- "Warders" redirects here. For other uses of the term, see Warder (disambiguation).
In peacetime, the holder of the position of Warder must make certain that the static defenses stay in good shape and that regular patrols secure the integrity of the bawn's borders (even if the Warder herself has to make those patrols). The Warder decides who may enter the bawn and who may have access to the caern's heart. In very small septs, the Warder may also act as Keeper of the Land, Master of the Challenge or hold some other major or minor position in addition to her guardianship duties.
