Military Strength: House Chandus fields a combined arms regiment, a Caltu Highland infantry regiment (through its highland vassals) and a strong, well organised militia corps called the Yeomanry. The House's focus is on fast moving but well armoured shock infantry, but the banner fields troops across most disciplines.
Goods: Agriculture, Mining and Trade (especially Circester wine and woven wool fabrics).
Wealth:

Moderate. Significant amounts of money enter the Chandus treasury due do their abundant mining interests, agricultural wealth and trade originating in Repton March.

The House was quite wealthy until the Vir Sidus Empire cut trade through their major pass two decades ago, but over the past decade it has diversified and strengthened the fundamentals of its economy significantly. However, military expenditures soak up a significant portion of their income.

House Relations

reine Reine : House Reine shares our blood, our culture, and unity of purpose with us. Some of their methods may be distasteful, sometimes even sinful, but they always acted as strong, just masters to us. Now that we are a county of our own, we will continue to be loyal, devoted friends of them. May the One let our presence be a moderating force in their actions and, we hope, may we convince them to soften some of their methods so that none of their vassals ever have reason for reproach.
