The Company Store
You tired of starving in the streets of Society? Or trying to scrape by on meager earnings in a breaker house? Welcome to The Guild, I am one of the many Delve Masters here. The work is dangerous, but you get a bed and food, as well as a chance to really escape whatever hole you wound up in, be it by birth or ill fortune. The Company contracts with us when they find a site that has an Artifact. Sometimes they try and use their own moles and delvers, but that doesn’t usually work out. More’s the pity. Anyway, they ask us to provide them with delvers who can handle the extraction of Artifacts found by moles. That’s where you come in. You are a delver, and as such you have probably the most prestigeous job here in The Town. Other people can be cartwrights and coopers, you have the wit and brawn to be a warrior; like out of the stories.
In other places of Society, you would be shunned for your violent and often deadly solutions to disputes, but not here. Here you are welcome and encouraged to explore and pursue your skills and abilities to their natural end, as long as you apply them only when delving.
Some simple rules to keep in mind now that you are a member of The Guild:
- You serve the house
- You protect the house
- You bring honor to the house
Do this, and you will be rewarded.
There’s one more small matter to attend to, and that is your guild dues; but we can cover that later. Right now, get acquainted with the grounds and meet some fellow members. I’ll contact you when a commission comes in.
