8.6.2 NEXUS GUARDIANS

Guardians are a special type of non-sentient guard that must be completely
controlled by a Guild Protector or Guild Security. They can only be summoned on
non-prime planes (ethereal, elemental, cosmic). They cost 200 power per person
and will last 100 days. 

NEXUS COMMANDS
==============

NEXUS GUARDIAN LIST
- Lists everyone who has called a guardian, the guardians locations (if not
dismissed), and how many days left before they will decay.

NEXUS GUARDIAN CREATE
- Creates a guardian
- Costs 200 discretionary power.
- Lasts 100 days unless killed.
- Can be summoned or dismissed from any non-prime plane.

NEXUS GUARDIAN BECOME

- Player can control the guardian with GUARD commands.

GUARD COMMANDS

GUARD CHAT <text>

GUARD STATUS

GUARD DISMISS
- Dismisses the guardian. You can still BECOME the guardian again without having
to create another so long as the one-month timer has not expired.

NOTE: You will see who enters and exits the guardians location, as well as all
normal conversations.

NOTE: If the guardian dies, the controller of the guardian will die as well. It
is imperative to keep track of your guardian's health and try to recall it
before it dies (or you will die too). Once a guardian dies, you will have to
create a new one (and thus spend another 200 discretionary power) before you can
summon another. Remember, it is ALWAYS important to dismiss your guardian if it
is not in use. 

NOTE: Guardians on their own may not be very practical or effective defenders.
In other words, guardians are not meant to replace actual player fighters when
it comes to defending against raids, etc. However, in conjunction with player
fighters, they can certainly be an effective and deadly support.
