When the Time Rifts opened up once again, an army of gigantic, self-propelled Exosuits slowly marched through it. The Guardians, as it turned out, were the parting gift of a dying World Council from an alternate future, where the impact resulted in a fatal catastrophe. They left behind their doomed world to help us save ours.
With the Guardians of the Council module, players gain access to a new, Path-independent Exosuit type, the Guardian. When you take a World Council Action, you may permanently enlist one of them. The Guardians operate without Workers and even have their own designated Action spaces, where they can take a Capital Action without being contested.
The Guardians of the Council module is included in the Anachrony Classic Expansion Pack.
