The pomestnik are the main type of warriors in the Matriarchate of Periaslavl. The plural form is pomestniki.
Most pomestniki in Periaslavl are cavalry, though this is not necessarily true in rougher areas of Periaslavl or with some boyars near important rivers.
Usually, they wear steel lamellar or riveted chainmail, with open-faced helms, often with a nasal. They wield a wide variety of weapons, depending upon the role and situation. They are usually well-trained and disciplined.
They have a long-standing rivalry with the vestniki, though they do work together when necessary.
