In the World Beyond, the Guardian can keep more zombies at bay than an average citizen. The guardian retains this advantage even when travelling as part of a group!

In the desert, the Guardian can face 4 zombies alone instead of the usual 2 (for a normal citizen).

How do I play as a Guardian?

Normally, when in the desert, a lone citizen can face a maximum of 2 zombies. Any more than that and they will become trapped and will no longer be able to flee. As a Guardian, you can face a maximum of 4 zombies thanks to your trusty Riot Shield.

Every guardian gives a defensive bonus to the town.

When on watch, a guardian gives 30 additional defence points to the town, they also have a 5% greater chance of surviving if the hordes' attack is inferior to the town's defense points.

This "cocktail" is disgusting, but at least it's expensive... PeteR
