Steelcrosses of the Underdark
The Order of Steel Crosses is the Delvarin solution to archers. Using special Delvarin crossbows combined with stealth and fast retreat methods in the dark passages of the Delvarin homelands proved to be more successful than standard archer tactics. The Steelcrosses are indeed lethal and work with a coordination that is unmatched in warrior groups. This unity seems to be accomplished through a linking of the orders minds, allowing them to communicate much more effectively then conventional military units. While masters of underground combat, the Steelcrosses are not to be underestimated upon the surface world, where greater open space makes their attack and fade tactics even more effective. To assist such tactics the Steelcrosses are also trained to a lesser extent in mounted archery.
