This article is a work in progress
Ack, back in ma prime, I roamed Errack's lands as a Pathfinder, free a was. Seekin' hidden truths in shadows, goin' on perilous expeditions, mappin' forgotten ruins, facin' unyieldin' beasts...
Memories a' the unknown still haunt ma soul, they do. But ah, the thrill a' embracin' the abyss! It shaped ma very bein'.
  Pathfinders, though they may go by different names in their mother tongues, their roles remain the same and they all serve the same singular purpose - Discovery of that which is yet to be discovered.  

Discovery, Danger and Wonderlust

In the shadowed unmarked realms of Errack, where the unknown conceals dark secrets and treacherous terrain, a select few are known as Pathfinders - courageous individuals tasked with venturing into dangerous and uncharted territories in search of invaluable truths. They are the pioneers who risk life and limb to unveil the mysteries that lie beyond the realm of knowledge.
Pathfinders are the daring souls chosen to embark on perilous expeditions, leaving the safety of grand walls to explore areas that have remained untouched by the footfalls of civilization. They serve as the vanguards of discovery, daring to tread where few have dared before, their task is a harrowing quest to map the secrets and hazards of the land before anyone else. Armed with a mix of ancient knowledge and intuition honed by experience, they navigate through the darkest corners of Errack, guided by a purpose greater than themselves.
These intrepid explorers are the first to lay eyes on forgotten ruins concealed beneath centuries of choking overgrowth, to encounter both monstrosities and previously unseen beasts alike, and to traverse treacherous landscapes where Demons and shadows intermingle.  

A Perilous Life

The role of a Pathfinder transcends that of a mere cartographer. They are warriors, scholars, and retrievers of people and possessions alike. The path they tread is one of relentless danger, and many who venture forth never return, leaving behind only the echo of their bravery, and an unfinished map.
As society clings to the safety of established territories, Pathfinders embody the essence of adventure and the pursuit of knowledge. Their expeditions unravel the mysteries that shroud the land beyond, and their discoveries shape the very fabric of Errack's grim history. Their tales inspire awe and fear in equal measure, a haunting reminder of the formidable forces that lie beyond the boundaries of civilization.
In the dark corners of Errack, where shadows dance with potent malevolence and danger, the Pathfinders remain an enduring symbol of courage, for they carry the torch of enlightenment into the uncharted abyss, driven by an insatiable thirst for discovery and a willingness to confront the unknown, no matter the cost.
