Characters handy with a sword and willing to follow the Storm Lords’ orders without question can easily find a place in the Stormreach Guard. The pay is 3 sp per day (6 sp for officers); many guards supplement their income by accepting bribes. Anyone who joins the Stormreach Guard and completes the three-month training has all past crimes wiped away; most change their names to reflect this new beginning. The Storm Lords have extradited criminals before, but they stand by the Stormreach Guard. As long as guards serve the lords faithfully, they can leave their pasts behind.
