Screams echo across the cavern walls, as a valiant knight charges ahead towards the source of the anguish. His armor clatters loudly, alerting a group of firenewts to his front. He welcomes their attention like an old friend and readies his behemoth towershield, placing it between himself and the scouts. As the moving bastion is pelted with a volley of arrows, he feels his shield make contact with something soft. He turns sharply into one of the cavern walls and slams it with full force. The sickening crunch of broken bones and dripping visera from under the shield confirms his kill, and he turns his ire towards the remaining scouts. Vanguards are terrifying sentinels donned in heavy metal armor and towering shields to devastate their enemies.

Dutiful Guardians

Similar to a paladin taking an oath, a vanguard is sworn to a duty of protection called their "mandate." These stalwart protectors feel an obligation to defend their allies, wearing their battle scars as badges of honor that mark this courageous duty fulfilled.
