Given the tensions between the val'Virdan and val'Emman would it make more sense to have a val'Emman in a Nierite legion or in a different legion?

As a related question, are there any val'Emman controlled Nierite legions?

With a sweep of his hat,

Paul

A different legion or he/she might find themselves a casualty of friendly fire.

There are none.

The val'Emman only emerged as a unique family about 50 years ago. Not enough time to get the influence, money and prestige necessary to found a legion.

I may be remembering this wrong, but I thought that a Coryani legion standard was recovered for an old val'Emman legion in the last campaign...the Legion of the Black Sun perhaps?

Thanks Henry. It's what I expected and nice to have the confirmation.

I swear there was at least one val'Emman Legion that took part in the Battle of Grand Coryan, but now I cannot find the document which lists who was on what side. . .

According to the adventure LA-SP4-07 there is the Legion of Searing Revenge (Nier-Emman).

Looking back on my notes the following Legions were listed at one time as val'Emman:

The Legion of Searing Revenge
The Legion of the Pride of Chendo
(Reference: LA_Talk list post #: 43560)

Given the general bad blood between the val'Virdans and the val'Emman it sounds like the val'Virdans have reclaimed these two legions or they were effectively destroyed in the Battle of Grand Coryan.

The two Beltinian legions I have notes for are the Legion of the Sacred Trust and the Legion of the Blessed Spirit. Neither sound very val'Emman-like. I have the following legions without notes on a patron deity, one of which may work:

Legio Anguis Reptatus - may be Cadic given the Occisor base class in the 3.5 Psionics Unbound book
Legio Comae Triumphus ab Sol Invictus
Legion of Broken Shadows
Legion of Burnished Steel
Legion of Dark Majesty
Legion of Deliverance
Legion of Honorable Accord
Legion of Indomitable Truth
Legion of Iron Shadow
Legion of Mighty Toneth
Legion of Radiant Glory - probably Illirite
Legion of the Crusading Light
Legion of the Stalking Shadow

Happy to get notes on any of the legions mentioned above.

With a sweep of his hat,

Paul

Those are val'Emman legions, but both were destroyed in the final days of the First Imperium.

If they were listed at the Battle of Grand Coryan, then that was an error.

Legio Anguis Reptatus - Cadician in flavour, if not actual religion
Legio Comae Triumphus ab Sol Invictus - Illiirite
Legion of Broken Shadows - Cadic?
Legion of Burnished Steel
Legion of Dark Majesty - IIRC the 'ownership' of this legion has been fought between the Borda, Mehan, and Mordane
Legion of Deliverance - Has fought Voei
Legion of Honorable Accord - First City Legion
Legion of Indomitable Truth - Illirite I believe
Legion of Iron Shadow - Sounds cadician
Legion of Mighty Toneth - Sounds Cadician
Legion of Radiant Glory - probably Illirite
Legion of the Crusading Light - Light usually = Illiir
Legion of the Stalking Shadow - Pretty darn Cadician to me

Wow, there are a lot of Cadic and Illiir legions :P

Just a thought, but would this also mean that Nova Cormata is more of a val'Virdan homeland rather than a Nierite one? Would there be continued friction between the two families there, or are they mixed at all?

I did start a backstory for the Legion if Radiant Glory last campaign.

Then Henry screwed me by banishing Calmemnon out of the Empire with them. Mother is still pissed at that (but Larisaa really is a bitch about decisions affecting fate.)
