The Purple Campaign
The Golden Guard
The Golden Guard are a large, royally-appointed military detachment tasked with keeping travelers safe on The Goldenroad and preventing illegal mines from mining gold in the hills of Goldenrod Glen without observing the royal taxes vital to the maintenance of the kingdom. The Golden Guard number slightly over 1000 men with roughly half of that number at any given time stationed in their base at the fortified town of Algate on the southern shore of Kingbath Lake. The Golden Guard as a military unit was created by King Karl II in 72AK (year 10206) shortly after the discovery of gold in the hills of Goldenrod Glen. It is currently commanded by the King’s brother, Prince Juhan Sig Ketilsson.
