The Wayfarer's Guild




"One finger a key,
One finger a blade,
One finger a needle,
With which his curse was laid".

-Excerpt from The Liturgy of Xovic,
the Seven-Fingered God


The realm of Olanthus was once split by an unimaginable calamity. In the age of purity, Xovic, King of Life, stole magic from the realm of dreams and sowed it throughout the mundane world to create ley lines of power for his children to draw from. Mortal races used this new found power to reshape their world, and even their very being. However, in their simplistic understanding of the forces they were dealing with humans delved too deep and attempted to tap directly into the ley lines. The breaches reshaped the landscape around them and all life within, resulting in magic races and creatures that previously didn't exist.

In the world as it is now, true humans are a minority. The after effects of the ley breaches warped them and the other mortal races into a variety of new forms which dominate the landscape, and the rise of dangerous magical creatures and phenomena has lead to the rise of adventuring guilds to combat them. One such guild, known as the Wayfarers, is a shelter for those who have no place left to go. Criminals who chose service over sentence, those carrying insurmountable debts, and even those who simply had nothing left and sought out something bigger than themselves.




That's the idea! I've been out of the game for a while, so I want to run a nice guild RP. I'm not planning on this being a big sandbox full of fetch quests though, I have a lot of different elements I'm planning to incorporate if this gets enough interest. I'd be happy to hear your thoughts, and answer any questions!

So if it isn't sandbox, how do you plan on running it?

@Guilty Spark Is this going to be narrative driven or will it have RPG elements?

Alright, I'm awake! Thanks for the interest everyone!

@ERode I'm not playing a character myself. I plan on using my cast of guild NPCs, including a Handler for Initiate rank guild members, to introduce assignments that will form a choice-driven narrative.

@Dark Cloud Primarily narrative driven, I'll be keeping in mind the strengths and weaknesses of each character as things resolve, but I'm not sure I should introduce hard mechanics.

@Metztli Absolutely, they're allowed!

I... this is probably a mistake, but mark me down as potentially interested depending on character restrictions and magick
