The Order of the Gilded Compass
The Order of the Gilded Compass is an adventurer’s guild that spans all of Astrea. It was originally founded by small group of adventurers in Ophrat, and overtime grew to be one of the biggest organizations in Astrea. They have headquarters in each country, including the free cities, but the main headquarters are still located in Ophrat on the boarder with Astris, so it can be centrally located in the world.
The operate as a massive network that connects adventurers. Within the order are many individual adventuring groups, all situated in different cities. They can get contracts from the order, and call on them for help or funding, and in turn they pay part of their contact free to the Order. Adventuring groups can form on their own away from the Order, but most most contracts go to the order.
Each region has a headquarters where they can get contracts and send them out to all of the associated groups. People can also bring jobs to the individual groups themselves, which they often do when it is more of a local job.
