The Fireborn (Dragon Princes)The mighty deeds of the Fireborn are spoken of in hushed tones by all the princes of Caledor.
Long ago, Ulthuan was dominated by the valorous deeds and wise rule of Caledor's Dragon Princes. Now, the royal bloodline has faded, and the power of Dragons has diminished, but Caledor's pride still shines bright. Where they once rode Dragons, today they ride to war upon swift horses. Both mount and rider wear crested ithilmar armour whose style echoes that of the Dragons riders of old. This Dragon armour is forged in the heart of Vaul's Anvil, where ancient enchantments are bound into the cooling ithilmar, ensuring that no lesser flame than the fires of Vaul can offer harm to the armour or its wearer.

Strengths & Weaknesses
- Dragon Armour
Fire attacks cannot harm the wearer of this enchanted, volcano-forged armour.
- Armoured & Shielded
Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.
- Martial Mastery
A rigorous selection process and relentless training have turned this unit into the perfect fighting machine. This effect is lost, however, if the unit is badly damaged.
