History: The Beastguard was formed nearly half a century ago when a group of warriors returned home to their village to find it destroyed. Searching the remains they found a Werebeast the manor over the body of the former lord. They slayed the beast and vowed that no warrior would have to endure the hardship they they had. They traveled the land around hunting down monster that preyed on isolated villages.
Description: The Beastguard is a military organization that hunts down monster for villages and isolated communities. For a price they will slay creatures such as Vampires, Trolls, Ogres and Werebeasts. They aren’t suppose to hunt down bandits or act as assassins, but may intervene if forced to. The Beastguard operates mostly out of the city of Phivos, but has had its members travel to the all over the Sunderlands.
Life in the Beastguard: Most members spend only around a year, a fourth of which is spent in training. Most of the their time is spent either waiting for the call at the Fort or traveling to sight of the monster. Life in the Beastguard is for the most party not very glamorous or exciting. Once their first tour is over, most return to their former lives, but are ready to be called upon. More experienced members of the Beastguard or those with talented or unusual skill sets, the Vanguard, are more direct in their pursuit of monsters. They are the ones that usually call upon the Homeguard to come when there is a threat they cannot handle alone.
