guard stop

Description

Description

This command allows a warrior to restrict who can use a particular exit in a room he or she is currently in. More than one person may guard an exit, but no single person may guard more than one. Exits may be guarded based on name, race, gender or from everyone. You can stop guarding an exit with guard stop and must do this before trying to guard another exit.

The act of guarding an exit depends on the guard's skill in fighting.defence.blocking. Those trying to escape will get past depending on their skill in fighting.defence.dodging. Guarding an exit will cost twenty-five guild points for every five seconds someone is trying to evade the guard.
