It takes a lot to be a military superpower. The city-state of Myork does it through their peculiar method of conscription, where the land owners provide the army with vators.
But these are just men-at-arms, right? Boring, NPC fodder that adventurers wade through when necessary and ignore when they can. No one cares about the soldiers of the various armies - bring on the dragons! But it is important to think about the soldiers, what they’re doing, how they live. They are the closest thing to adventurers that aren’t adventurers, but they so often get ignored and forgotten. It really is easy to figure them out, and figuring them out will energize your fantasy world and campaigns.
