Royal Guards are the elite private guards of the rich and famous. They will band together to defend their masters at the cost of their own lives without a second thought.

Royal Members.The royal guards are usually composed almost entirely of members of noble families, and although a common man can be a member of them. They are usually viewed with tired eyes at best.

Nameless Lords.When a royal guard enlists to guard a royal house, they are forced to discard their old names and replace them with the title of lord if they did not have one. This leads to the Royal Guard being simply called Lord or Highness as they do not own a name unless granted by their Lord.

Incorruptible.One can never bribe or persuade a royal guard to turn against his lord by promising anything, unless the lord truly deserves what has happened to him or because the lord has treated the guard badly.

Few in numbers.In some cases, the ruler chooses to have a single Royal Guard rather than having multiple of them. This is based on the Royal Guard also being a secret keeper to their lord; Therefore, the Lord does not want more than one person to know such mysteries.

masters and apprentices.It is required of a Royal Guard to train an apprentice to take his or her place in the event of an accident, but they must usually allow for those who have great and unique heritage and skill.

The hideout of a royal guard

Royal guards prefer castles and fortresses as their camps, fortified places with hard and sturdy walls surrounding them. Besides, they also prefer to have soldiers around them all the time, they prefer protecting the place and its inhabitants. Under the watchful eyes of a royal guard, any location can be a fortress never destroyed.

Lair Actions

At an initiative score of 20 (losing initiative bonds), the Royal Guard knows how to use their location to their advantage, whether using martial or arcane knowledge. The Royal Guard performs a Hide Action to trigger one of the following effects: The Royal Guard cannot use the same effect two turns in a row:

  • The Royal Guard can call in reinforcements from nearby guards. At every initiative score of 20, Royal Guard allies appear in the form of a single knight and 1d6 guards. This cave action can be used after 1d4 + 2 turns.
  • The Royal Guard carefully analyzes the situation and decides what is the best course of action to give them the advantage on attack rolls, skill checks, and saving throws until initiative is 20 in the next turn.
  • The Royal Guard can order their allies to attack using whatever method is most helpful to them. If the ally attacks the target of the order, the Royal Guard gains an advantage on their next attack against the target.

The Royal Guard cannot repeat an effect until both have been used, and they cannot use the same effect on consecutive turns.
