Okay, if the guard towers can't be properly manned, I have a backup idea, but it requires a Dungeon Master ruling.
I'll be able to make various kinds of homunculi shortly, some of which make excellent sentries. The catch is, the loss of a homunculi causes damage to its master, making having more than a handful running around extremely dangerous. (A fire in the wrong place killing ten means I could be on the other side of the planet and suddenly take 20d10 damage!)
Normally, making a homunculus involves a pint of the creator's blood and makes a creature devoted to said creator.
My question is, if another person is willingly involved, whose blood gets donated, could I make a homunculus bound to someone else?
The idea being, create a half dozen or so expeditious messengers (They look like flying lemurs and make excellent messengers and scouts) bound to an equal number of guards. Said critters stand watch in a perimeter around the keep, flying in to report anything out of the ordinary. They're constructs, so they don't ever get tired, and they obey perfectly.
