The Forsite Irregulars
Ernest Padraig is Lord of Winterhaven
Ernest Padraig is Lord of Winterhaven, residing in his family’s ancestral manor and enjoying the benefits of wealth and privilege in the tiny village. He has little real power despite his hereditary title.
Padraig commands the Winterhaven Regulars, a core group of ten soldiers who perform guard and police functions in and around the walled portion of the village. The Regulars patrol in pairs. To augment this force, Padraig can muster a group of about fifty civilians, given a day’s notice. However, he can only do this if the village itself is threatened—the villagers have no desire to patrol the road beyond the farms.
Lately, he’s been concerned about the growing Orc raids near Gardmore Abbey.
