The Regent's Own, the City Watch, the Royal Army
The Red Guard are the Chanceway city watch and militia. They are part of the Royal Army, stationed in Chanceway. Like any other military unit, there are numerous roles to play with the Red Guard, but each bears the bright Regent’s Red coloration.
The lowest foot soldiers wear gambisons and steel caps and carry spears, daggers and shields. Men-at-arms may wear chain or boiled leather and sport long swords. Captains and Knights wear plate armor, with the highest ranking actually having red enamel added to the steel. The Knight Commander, the highest ranking Red Guard, wields a ruby-hilted blade called Swift Sentence that has been handed down for more than 300 years.
