About

Born into war, the edjet are proud of their scars, their cracked scales, their trophies taken from the hairy races, and the plunder they have rendered to the great dragon lords. They are a proud few and with good reason.

Troops of Dragon Armies. The classic edjet are heavy troops of dragonborn devoted to one or another of the elemental gods and commanded by paladins or priests. Their general is typically a lesser dragon or major drake, and their units include any number of holy warriors and elementalists, as well as heavily armored lizard-riders, and even oliphaunt-riding artillerists.

Their rank and file consist of halberdiers, feared as much for their prowess as for their ability to breathe gouts of flame into their enemy’s front line.

Dragons Above All. The edjet are raised from birth to believe in the superiority of the scaled folk over all others, and their confidence shows on the battlefield. Their charges are swift and crushing, and they fight with a zeal rarely seen elsewhere.

The edjet are believers, and this gives them courage to stand tall against giants, magic, or even gods.
