A large military force that was sent over the Sunrise ocean following the War of Scales. Its objective was to reclaim territories the Duchies had pacified in the Frontier before the outbreak of the War of Scales. Although it met with initial success, much of it was forced to withdraw back to the Duchies after the untimely death of Duke Armand of Florent put the succession into question. Few Legionnaires were left behind to maintain their position. The large civilian population that had grown around the reconquest legion taxed the remaining Legionnaires’ ability to defend them, and they quickly started to fall to hunger, illness, and the various inhabitants of the Frontier. Because of the difficulty in crossing the Sunrise ocean, little contact was made with the Frontier during the Four Years Turbulence. With the abatement of tensions in the Duchies after the Turbulence passed, a second Reconquest legion was once again dispatched to the Frontier to continue the task of the first. However, when it arrived, the legion’s leadership discovered that most of the remnants of the first legion had deserted and joined the Independent Frontier Alliance.
