History

Monster Hunters are a special kind of people, who often gain their interest in monster slaying at a very young age. The truly skilled reach adulthood and the rest either dies or finds other paths in life. Some might say they are a fearless lot, but that is a mistaken view. The fearless ones ends up dead, meanwhile those who handle fear as a factor, survive encounters with the most dreaded monsters of this world. Many of them told me its because the fearless don’t plan and proper planning is needed to overcome monsters of unknown powers.

Organization

Monster Hunters generally lives as connected to one of the many Organizations, a Nobility house, or as free Monster Hunters hired from job to job. Easily recognised by the metal of the sigil they all bear.

  • Copper – are those who live from task to task
  • Silver – are those hired by Organizations
  • Gold – are those hired by Nobility

Monster Hunters with copper sigils pay for their expenses from the prepaid amount they recieve to complete a job. Those wearing silver and gold emblems live with exepenses paid and merely have to sign bills, that will be passed upwards the Nobility ranks untill it reach a noble covering both the Monster Hunter and the supplier of whatever where billed. Thus does commoner, merchant and everyone else willingly aid Monster Hunters whenever they appear. Generally people does not charge Monster Hunters for water, sparse meals and a night at the hayloft or stable if thats all required or possible.

Mostly they live in utter luxury though, as they at times find treasures beyond imagination or much coveted items. The Monster Hunter law is ‘Finders Keepers’, yet some have an agreement with their hiring head to share part of found loot and the do honour paying their dues.

This ancient system of trust, is something the Monster Hunters uphold with the utmost care and should they hear about a ‘lawbreaker’ or an imposter. They rally to find, catch and execute the culprit.
