I know that in the Primer and in previous books, there are lists of active Legions. Is there any list that includes the origin, patron deity, or focus of the legion? For example, Lex Talionis is known to work with the inquisition, but are the other legions known for a specific focus?

(I don't have all the published books, so if this is found in one of them, the book title would be a great start for me).

Greetings,

The Legion of the Watchful Hunter is an active Cadican legion supported by Plexus. Focus is scout / skirmish / special forces type stuff. They're referenced in at least a couple of the mods. If you have more questions about them, let me know. As for others, I can look later for the list from the ARG book when I get home if someone hasn't already beaten me to it.

Wrong way around. Calcestus was assigned the Legion of Radiant Glory. Calmemnon was assigned the Legion of Heaven's Blade. ARG.pg35.Column 2

... and they're back... ... ... ...

Legion of Dark Majesty - (Neroth/Sarish)

Legion of Mighty Toneth
Legion of Searing Light - (Illiir)
Legion of Shining Glory

Legion of Sweet Sorrow - (Larissa) - previously commanded by Emperor Scipio Aemilianus val'Assante

Legion of the Shining Pillar - (Hurrian) - previously garrisoned at Sicarus, replaced by the Legion of Avenging Thunder, may be inactive
Legion of the Singers of Sweet Savona - (primarily Larissa, but also Cadic)
Legion of the Storm Lord - (Hurrian)
Legion of the Sundering Rays - (Illiir)
Legion of the Triumphant Rays of the Invincible Sun - (Legio Comae Triumphus ab Sol Invictus, presumably Illiir)
Legion of the Unrepentant Heart
Legion of the Vindictive Sea - (Yarris)
Legion of the Watchful Hunter (Cadic) - stationed in Eppion, League of Princes.

Not PC Appropriate
Legion of Absolute Retribution - (Nier, val'Emman) - Destroyed during final days of First Imperium, no currently active Emman legions, Henry quote
Legion of Grim Lamentation - (Anshar) - protectors of Ansharan Gates, operates independently of the Empire, Henry quote
Legion of Radiant Glory - (Illiir) - destroyed in Myrantian rebellion, standard later recovered, unstated if since refounded, noted as unavailable in Codex Arcanis, previously commanded by Emperor Calcestus val'Assante
Legion of Searing Revenge - (Nier, val'Emman) - Destroyed during final days of First Imperium, no currently active Emman legions, Henry quote
Legion of Searing Purity - (Nier) - noted as unavailable in Codex Arcanis
Legion of Swift Vengence - destroyed in attack on Seremas
Legion of the Black Sun (Legio Sol Negris) - ancient undead legion
Legion of the Cleansing Flame - (Nier) - disbanded after allegedly attempting to assassinate a Coryani Emperor, responsible for the marginalization of Nier's worship in the Mother Church
Legion of the Crimson Moon - (Cadic) - noted as unavailable in Codex Arcanis, wiped out in First Khitani-Coryani War
Legion of the Doom of Chendo - (Nier, val'Emman) - Ghosts protecting Enpebyn, no currently active Emman legions, Henry quote
Legion of the Pride of Chendo - (Nier, val'Emman) - Destroyed during final days of First Imperium, no currently active Emman legions, Henry quote
Legion of the Rising Phoenix - changed to Knightly Order of the Phoenix after the Milandesian Succession
Legion of Unsettled Quietus - (Neroth) - destroyed during Battle of Enpebyn
Legion of Unyielding Courage - noted as unavailable in Codex Arcanis
Legion of Vigilance - personal guard of the Emperor



Clarifying the current status of the Legion of Radiant Glory and Legion of the Shining Pillar would be great. Also, does anyone else remember the Legion of Dark Majesty being Sarishian? Have any legions been founded/refounded in the last 40 years and become available again?

Legion of the Sundering Rays (Also known as the 12th) was the legion I used for In Plain Sight

Always saw it as a minor, but active Illirite legion

Legion of Dark Majesty was Sarishian in the early days of the Coryani Empire but supposedly is not anymore. (there was an early Arcanis module with pregen PCs in the Legion of Vigilance that included Sarenta val'Mehan, originally from the Legion of Dark Majesty. That module was set in the past during a rebellion in Abessiois & those PCs stopped an assassination attempt on the Emperor in IC 300ish by the Patriarch).

I obliquely referenced the Legion when writing the old campaign module An Evening of Wealth and Taste.

In some conversation I had with Henry he stated that the Legion was no longer Sarishian in modern times. I don't have notes. But iirc the legion is now primarily Nerothian.

Yes that must be where I am remembering that from.

Anyone remember any other Sarishian legions? What legion did General Dorjan val'Mehan command?
