The Royal Guards were established by Zhu Yuanzhang, taking orders from him directly. However by the reign of Emperor Yongle, they had cultivated more skill, became stronger and more ambitious and finally broke away from the Imperial Court, joining the Jianghu.
Their headquarters, composed of gruesome, prison-like buildings, is located in the west of the capital. The Royal Guards undertake secret missions and have special privileges and abundant funds. Even though they no longer carry the authority of the imperial court, they are still an immensely powerful sect. They are cruel and cold-blooded, practising sinister yin style martial arts; all sects in the Jianghu fear them.
The main weapon of a Royal Guard is his broad sabre, however, Royal Guards are also proficient in barehanded skills, mastering the Eagle Claw Fist. Furthermore, they are renowned for their fierce and devastating usage of the chain hidden weapon.
The Royal Guards roam the Jianghu, secretly participating in the affairs of the Wulin and conducting spying, arrest and interrogation activities.
They are extremely brutal and will use any means necessary to accomplish their mission.
They are regarded by all in the Jianghu as an Evil sect.

Each sect has its own rules and regulations. Breaking those rules will lead to the obtaining of “Sect Statutes Points”. Upon exceeding 100 Sect Statutes Points, the player will be punished by their sect.
Royal Guard Sect's rules:
|Being dressed incorrectly||10 points|
|Harming the same sect (including Guild War)||40 points|
When a player enters their sect's zone while having more Sect Statutes Points than allowed, they will be directly teleported to the sect's repenting zone. An animated punishment will be broadcast, the player’s life (HP) will be halved and a strength-weakening debuff will be attached to them for a stipulated time period.
