Description

To protect the interests and the citizens of the Agatean Empire's only Sea Port, the Sun Emperor created a legion of crack warriors known as the Imperial Guard. These skilled, fierce and determined troops patrol the walled city of Bes Pelargic ready to stomp on the fingers of the terminally inquisitive and to reinforce the belief that to be a citizen in the Agatean Empire is to be the most fortunate of mortals.

Location

The impressive training facilities and headquarters of the Imperial Guard are located inside the grand entrance hall of the Imperial Palace. This shining example of the graceful style and incredible wealth of the Empire is located on the east side of Bes Pelargic, at the northeast end of, fittingly, Palace Approach.
