Guardsman: Halt! Can ye not see this caravan is under Guardsmen protection?
Thief: So ye say! Go bug someone else, I got business t'handle!
Guardsman: A loudmouth eh? Guardsmens, make sure he ain't 'andling stolen goods.
Thief: Hands off me ye stinkin' bastards!
Guardsman: We handle the likes o' thee f'breakfast; stand down, we'll go easier on ye.
Scenario: Guardsmen Arrange Gathering Trip
In this scenario, a senior guardsman (possibly an officer) and a guardsman arrange to gather ore for the guild from a red zone.

Guardsman: I 'av been busy puttin' heretics t'rest. Them breed like rats, sah!
Officer: Aye, indeed.
Officer: The ore stocks are low, we should venture t'dangerous veins an' get more.
