Regular soldiers of the Guard were outfitted in blue oiled plate mail armor emblazoned with the coat of arms of Tantras: three silver stars over a silver breaking wave on a field of royal blue, called the "blue and silver". They carried spears, short swords, and daggers. Some, crossbowmen, could carry light crossbows.
- ↑ It is not clear what name to give a member of the Guard of this level. The term "man-at-arms" has been adopted based on the description in the Tantras adventure module. The term "warrior" is similarly possible from both the module and the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (2nd edition).
