"Is bodyguarding being planned? (Something like Escort + redirecting attacks & grapples from escorted to escorter.) There's no real way to reduce the odds a non-combat character gets grabbed or attacked on the streets, and that limits public appearances. I know there was a thread about this, but I can't find it, not even in Search."
No, it is not currently planned. Not ruling it out but there are a lot of other things that are higher up on the list and we have limited coding resources.
