 2005

OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.

There are five companies of Swan Knights, with 100 in each company. So there are five company commanders. In Visions, Boromir's vision shows Imrahil ordering three to follow him on the left flank and two to go with Hurin's horse on the right. There are also three main commanding offices-the Horsemaster, who oversees the maintenance and selection of the horses, the Armsmaster who oversee the maintenance and selection of the esquires and the Commander who is over all. Usually they are held by three different people, but Andrahar currently holds the Commandership as well as being Armsmaster. Peloren is the Horsemaster. More than that I'm still working out. I think Esteven is one of Peloren's lieutenants, while Liahan is Andrahar's, but I've not decided how many lieutenants there are, or if the company commanders have lieutenants too.

As for Noble Jewel, that was only one company with the new esquires in tow. So yes, it was a big inn, but not quite that big.
