I said it's the one of the four legions the empire has left, not that it's the fourth legion.
You're more than welcome Atvel, things such as this should be looked into with most care, I'm glad to help in any way I can whenever I can.
Nowhere, which is exactly why I posted this thread.
But we can get a rough assumption of how many Legions exist. Assuming there were a total of 18 at the start of the GW, and 3 entire Legions died, leaves us with 15. Of those 15, half were unfit for duty, leaving us with 7,5. The Legion in Skyrim is entirely locally recruited, meaning a total of 8,5 Legions exist.
Well, that's if we assume there are a total of 18. There is an 18th recorded Legion, so my bet is that there were a total of 18 Legions.
I'm doubting that there's only four Legions left. They definitely have at least 9 or 10.
Or even twelve, assuming that their legions are the size of RL Marian/Augustan legions (5,400 men on average).
Heck, even during the Fourth Century A.D, when Rome was on a severe decline, the empire mananged to field around 350,000 soldiers divided into border (limitanei) and mobile (comitatenses) legions. (Granted, a huge chunk of those were foedarati/mercenaries who's primary loyalty was to their coin purse, and another chunk of them were poorly trained and led)
Yeah, I did the maths a few comments ago, not 4, according to what we know it should be either 7,5 or 8,5.
What do you think?
