Those who follow the Oath of the Guardian dedicate themselves to protecting the Balance, the metaphysical deadlock between interplanar factions. The Guardians believe that no one force, whether good or evil, law or chaos, should gain too much power.

Tenets of the Ancients

The tenets of the Oath of the Ancients have been preserved for uncounted centuries. This oath emphasizes the principles of good above any concerns of law or chaos. Its four central principles are simple.

Maintain the Balance. Each planar entity and region is important to maintaining the coherence of the whole. Strike at those who would disrupt the workings of the cosmos.

Preserve the Sanctity of Secret Lore. Ensure that only those with the wisdom and insight needed to wield cosmic secrets have access to them.

Dispel Ignorance of the Cosmos. Push back the veil of mystery that fiends canuse to cloak their villainous aspirations. Extend our understanding of magic and the planes through exploration and inquiry.

Spread Understanding of the Balance. Share what you have learned responsibly, so that others can understand the scope of the threats you face and help you preserve the world.
