Warden

Wardens are the chief guardians of borders and frontiers. Whether they stand watch over a single village or an entire region, wardens keep a vigilant eye out for outside threats to their charges. Wardens are stalwart folk, often called to duty by Erastil to protect those around them. Be it times of war or upon the frontier, wardens are often the balanced edge of a blade between a community and the wilds at its fringes.

Magistrates

Source Gamemastery Guide pg. 224
Magistrates are the cogs and gears that keep bureaucracy running, moving the machine along under the inertia of the status quo.

Sidebar - Related Creatures At Your Service

Magistrates can conscript others into service in a variety of positions.

Harbormaster: Bosun, dockhand, guard, ship captain.
Judge: Captain of the guard, executioner, guard, jailer
Tax Collector: Captain of the guard, guard, jailer, watch officer

Sidebar - Additional Lore Delaying Tactics

A magistrate can weaponize the bureaucracy. A judge might enforce an archaic law generally ignored yet still on the books. A tax collector could ask for the seal of a lord who is out of the region. The harbormaster could require all fees in local coin, fully aware money changers won't be open for days.
