The Aranthaes City Guard is a formidable force that serves as the city council’s military and is responsible for protecting the city from both external threats and internal crimes.

Unlike the private merchant police or religious police forces with their specific fields of operation, the City Guard is dedicated to the defense of all Aranthaens.

The City Guard is well-funded and well-equipped, with access to the best weapons and armor available in the city. They are known for their strict adherence to the law and their intolerance for corruption within the city’s merchant classes. The Guard is organized into various companies and battalions, each with its own captain and hierarchy and under the overall command of Eryndor, Champion of Aranthaes.

Training for the City Guard is rigorous and takes several years to complete. Recruits are taught a variety of combat techniques, including swordsmanship, archery, and hand-to-hand combat. They also receive instruction in tactics, strategy, and leadership, as well as education in the history and traditions of Aranthaes.


The Guard is responsible for maintaining order within the city, including responding to any disturbances or crimes that occur. They are kept particularly busy in the crowded streets of Aranthaes Wynds where the rule of law is at it’s most stretched.

They Guard also have the task of patrolling the city’s walls and manning its gatehouses, ensuring that Aranthaes remains safe and secure from external threats.

In times of war, the City Guard plays a crucial role in the defense of Aranthaes. They are responsible for organizing the city’s defenses and coordinating with any allied forces that may come to its aid. The Guard is known for their bravery and their willingness to risk their lives in defense of the city and its people.


The City Guard are brave and dedicated fighters, well-trained warriors focused on keeping Aranthaes safe. Provided a player is not doing anything wrong they will have no trouble from members of the Guard. On the other hand if an adventurer is caught in the act of committing a crime, there’s little can be done to avoid being hauled off to the Wynds Jail for a period of time.

The Guard are helpful and knowledgeable, with a good idea of what is happening in the city and if they see you are in some way helping the city, they will go out of their way to be of assistance.
