The Losthaven Guard is the central point of order, peace, and law-enforcement in the bustling hub-city of Losthaven. Established in the early years of the city's founding by King Almior, the Guard has served the city well, ensuring that the corruption and vagrancies that afflict other cities don't spread like wildfire.

By working diligently to keep the city safe, members of the Guard have become entitled to armour and weapons free of charge from various merchants around the city. For cloth armour visit Veruca at the Losthaven Fashion Shoppe. For leather armour visit the Loomis brother's tannery. For anything and everything steel-related visit Mallek in his smithy. For melee weapons you will want to seek out Grebor, or if a bow is more your style head to Iolo's shop.

Honor, for the Losthaven Guard, is a singular word that actually accounts for a few different factors that the guard leadership values.

Primary among these values is duty. Your main function as a member of the Losthaven Guard is to defend the city from roaming attackers, keep the peace between citizens, and facilitate law and order among the populace in general. Your effectiveness and previous record of performing these duties accounts for the largest part of your perceived honor among your peers and ranking officers.

No less important are the values of respect and discipline. When you combine these two values by displaying unerring respect to the members of your unit, and to your superior officers, while maintaning the sharp vigilance of a well-trained soldier you not only perform your job more fully, but you gain the mutual respect of your peers; the benefits of which, both tangible and intangible, are hard to deny.

In moments of quiet repose you may think over the actions you have performed in the past and by doing so perhaps gain some insight into how well you are honored among your peers. To do so, simply type think of my honor.
