The basic cavalry of Pendor. These Pendor swordsmen have decided to support the Pendor Knights as medium cavalry. They carry decent armor for their rank and carry swords, a lance, and a heater shield. Their mounts are saddle horses, which enables them to move more quickly on the battlefield than their junior footmen. While these units have height advantage over infantry or archers lower than their rank, they do not possess the offensive or defensive skills of heavy cavalry. So if they face heavily armored Squires, Knights, or Heavy Infantry, they should be supported with stronger units in battle. The Pendor Mtd. Man-at-Arms is a greatly improved version of the Pendor Cavalry in equipment and stats, but lacks a shield to protect from projectiles.
