Amorphous
Monsters with an amorphous form, whether they are vaporous or fluid--making them difficult opponents. They are nearly impossible to defeat without the use of magic or fire.
 2    Ancients 
Ancients
Ancient races of monsters that are seldom encountered. Being extremely powerful, one must simply curse their luck when one of these races are encountered. They will only be seen in large numbers unless prompted by some exceptional cause, and in such cases they can only be countered by very powerful magic or by a powerful cavalry charge.
 3    Aquatic 
Aquatic
Monsters that dwell in water that show great power in their native environment. Even outside water, they are effective against many units. They are very difficult to command, requiring high strength to control.
 4    Arcanist 
Arcanist
Arcanists are a special breed of wizards specializing in all matters occult and forbidden. In many ways, they combine the fields of necromancy and summoning, for their powers draw from the darker powers. Considered to be the bards of the macabre, they know the secrets that man dreads to hear spoken. Arcanists are very few in number, and rarely do they decide to lead other magicians in war. However, when they do, they are able to magnify their power to awesome proportions.
 5    Archers

Soldiers that use bows and arrows to attack enemies from a distance. They are effective against magicians and flying enemies. They are weak against infantry and other melee-attack regiments. They function best when led by those with high SKL.
 6    Armored Cavalry 
Armored Cavalry
Cavalry protected by thick armor and barding. This unit is nearly unstoppable due to their armor and speed. Most units have difficulty attacking them with the esception of magic oriented units. However, even magicians will suffer heavy casualties from an armored cavalry charge.
 7    Ashigaru 
Ashigaru
Footsoldiers typically armed with polearms who comprise the bulk of troops within the Shogunate of Katana. They are armored and have great mobility, making them equally effective against cavalry and archers. They are, however, relatively defenseless against magic of any kind.
 8    Bandits 
Bandits
Outlaws typically living in rough terrain who sometimes raid local villages for sustenance. They are often poorly equipped, and function much like weaker versions of infantry. Due to their nature, they fight better in mountains, forests, and badlands.
 9    Bank 
Bank
Each nation has one bank. A bank can not participate in battles, but is a repository for that nation's income; thus, they are still very important.
 10    Beastmaster 
Beastmaster
This regiment can be used to summon random animals to fight against an enemy. When used as a battle unit, it is very effective against mounted and hand-to-hand units, but can be destroyed easily by those with the ability to attack from afar. Best led by those who are wise and magically gifted.
 11    Beasts 
Beasts
Beasts in the wilderness or those brought in from other worlds through magic. At times they are commanded by non-beasts, but most of the time they have a pack leader that functions much like a regiment leader. They display common beast-like tendencies, and most conventional military forces shouldn't have much trouble unless faced with vast numbers of them. They thrive on rough terrain, and are generally afraid of water.
 12    Berserkers 
Berserkers
Fierce warriors who have a disregard for their own life. These fighters are deadly in the battlefield; even though their lack of armor makes them easy targets, they will still take many with them into their next life.
 13    Black Sun 
Black Sun
For many generations the small Black Sun tribe have been feared for their skill in combat. As harsh and deadly as their desert homelands they are experts in both melee and guerrilla warfare, able to mix the two combat types flawlessly. The recent arrival of the New Priest-King has seen this normally independent tribe ally themselves with the Theocracy and after negotiations are now counted as the most deadly troops in the Priest-Kings army. Each warrior has a holy blessing cast upon their weapons and is oath sworn to fight the enemies of Nagarea. Despite this oath their well deserved reputation can hinder their ability to make the most of all advantages.
 14    Bladesinger 
Bladesinger
A regiment of swordsmen led by a swordmistress who has perfected the art of swordsmanship. Led by their powerful leader, the trrops are often inspired to acts of brazen bravery.

 15    Bujutsu Teacher 
Bujutsu Teacher
Various teachers and trainers in the martial arts that have given up their fighting ways in order to train a new generation. Or due to bone-idleness. When used a support unit, provided the unit they're attached to survives, they will provide an extra +50 regiment experience to the unit and an extra +25 to all allied units that see battle in the same turn.
 16    Bunjibuunj 
Bunjibuunj
A mysterious cavalry regiment composed of vicious mounted nay-kobolds equipped with hatchets and battle axes. Wherever they pass a trail of death, destruction, and entrails is all that remains. Although they are nay-kobolds, nobody knows if they actually are from Nay, and some say they are demons taking a less threatening form. Despite being a powerful force, they have a tendency of being distracted by anything that they find interesting--and have been known to suddenly abandon battles on a whim.
 17    Catapult 
Catapult
A siege engine that can hurl large objects at defensive structures and render them ineffective. When used with another battle regiment, a catapult can nullify an enemy's fortification bonus.

 18    Cavalry 
Cavalry
Armored soldiers mounted on horses that charge into enemies. They tend to be defenseless against magicians due to horses getting frightened by the magic, but they are powerful against footsoldiers. They become a deadly force on plains, but are less effective on mountainous, desert, and badland terrains. They are most effective when led by those who have high SPD.
 19    Cavemen 
Cavemen
Humans who live at a lower cultural level than most others, cavemen lack education, and are thus very weak as a combat force. When a region's citizens become too uneducated and uncultured, there is a chance that some of the soldiers defending such a region will be replaced by cavemen.
 20    Civilian 
Civilian
Normal people who typically have nothing to do with battles. In rare occasions when they are forced to fight, they end up being very weak units that are easily defeated by all other types of units. It's impossible to command civilians because they have no military training.
 21    Clairvoyant Minds 
Clairvoyant Minds
Fortunate Bugganes that was lucky enough to be born with runes. As they're not as strong as the Hive Soldiers, they're forced to wear heavy armor which slows them down making them weak against the fast, but allows them to battle with forces up close or far off.
 22    Clerics 
Clerics
Dedicated to the holy path, clerics are professionals when it comes to dealing with magical creatures, particularly the undead. However, they tend to be weak against physical attacks. They are best when led by those who understand how to defend oneself from magic.
 23    Critters

Crystal Cavalry
Knights mounted on pegasi charged with the defense of the Circle Rune. Trained in the One Temple of Crystal Valley and dressed in the classic blue of the Circle Rune and armed with large and powerful halberds, these fierce soldiers ride white horses into battle who according to myth, grant them increased magic resistance. In battle, these units will charge into opponents switfly enough to disrupt magic chanting and fell most physical foes, but will be victimized by projectile weapons.
 26    Darkmaster 
Darkmaster
Dolvanian Sentinels who have proven themselves by maintaining their sanity after witnessing the "primoridal darkness." Having achieved oneness with nature, their existence is no longer bound by their body, although this fact is impossible to see or understand by those who are not equally "awakened." In battle they become immaterial as ghosts, striking with ethereal weaponry that strike directly at the soul of the living, and sever the dark cords of undead-kind. Although they are powerful in many ways, they have a weakness against clerics and those of other faiths due to the strength of their piety negating the power of the "primordial darkness."
 27    Deceased 
Deceased
A regiment that no longer exists because the leader has passed away. A dead person obviously can't fight, so this regiment has no combat purpose whatsoever.
 28    Disciples of Death

Soldiers equipped with spears that spew fire, turning them into a deadly force against enemies who have no means of long-range attacks.

Horses also fear griffons, giving them an advantage against them in battle.

Consequently, they are able to deliver powerful volleys to cut down enemy forces regardless of their defensive prowess as a support unit or as a combat regiment on its own.
