Heroes and Heroines
Live Action Roleplaying
Many of the most important organisations within the Protectorate are guilds. To become a member of a primary guild is to be provided with security, training, a job for life, and status within society.
Trainee Auxiliaries are of great interest to the guilds. This curious military unit of problem solvers, oddballs and misfits has historically produced exceptional individuals who go on to lead dazzling, if occasionally rather short careers. Most unguilded auxiliaries are quickly 'snapped up' by one of the primary guilds. Those who do not fit in, for whatever reason, will most likely find themselves in one of the secondary guilds. Very few remain unguilded - a hard path to follow, as the unguilded must pay for all their training themselves. For in depth information on each of the guilds see the Guild Handbook.
|Guild||Status||News||Resources (note: Auxilliaries must hand in all resources at the end of the event, players must provide their own phys reps)|
|Overall Situation in the Protectorate||Sleep? You remember what this was and once, oh so long ago, you even had some. There are rumours that Mai'Chen has a marvolous device that can gift sleep to the user after a period of intense pain, but it almost killed that annoying Air Wizard, Marius, when he tried it. Pity about the almost, but it hasn't yet gotten to the stage for you where your own death is preferable to this waking nightmare - although that moment might be close. Some people, those with less will than yourself, have been unable to bear the nightmares and chosen the eternal rest instead but for now you soldier on. The guilds are fully stretched and what resources there are have been dedicated to a desperate mission being led by the Heroes of the Empire. You can't bear to think what it would mean should they fail, but every time you close your eyes you are given a very graphical clue...needless to say that despite the approaching Solstice, the festive spirit is no where in sight.|
The widescale invasion of The Protectorate by Malaice has provided the Legion Officers with an opportunity to widen their vocabulary
"F*** Off legionary. Back to the front lines with you."
|The Fellowship||Waxing||Even the Mercs are forced to admit that an all out invasion of your homeland must take priority over business.||none|
|The Mistwalkers||Waning||Even if you could find them, the answer is No.||none|
|Pyramid of Light||Waning||"Mortal Trinkets such as those you ask for shall simply stand between you and the Power of Goodness which is truly all the help you will need my child. Now please remove thyself from my office with great rapidity before I stick my boot up your backside. May the light be with you."||none|
|Halls of Power||Waning||The Neutral powers are likewise devoting all their energies into supporting the healing efforts, or trying to balance the desecration of the material plane by the tears being caused by the portals. There have been instances of wards around vital civilian and guild structures being circumvented by hepathic creatures who do not always seem to be affected by them. The Neutral sphere is being beseached for guidance.||none|
|Dark Sanctum||Waning||"Yes, I'd love to help. Lie here while I get my sacrificial dagger. Oh...where'd they go?"||none|
|The Groves||Waning||"Ask not what Nature can do for you, but rather what my wooden club will do to your head if you keep whining for help rather than getting out there and fixing the world."||none|
|The University||Normal||You pause at the threshold of office of the head of your school. Then you think what they might do while starved of sleep, stretched by supporting all sorts of actions against the Hepaths, and faced with a spotty student asking for something. You decide to leave their door closed.||none|
