23a:Royal guard

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about an older version of DF.

The Royal Guard is activated by the arrival of the Baron. Dwarves are assigned to the Royal Guard in the same manner as the Fortress Guard (from the view -> preferences menu), and act in most respects like the Fortress Guards do. They are mainly involved in the collection of taxes, but they will also spar in the barracks and can be assigned weapons and armor.

The Baron will receive unhappy thoughts if there are not enough Royal Guards. You need 1/20 of your population, rounded down, in the Royal Guard to avoid this.

Due to a bug, unhappy thoughts about insufficient royal guards only happen for the first 3 months after arrival, rather than starting after a grace period (Bug:5844). A patch for version can be found below which fixes this problem:
