Order of Mercenaries
In the Great War, as in any war, there were those that sold their
allegiances to whatever god or army promised (and sometimes even paid) the
most. While mercenaries are not the most valiant, or romantic aspect of war
they have definitely proven to be an effective part. In the number of years
following the destruction of Thalos the number of mercenaries in Thera fell
drastically, due mainly to the perceived lack of need. Yet all the while,
around the Lands, bandits and various malcontents, along with others
considered lower forms of life, began to abound.
As the ages passed, a Sorcerer named Daedulus - involved at the time with
those known as the Order of Baeon - grew greater in power and, having
noticed this rather disturbing trend, discussed possible solutions with a
compatriot - the Elven Priest, Akron. Having decided the best way to combat
the rising scourge of banditry and other nefarious types of activity - and
to also deal with certain more political matters (that most were too
'delicate' to even acknowledge as existing) - was to attempt to consolidate
all of Thera's mercenaries under one banner, the two formed the intention to
do just that.
There being many who wished to see the destruction of the Order of Baeon and
due to a growing dissatisfaction with the hierarchy within the Order; it
came about that the first commission Akron and Daedulus decided to accept as
a consolidated guild of Mercenaries was the extremely generous bounty
offered on that very leadership. This, they believed, would show the world
that, not only was their order of mercenaries serious but that mercenaries
had a valid part to play in the ongoing growth of Thera. As fortune would
have it, Daedulus slew the then leader of the Order of Baeon within a very
short time and, raising the banner for himself, sent out a call to all
mercenaries to rally to him.
Wanting to provide all those mercenaries rallying to their banner with a
solid home base, Akron and Daedulus saw that the buildings of the now
defeated Order of Baeon were neither good enough, nor properly defensible.
With that they razed the old hall to the ground and, removing only what was
easily transferable, built a more defendable headquarters elsewhere.
