In the city of Storm's Landing, there are two major facets of government: The Guard, and the Council of Five.
The guard stands to bring order to the ever tumultuous city.
The Council of Five receives and relays the whims of the people.
Law and Order, by our own hand, or none.

There are three ranks in the guard force: the Officers, the Lieutenants, and the Captain. The Officers are most bolstered in numbers and the first line of defense between Storm's Landing's citizens and the dangers that lurk. The Officers are permitted to detain and arrest and perform investigations. The Lieutenants are tasked with the responsibility of engaging and closing investigations and delegating responsibilities in said investigations to the Officers. Lieutenants also receive reports from the Officers, elevate them to the Captain as needed. The highest rank is the Captain. The Captain, who is elected by a joint vote between members of the Council and the Guard. The Captain takes on the highest role in the delegation of responsibility to the rest of the guard.

The Guard's fort can be found directly southwest of the Grand Cathedral, within a stone's throw.

All are allowed to apply for a position as Officer. Those who hold property in the city are preferred. Affiliation with a given faction will not be considered as an advantage but as a reference.
