Overview: This guild is the largest of all the guilds on Cyanoor, due to the fact that everybody needs food. Originally, the guild only consisted of hunters, but it has grown to also include fishermen, farmers, and other foragers. Officially, it does not own either the Steltorian Forest, although it has attempted to lay claim to it on more than one occaision for its hunters and herbalists. It does own the Green Plains, though, which are used for growing grains, fruits and vegetables.
Rules and Regulations: The Hunter’s Guild is an open guild, allowing anyone to live in its lands, but does not provide protection to those who choose to do so. Most often, however, families live together on large farmsteads, and their numbers scare off most potential bandits. Its laws are basic, following the golden rule, but the guild also asks its members to go to the Warrior’s Guild if they are having any real problems. The Warrior’s guild has been quite helpful in this, often sending out small parties of mercenaries to defend those in need. Most often, it’s from ruffians in the Thief’s Guild.
The Guild Today: Cyanoor is growing quickly, and importing foods is more expensive than growing them oneself. The main problem the guild has today is the shutdown of the Warrior’s Guild. This sudden closure of their greatest ally has left them nearly defenseless against the lawless riffraff from the Ghost District. Farmers are taking measures to protect their families and their crops, purchasing weapons from the Crafter’s Guild and taking up watch over their estate. But Kyne is doing his best, asking those with some fighting capability to take up residence with those who don’t. It is a temporary solution at best.
