The Rise of Arda
The City Watch are responsible for enforcing the laws of the city and the kingdom within Arda and its immediate surrounding areas. They are in charge of manning the cities gates, patrolling the streets, and protecting its citizens. This is a large task and it is not feasible for the city to maintain a watch large enough to handle everything so the city long ago instituted a Citizens Watch to help lighten the load.
Currently lead by Sir Galin Ryodan, the watch employees about 60 watchmen. Competition to get into the watch is fierce because the Knights of the Realm recruit almost exclusively from the ranks of city watches.
Despite the issues with crime in the city, the government consistently keeps the watch underfunded and prevents Sir Ryodan from investigating certain crimes.
