The Quicksilver Company

The Quicksilver Company is a company of horsemen affiliated with the Book and Blade, and led by Herrun Bolderheft’s cohort, Sir Ian. The company will use Overwatch Keep as a base of operations, and respond quickly to appeals for help that the Book and Blade receive but are not in a position to answer.


The company is currently composed of 91 men, not counting Sir Ian. The men are from a wide assortment of Western Faerunian heritages.

The Quicksilver Company is led and mustered by Sir Ian, followed by Lieutenant Pollus, who acts as his second in command. The rest of the company is comprised of ten smaller units, which are made up of six men each. Each unit has an officer who issues commands on the battlefield to the other five riders in his unit.

Each rider is issued gear consisting of a lance, a longsword, a light crossbow, a heavy wooden shield, scale mail, and an individual light warhorse that he is expected to care for with great diligence. A rider, however, can choose to use his own preferred sidearm instead of the longsword if he wishes. Each unit is also issued a light pack horse which carries the unit’s three tents, trail rations, and other gear.

Lieutenant Pollus and each officer carry a magical “Giant’s Bane” lance instead of a regular one.
