The 'guard' command permits you to express your intention to guard a particular exit from particular groups of people. The default syntax is 'all', which means you attempt to prevent everyone from leaving, but you can specialise this. 'guard east against zombie' for example will cause you to guard that exit from anything that matches 'zombie. 'guard east against drakkos' will attempt to prevent anyone with the name 'drakkos' from passing.
