The Regalian Sellswords are the collective individual and organised mercenaries that operate legally within the Regalian Empire. They act as mercenaries, privateers, enforcers, house guards, bouncers, bodyguards, trainers, and everything in between. If approved by the Mercenary Commander, these sellswords are granted a variety of rights and may receive work from any willing contractors in the Empire. Despite this, mercenaries do have limitations placed upon them in their work. Regalian Sellswords may not be an active member of another Military Order (Regalian Guard, O.A.R.S., etc) The exception is the Black Hand and non-active Viridian Knights. Regalian Sellswords may not hold an active office in the Curia Militum. All other Government Positions are technically allowed, but ill-advised and will be under intense scrutiny. Regalian Sellswords can be of any race, social class, gender, or Imperial approved faith. Regalian Sellswords must be of Fighter Rank or higher in a known Military School, or else they must pass a military exam to be considered. Regalian Sellswords must be at least 20 years of age.

All sellswords operating outside the Regalian Sellsword Companies, within the Regalian Empire, are not acting within the law and subject to arrest and taxation. Regalian Sellswords must always act in the utmost loyalty to the Emperor. It is understood that the Regalian Empire will pay back any debt that is made through acts of loyalty. Regalian Sellswords must act in accordance to all Regalian Laws that do not directly impact their duties. The guilt of law-breakers is left to the Mercenary Commander. Regalian Sellswords must obey orders from, in order of primary loyalty: the Emperor, the Mercenary Commander, and the Proconsul.
