They use a potent strategic combination of archers and spearmen. The spearmen wield long pikes, wear light armor, and carry short swords at their sides. They march as one unit and are trained to quickly fall into offensive and defensive formations. Each spear unit is led by a mounted knight-captain. The archers wield fine longbows, wear light armor, and carry various other weapons, and accompany each unit of spearmen. One of the strategies they use against the Qadiran horse and camel charges, is for the spearmen to form a protective bulwark around the archers, who in turn fire out hails of arrows from inside the living fortification.
Taldan Phalanx members also patrol and guard caravans passing through the Blackwood Swamp to and from the important port city of Cassomir, protecting them against bandits, and other dangers that inhabit that dangerous marshland.
