The Coldfall Sanction
The Rural Gendarmerie of Romania. This mounted police is under the control of the military, but has civil jurisdiction in the rural areas of the country. They date back to 1850 in Moldavia where they were created to watch over public safety and maintain order and law enforcement. The Gendarmerie was reorganized in 1907 after perceived failings in quickly putting down the peasants revolt in northern Moldavia. In times of war, the Gendarmerie assumes the role of military police, watching over the supply lines and keeping order among the troops.
