Call of the Vigilant
Last king of Marrek, also know as the Vigilant King
Rouhgly 120 years ago the Vigilant King, Issardos II, was the last of the royal line. When a Horror breached the defenses of the Citadel, the king led the Royal Guard and the Vigilants against the beast and managed to slay it and seal the breach at the cost of many lives, including the king himself. With his dying breath, Issardos declared the head of the Vigilants as his heir.
Ever since, the Most Vigilant and his trusted compatriots have ruled the kingdom. Although civilians can gain great wealth and influence among the population, all upper policy-making positions in the government are manned by those who have sworn themselves to service: Current or past Vigilants.
