The Grand Lodge of the Frontier, The Frontiersmen's Lodge, or simply The Frontiersmen, are an independent band of mercenaries, hunters, and explorers that have been operating in the former Northern Commonwealth since their founding in 2231 by Willow T. Grier. They have been in numerous skirmishes with the region's tribals and raiders, most famously in their campaign against Denga Badtusk's Horde from 2254 to 2257. Since then, they have slowly expanded their operations into Idaho, most notably, New Twin Falls.

Activities and Interests
While the Frontiersmen have only been in contact with one pack, the "Skintakers", initial interaction was almost immediately hostile. The tribals' brutality and cannibalism make them one of the Frontiersmens' greatest foes in the region.
Prior to the Badtusk War, the Frontiersmen dismissed the clan as harmless and of little threat to civilization. This notion, along with their involvement in New Anaconda, would cause the Frontiersmen to delay their intervention in Denga Badtusk's warpath for nearly 16 years after it had begun.
The Frontiersmen and CAA are neither allies nor enemies. The Frontiersmen harbor a handful of American Army defectors in their ranks, and rarely operate near Deadwood due to a lack of employment opportunities, creating little diplomatic interaction between the two organizations.
