Palanthas - With the arrival of the 17th century this week of the 3rd cohort the mighty 4th legion is assembled.

"There isn't a man in the legion today that was present when the legion was assembled in one place at one time" said legion Sir Alric Uth Gartin Knight of the Crown and Commander of the 17th century 4. The 17th Century was stationed at Schallsea until recently and was greeted by the commanders of the other 12th 13th 14th 15th and 16th centuries which make up the 3rd cohort commanded by Lady Cassandra Blacktree Knight of the Sword.

Our great Emperor Markham was on hand also to congratulate the Knight Commanders at a feast held in there honor but no sooner was the meal finished than the knights returned to their troops who are currently in a tent city out side the city.

Emperor Markham was quoted to say "I am proud to eat with those who serve there empire best".

In the next few day the assembled troops will be marching south to re-unite with the 1st Cohort and the 2nd Cohort which has been acting as a reserve force for the 5th legion in Lemish. Though it is unconfirmed what the destination of the full strength 4th legion will be.

Brian Grendal a Lancer of the 12th century said "no one but the big wigs know where we are marching but if the mighty 4th marches Solamnia will be in good hands"

The 3rd Cohort of 4th legion is a mixture of Cavalry and light infantry numbering over 400 men lead by some of our best Solamnic Knights while the exact details of the legions composition is restricted information the Herald can say for sure that when the entire 4th legion known as the `Mighty 4th' is assembled it will rival the size of the other legions currently deployed this also means that now the legions strength will be the largest mobilization of Solamnic troops since the rise of Emperor Markham.
