Journal Entry: The Night’s Watch

The fundamental article of my political creed is, that despotism, or unlimited sovereignty, or absolute power, is the same in a majority of a popular assembly, an aristocratical council, an oligarchical junto, and a single emperor; equally arbitrary, cruel, bloody, and in every respect diabolical.

John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson, November 13, 1815


The Night Watch is an imperial organization founded shortly after the efficiency of the City Watch across the Empire proved nonexistent.

Largely unpopular, the Watchers act as spies and enforcers of the Imperial law across the Empire, having multiple hideouts and headquarters across the realms. They largely oppose the internal threats of the Imperial order’s hegemony, using outrageous rights, such as the Killing Order, to accomplish their mission.

Their most infamous division is located in the Capital City itself, with their headquarters residing in the House of Wanders, an ancient graveyard turned mansion on Alethor’s Hill. The House of Wanders dominates the Narrows area, a popular district ruled by vicious criminal syndicates.

Among their members, Dantena van Torquaz stands as their most dreaded element.
