The Lances of Leilon was a group of soldiers that defended the town of Leilon.[1][2]


This force of about 200 men was always on patrol trying to minimize orcs and goblins in the area.[1][2]


The Lances of Leilon were skilled at firing crossbows from horseback. While clad in chain mail, each lancer carried a shield. In battle, they fought with lances, light crossbows, swords, axes, and daggers.[1][2]
