Though known for its mercenaries, Bissel's four famed armies, the Border Companies, suffered defeat and subsequent disbanding during a recent occupation of the country by Ket forces. Efforts to reorganize and reform the Border Companies continue, but the bands are not yet at their former strength. Scouts, especially trained rangers, can find work in the north and west of Bissel.

In addition to the Border Companies, Bissel's massive Castle Oversight (at Pellak), remains the headquarters for the country's branch of the Knights of the Watch. While not overly concerned with local politics, the Knights are aware of disputes among Bissel's allies over Bissel's allegiances.
