Country Watch Tower

A Country Watch Tower, such as you might find in Whitecastle or Candlemere, serves as a permanent base for the patrol Marshals who are located in the area. While there are a few resident troops to secure the barracks and operate local patrols, they are not really intended to be a town watch. However, they will add to the defence of a village or town, if it comes under attack. While they will support the local mayor / ruler - they are not policemen.

A Country Watch Tower normally has the following complement of staff.

1x Lieutenant Commandant
5x Guardsmen (Light Foot for local patrols)
3x Marshals (Light foot for longer distance patrols)
2x Messenger (Mounted Foot ready to carry messages)
2x Auxiliary Marshals (Maintain local roads / bridges /Infrastructure)
3x Auxiliary Guardsmen (Cook / store man / Etc)

It also serves as a base for another dozen (or so) Marshals who are either out on patrol somewhere, or taking a well deserved break.
