The Trentguard

The Trentguard is a loose organization of individuals devoted to the preservation and advancement of the natural world. It is a faction that transcends political boundaries, for wilderness is present everywhere.

The Trentguard operates mainly through small guilds and individuals, each reporting in on their activities at the annual Trentmeet.

Motto. “The world is our home. We will defend it to our last breath.”
Beliefs. The Trentguard’s beliefs can be summarized as follows:

  • Nature is a wondrous thing to be preserved and protected. Civilization should leave sufficient space for the wilds, and live in harmony with them.
  • Otherworldly powers are a threat to the natural beauty of the world and must be guarded against.
  • Showing proper respect and reverence to primal spirits makes the world more beautiful.

Goals. Protect and preserve the natural beauty of wild lands, and guard against otherworldly threats to them.
