4E- King's Bodyguards
Okay, so my current 4E group (a fighter, a two-sword ranger, a ranged rogue, a fire wizard, and a cleric) are getting ready to assassinate the high king of the most powerful kingdom on the continent. This king is known for being guarded by a crack group of soldiers, The Crimson Lion Legion. How would you suggest that I plan this encounter. Having access to a bunch of money, how do you think this king would prepare his bodyguards to resist general assassination attempts by powerful adventurers?
