I think it would be more precise to say the Crown of Atlantia does not
hire mercenaries, and I don't see a reference in Master Malcolm's note
about either the Crown or the Kingdom hiring mercenaries. His use of
'we' in lower case could as easily suggest any individual hiring levies
to fight, as was done all too often in period, even by the King.

Though we are not now that strength, which in old days moved earth and heaven,
that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time
and fates, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.
