Joining the MILICIA
Some join the MILICIA for the chance to defend their homes and families. The MILICIA is a chance to see the world and learn more about it while serving their nation.
Others join the MILICIA for less noble reasons. Many MILICIA officers started their career in the SRA, but were caught in some shameful behavior or were merely unlucky in the constant high-stakes politics of that force. THey join the MILICIA for a chance to regain their honor. For redemption.
Others are outright criminals, given to the MILICIA as a last chance to salvage their lives. These convict forces are formed into poorly-equipped units and sent into the dangerous missions. Absolution is awarded at a high cost.
The MILICIA is a force drawn from all four of the Southern leagues. While often appearing underfunded as compared to the elite Southern Republic Army, it is tasked with patrolling massive borders as well as maintaining the peace in the less civilized regions oft he Southern leagues.
MILICIA forces are sometimes fielded with Political Officers much like their SRA counterparts. They are better known for their use of Conscript Cadres that use lightly aremd Gears and are intended to soften up the opposition with overwhelming numbers. Some of these cadres are merely new recruits given minimal training and outdated gear, btu some are actual convicts offered the opportunity to fight for the Allied Southern Terriories in return for reduced prison terms.
