‘And if the master thief ‘The Great Pilferer’ comes after the loot before we escape this town?’ Koram asked the others.
‘I invested in a set of scrolls, I believe our guards will be alert tonight, I say no worries, sleep well,’ Chalk replied.
‘I will be on alert too, just in case,’ offered Nudge the gnome thief.
‘Nah, just get some rest, I believe those spells will do us good,’ replied the sorcerer.
With a pout the gnome unrolled his blankets and curled up to sleep.
Duration: One hour per level of caster.
A rather odd spell, Guard compels the target of the spell to stand watch over a certain person, place or thing. There is a saving throw allowed at -1, but often the spell is cast upon someone that is obviously interested in the particular subject to be watched over (-2 to resist if he or she tries due to their interest and concern). If cast on someone already willingly guarding something that target will not fall asleep (save magical Sleep) or be distracted, being vigilant and alert.
