Alia - The Age of Exploration
Every city has a guard, and the guard is usually proportional to the size and population of the city. In most cases, a ration of 1 guard to 10 villagers holds true. However, in particularly turbulent holds, the guard has been known to expand their forces.
There isn’t much to say about the city guard. They uphold the law and apprehend those who seek to break it.
Some sources has it that the guards are poorly trained and prone to panic, but in reality, the guardsmen and guardswomen endure rigorous training and are well equippped for the task.
They mostly recruit citizens, and are open to anyone who are willing to lay their lives on the line to protect the people.
