City of the Beast
The Cartographer’s Guild
Despite its unassuming name, the cartographers are some of the most tough roughnecks in the city. They take anyone crazy enough to brave the world far outside the walls in an effort to map unknown lands. However the caveats to that are that you must brave it alone, and if you don’t complete your map you don’t get paid or let back into the city. A monthly supply drop is given to each cartographer for three years, however that’s only enough to barely get by on. Additionally, these maps are filed away in a vault where they are kept locked and secure away from anyone outside the guild. The Cartographers that come back alive are paid lavishly, and usually so well that they can retire comfortably at that point, however there’s something about the far outlands that changes a man. Most choose not to stay in the city, and instead go into self-imposed exile outside the wall, never to be seen again.
