Trope-a-Day: Mildly Military

Mildly Military: Played… somewhat, due to a combination of the personality traits mentioned in various places (see, primarily, Blue and Orange Morality) which make regular boot-camp disindividuation/personality reformation, ah, less than productive, and the structure of the Imperial Military Service itself (the not-enough-forces-to-have-non-elite-forces model described under Badass Army).  It is the general opinion of their strategoi that when you have a military service composed of ubercompetent technical experts and Warrior Poets highly trained in inner discipline according to the local Spartan Way, a more collegial atmosphere is to be preferred.
