Shadowmoor Guard

Ranks Skills Magery Armors & Shields Weapons
Warrior

A force of heavy melee fighters who still want to maintain their mobility. They come to our village in search of a quiet place where to live. They also follow the rangers style of life. In exchange for the ospitality they find in Shadowmoor, they offer their services as village guards. While they are warriors, the guards still serve Nature as the rangers and druids do. A guard member shall not hurt Nature if he can avoid it. Their recruitment rules are as strict as the Rangers' and the Council decides on who to accept in the guard or not.

Ranks

Guard Captain
Commander of the Guard, the captain is allowed a seat in the guild Council. His duties include: training the Recruits and eventually assigning them a tutor, organizing patrols and assigning missions to guards when needed. He also interviews the candidates who want to join as Guards and then reports to the Council about the issues regarding the village security.

Shadowmoor Guard
Guards follow the Captain orders and their role is to ensure protection to the Village. They can arrest any criminals inside Shadowmoor. Outside of the village, they have no power (except when to arrest people who are criminals for Shadowmoor). A criminal is defined as someone declared criminal by the village Judges. The Guard should try to keep the peace in the village and not stir trouble or cause fighting if not really needed. Hot-heads and bloodlust warriors are not welcome in the guard. When in the village, every Shadowmoor Guard (not a recruit) can arrest a person who causes trouble if they catch him in the actCriminals will be locked in the Prison Cell. 

Guard Recruit
All the aspirants to the Guard join us as Recruits. During this period they get to know the guild better and, most important, they show their attitude and skills to the senior members. A recruit is strongly encouraged to seek a Guard willing to take him under his wing. This senior warrior will follow him during the initiation period and show him the way of the warrior. Being a recruit does not mean being accepted in the guild yet. When the Captain feels that the recruit is ready to join the  Guard, he will inform the Council. Eventually, the recruit will be asked to take the Rangers Oath and then he will become a Shadowmoor Guard.

Magery

The Shadowmoor Guards don't use magery. They also don't use scrolls and runebooks, ever. This means that Guards characters are not allowed to use the magery skill, even when they are away from the guild. Basically, no magery skill. Period. Magic devices like rings and wands are allowed.
