–The Hobbit, An Unexpected Party
As with all Dalish units, these soldiers only spawn on grass blocks, at any time of day. In rare cases, these soldiers can spawn mounted on a horse.
Dalish Soldiers will ignore any player or NPC with friendly alignment to Dale, but will walk towards any enemy of Dale and start swinging their weapons at them. They also carry a shield, though this is just for cosmetics, and gives them no combat bonuses whatsoever. Mounted variants of Dalish soldiers will move much faster than normal, but their AI is otherwise the same.
You can hire a Dalish Soldier for 30-60 Silver Coins and 150 alignment to Dale. A mounted variant costs 50-100 coins and 250 alignment. As per usual, the price decreases as alignment increases and halves if the player pledges to Dale.

- Welcome to the land of Dale, Person!
- We must remain vigilant.
- I hear worrisome reports of skirmishes on our eastern borders.
- Rumours say that Men of the East have been crossing over the Redwater. I must hope they are but rumours.
- We cannot hold off the barbarians in the East forever, Person. If they should mount an attack... I fear for us all.

- Can we stop for some ale?
- I will do as you command.
- Nothing shall stand against us!

- As you command.
