The Raider is the shield-carrying human starting melee unit. He can be recruited from the Mead House. Since he is a starting unit, his stats are already at their max when he is recruited.

Passive Ability: Shield Wall[edit | edit source]

By standing next to an ally, the raider creates a Shield Wall, raising the armor of both himself and his ally by 1. This bonus remains until the Raider is no longer adjacent to the ally.

When multiple Raiders stand next to each other this effect is magnified as they grant each other their own bonus. Four Raiders standing in a square formation will each gain an additional 4 armor.

Promotions[edit | edit source]

After achieving 5 total kills, the Raider is eligible for promotion to one of the following classes:

Backbiter Raidmaster Thrasher
Backbiter
Raidmaster

Lore[edit | edit source]

Stop crying. You'll have to make the decision soon, boy. Become a farmer or fisher; hard tedious labor for certain, but you'll never go hungry. Become a trader, maybe live in wealth when you've mastered the art of lying. Become a builder or a smith, and make the things that will bring others glory. Or carry this axe in your hand, and this shield in the other, and take what those lesser men have made for you." -A father to his son
