History of the Organization: In the mists of
group of well meaning types got together for the purpose of cleaning
the land of monsters. In due time, and with much blood, they managed
this. However, once the land is cleaned, what do monster cleaner
outers do? They formed a guild and decided to clean out other lands.
Needing some direction the Guild proceeded to compile a list of
those creatures deemed as "evil" and as fair game for the
Guild. Populated in the main by uneducated sword jocks the list
boiled down to "things we don't like" truly evil or not.
The list is maintained by the Guild. It is eagerly added to and
seldom pruned. It has only the vaguest and most formal relationship
with reality. As the atmosphere of the Guild will all but physically
drive anyone with any real knowledge away, this "truth" of
the List is self perpetuating.
Meetings of the Guild have a
vague nod to business, (They are usually broke) a telling of tall
tales (usually) of Evil slain, and general bucking each other up and
discussion the list over enough alcohol to drown a giant. It's rather
a queer reverse of an AA meeting where the abusers encourage each
other in their abuse, the rightness of their point of view and the
correctness of their "knowledge".
Most PCs will never
encounter a Guild meeting, but may encounter Guild members attempting
to join their adventuring party to "SLAY EVIL!" They might
attempt to recruit the PCs into the Guild. Wisdom loss from agreeing
to this would be up to the GM.
