Notice: The application for The Huntsmen can be found at the bottom of this post.

What will they do?

The Huntsmen are trained in every aspect of mythical creature if the problem may arise to launch the deployment of the regime. They are highly disciplined in the art of most known creatures but also responsible for the documentation of new creatures to further ensure the safety the people of Arcas even after death. These tasks include, but are not limited to, documenting new creature behavior, dissecting and learning the creature in its entirety, learning and teaching new methods to counteract such actions of any creature and etcetera.

 

Summary of tasks:

Tasks of The Huntsmen outline a broad spectrum, allowing for great diversity within in the group which, in turn, leads to better cooperation and overall teamwork, increasing productivity done by the organization. A member of The Huntsmen may not be limited to one, but a few if they so wish to partake in such actions. The most basic, yet challenging, of the roles would be the hunters. These folk would be involved in the slaying and containment of any sort of beast. Next, the scholars may document any creature atop of studying foreign beasts, flora and anything that is generally unknown and undocumented. Contractors will be inventors and craftsmen, inventing and designing new ways to take down such creatures as well as building and creating weapons to assist in the killing and detainment of otherworldly beasts that require such weaponry. Scriveners will make sure any information completed or in-progress will reach public or private hands if needed, transporting important or fresh documents, they will also partake in the organization of The Huntsmen, making sure everyone is up to duties. Lastly, the medics and alchemists of The Huntsmen will be responsible for experimenting with new ingredients in part of healing injured scouts either on the field or in safety. These tasks are not limited to the ones listed above, any member may speak to any high ranking official to arrange a special and unique commitment.

 

Summary of rankings:

The rankings of The Huntsmen are completely unique to the guild but some pay homage to an old monster hunting guild known as the Vizmak Brigade. It is designed in the way of a ladder, much like any traditional military but strays from beaten path when it comes to the names of such ranks.

What does ‘Vizmak’ mean?

Vizmak is a term of slang simply referring to skilled monster hunters, a group of which derived from early Atlas, the named Vizmak is commonly thought as monster hunters and scholars whom specialize in the unknown. It refers to breakers of darkness and unknown tyranny, to break the bounds of where light does not reach and to spread information to most. The Vizmak were trained in the art of survival atop of their excellent ability to monster hunt, knowing more than enough to survival in the Yatl Wastes for years, if needed be.

 

The Huntsmen will relate themselves to the now deceased Vizmak Brigade, to pick up the torch and provide safety to those across Arcas whom live in tyranny of monsters and beasts. The guild itself will be riveting and will press an extreme amount of mental strain to whomever is a member of The Huntsmen guild. Though they must strive to provide a light to the darkness that is Arcas and it’s creatures.

 

How do I join?

Payment:

For each event a member attends, they will be guaranteed at least 50 mina for that event, if the bounty’s mina count is higher than the payment will be raised for that event. All event mina will be added up and in a bi-weekly cycle the payments will be handed out to its members. The remaining mina will put into Huntsmen savings or go to improving the guild as a whole.

Roleplay

Name: Adalhard Muller

Race: Human

Age: 24

Desired role: Hunter

Reason for enlistment: To be frank, my reason for enlistment is a selfish one. While helping the land and saving others might be its own benefit! I wish to gain a name and honor for myself! Honor I had lost from my family and peoples sometime ago. I want this name of mine to be spread so when it reaches their ears all their doubts will wash away into the mud and if I have to die to prove to those peoples or anyone else I am less than worthy, I gladly will. Though, to study and watch what makes these beasts tick should be enjoyable in its own right.

Race: Human

Age: 28

Desired role: Hunter

Reason for enlistment:

 

I once took part in a "revival" of a certain monster hunting guild, foolish (metagamy), and naive as I was, doomed to fail from the beginning. Although that doesn't stop a bastard from doing what he does when it is his passion, that which drives him. Another guild upon the rise, and nothing better to spend my time with, why not apply for the job where my own skills apply. 

Dread the beasts.
