“A mercenary sells a sword without honor. The Warsworn sells honor, armed for battle.”
The Warsworn is an organization dedicated to war. It was originally known as the Firstsworn and founded by Eamonn to fight the threat of the Niskaru. Once their original goal was completed, the organization broke down sometime afterwards and reformed into what would become the current model of the Warsworn.
Since the time of Ballegar, the Warsworn has lost much of the ancient knowledge and many artifacts it had acquired while fighting the war against the Niskaru. They are now an organization of mercenaries who are well known across The Faelands as being some of the strongest and toughest warriors.
They are currently led by the Ancient of War, Tine Delfric, a seasoned and well respected member. The Warsworn fight for the highest bidder, but they do so with a sense of honor and integrity that other mercenary groups in the world of Amalur appear to lack. Their credo: “A mercenary sells a sword without honor. The Warsworn sells honor, armed for battle.”
Currently the Warsworn are fighting with the Alfar Military against the Tuatha Deohn while getting paid to do it. Though they suffer from a high casualty rate, many Warsworn dream of going to the fronts at Mel Senshir and eagerly volunteer to be sent over. Tine Delfric himself mentions this fact and worries about the future of the organization while the war continues, as their personnel are stretched thin between their three keeps, employers seeking well-seasoned soldiers, and their forces based in Mel Senshir.
They have three keeps that they operate:
- Their main headquarters is Shieldring Keep in Dalentarth as Tine Delfric (the leader of the Warsworn) resides there.
- Helmgard Keep located in Tala-Rane, this keep is responsible for watching over the Warsworn Vault, protecting the few artifacts they still had after the fall of the Firstsworn. Grian Shane is in charge of this keep.
- Ironfast Keep located in Menetyre, this keep is responsible for keeping an eye and if need be, controlling the Jottun population. Oda Celfred leads this keep.
