Sarleon Armored Longbowman (profile)

Marksmen of the Sarleon kingdom, they use the feared and deadly longbow. Undisputed in range and accuracy, these archers are able to fire arrows at a further range than even the war bow. While they have all been trained with the use of swords, some of them have given up the use of shields for an extra quiver of arrows, which can be essential in sieges. While they may have one of the slower rate of fire among the Pendorian archers, they can fire accurately and much further.

Excellent both on the field and in sieges, they excel at hitting the enemy at a very long range. A slower rate of fire allows them to be able to conserve arrows. Use them in conjunction with archers with a faster volley of fire and almost no one will be able to reach the archer line unscathed.

They are equipped with Heraldic Sarleon Platemail, a Flat Topped Helmet, and Mail Boots. They wield a Long Bow with Barbed Arrows and/or Arrows, as well as a Sarleon Knight Longsword with a Kite Shield.

This troop is upgraded from Sarleon Longbowman for 80 d and upgrades no more.

As of 3.9, these can be prmoted to the Larian Sentinels.
