The City Guard
The City Guard
The City Guard is unique among most law enforcement in that they not only work for the government, but are also a fully functioning guild in their own right. They are one of the largest guilds in terms of members and they frequently work with other guilds to apprehend criminals. Their members are usually found in four flavors: Swordsmen, Spearmen, Archers, and Battlemages. They are constantly on the lookout for new members and have some of the best funding in the city. The general of the Guard is Berthold Simon, a legendary warrior and tactician.
