Ankh-Morpork Palace Guard

Devoted to protecting the Patrician and his staff, the brave men and women who join the Ankh-Morpork Palace Guard often find themselves in tense situations involving silly uniforms, irate diplomats, and impatient superiors. Although formerly a division of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, they considered themselves too elite for that and formed their own branch. As such, the job usually attracts recruits that look good in uniform, follow orders, and avoid taking initiative as much as possible while on the job.

The headquarters of the Palace Guard are located at the Patrician's Palace in the midst of the glistening city of Ankh-Morpork, the centre of civilisation.

General Description[]

The Ankh-Morpork Palace Guard is a very utilitarian guild, with very few "cosmetic" primary skills. This will appeal to some players, especially Numberchasers, but others will find the lack of readily available "toy skills" stifling.
