Battle Cry (1/Day). Each creature of the honor guard's choice that is within 30 feet of it, can hear it, and not already affected by Battle Cry gains advantage on attack rolls until the start of the honor guard's next turn. The honor guard can then make one attack as a bonus action.


Parry. If the honor guard is hit by a melee weapon attack from a creature the honor guard can see, the damage is reduced by 1d6 + 3.

A garrison of honor guards stationed for battle, Source

Born and bred for war and battle, the honor guards fear little if any creature living or dead. They thrive in the battlefield seeking glory and honor though few ever seek to create rifts of war and see it grow. Few of them can say they live a quiet life, and even fewer can say that they had a family to come back to after the battle.

Always Recruiting. The honor guard are always looking for men or women to join them, all are allowed no matter their race or religion as long as they hold their allegiance to their current lord.
