|Behind the scenes|
The Guards are usually sent round to villages like Locksley, Clun and Nettlestone, where they ask for money that the peasants don't have. Also, when Allan A Dale was hunting one of the King's deer, he was said to have a finger cut off. They also starved villages like Clun, no food to go in, no people to go out. The guards were only under orders. Not all guards liked doing this though. Joe Lacey, a rebellious guard tried to assassinate the Sheriff, but failed; he killed the Sheriff's decoy. The reason most guards emerged victorious was because they outnumbered and circled the Outlaws. However one punch to a guard and it was out cold.
