Independent Frontier Alliance
A faction of the remnants of the original settlers that accompanied the first Reconquest Legion that were left behind during the Turbulence. This faction claims that when the Duchies abandoned them, they became an independent state and the few-remaining Reconquest Legionarres became the Independent Frontier Legion. They view the return of the second Reconquest Legion as an affront to their soveriegnity and are treating it like an invasion. To bolster their forces, they have accepted criminals, outcasts, and pirates into their ranks- granting amnesty and putting them through accelerated Legion training in return for service- to form the Skull Brigade in order to combat the second Reconquest Legion.
