Boon A guard can give accurate directions to any non-secret location in the city and can allow a PC to enter or leave through a gate after hours or without paying a gate tax.

Guards are vigilant soldiers, dedicated to keeping the peace and maintaining order. They favor disarming, tripping, sundering, and dealing nonlethal damage when possible to break up fights and quell the unruly. Weapons and armor may vary radically, including using reach weapons, one-handed weapons with lighter armor and shields, heavy tower shields, and so on.
