Formed from the remnants of the Imperial Army, the Imperial Guards are an independent, influential and powerful faction, maintaining order and preventing open war between Noble Houses. While the Noble Houses squabble amongst themselves, cloaked in subterfuge, espionage and counter-espionage, the Guards are more idealistic. Their primary goal is the restoration of the Empire to its former glory, regardless of how unrealistic this seems at the present.
You can sign in Imperial Guards in Barracks of Teron or switch to IG later (as example - in the end of questline of Assassin Guild)
|IG guild quests in Teron (spoilers):|
|1. Attack merchant caravan in raider disguise (5 enemies, 2 allies). Kill all of raiders. After that you must kill 2 wounded recruits in Barracks.|
|2. Attack one of the Antidas towers. You can attack together with legioners or try to go first (some Int needed). In later case you need some block or dodge if you don't want to have damage from arrows. After that you will be in fight with 2 guards alone for some time.|
|3. Final quest, after that you will leave Teron. You will be head of delegation to Antidas. You can provoke fight and kill him (Kingslayer achievement) or try to persuade him to join force with Carrinas.
