FAF Organization in Wanted Hero | World Anvil


Unlike other organizations, factions, and guilds, the Fishis Archive Foundation occupies the whole of a district within the walls of Clockwork City. Its copper pinnacle rises above the skyline, basking in the sunlight as the greatest ongoing achievement of gnome-kind. 18,643 employees, 6021 field agents, and 413 media experts collaborate to research, collect, and organize 1.5 billion gnomes' knowledge and experience.   For nearly 200 years, the FAF has been a perfect and ever-growing resource for every guild within society. From medical advances and discoveries to the ongoing census of the population, to the public schematics of cybernetics cell replacement, the FAF provides the information.  

In The Beginning

Nobody likes to talk about it, but we didn’t always live in high-rise, fancy buildings like we do now. We washed up on the shores like some revolutionary fish, struggling to enter a new environment. That’s when there were trees. When there were wild animals, and an actual forest on the islands.   That’s when we learned to build.   Refusing to die from cold and malnutrition, an old gnome named Lester Digglefromp established an independent camp. Watching the struggles of his people, he decided it was important to log and record all the advancements we would make. Fleeing from Andilain, he abandoned his book shop and previous life for the unknown risks of freedom.   Humans trained him as a bookkeeper, and he worked for them. He knew facts, figures, mathematics, which were all complemented by an insatiable desire for knowledge. That, coupled with the loyalty for his own race, made him the perfect father of the FAF. Hauling all the supplies he could fit into his lifeboat, he cast himself upon the open waters of the sea.  

Transition of the Records

For 51 years, Lester continued to record and organize the life story of the gnomes. It was this example that inspired future generations to gather the written works of Lester and hundreds of other gnome historians. They transformed their words into digital format to provide access to every curious mind, ensuring protection.   As his hands gave way to arthritis, Digglefromp trained a new generation of curious minds. Those dedicated to discovering the secrets of everything. That, my dear friend, is why the FAF is as powerful and influential as it is.   They want to know…everything.
Governmental, Department
Notable Members
They won't admit it, but the admin-asses of the FAF owe their current state to the FISHIS like myself. Those willing to work the unconventional jobs to make sure the public enjoys the taste of information.   It wasn't so long ago, that the public hated the FAF. There was too much speculation, and unverified stories. All it took was one leak and the corporation gain the reputation for lying. They lost the publics trust.   ...and it was people like Felix Umbermain, Saitman Tennor, Valerie Haltertop and myself who doscovered the spectactular truths of our world, for public consumption.   You're welcome, greedy bastards.

Congrats on getting the Summer Camp train rolling!

Now it's time for the awkward wave.

Ohhhh, I hope this doesn't jinx me, LOL! Such good things are happening in my life right now, and for the first time, I'm having to balance Summer Camp with even bigger goals...   Still hopeful. The prompts will all have to be just beyond stubs for now -- but they will have content -- then I can dedicate more appropriate amounts of time after SC is over.   GOOD news is that I'm starting to send people to WA from Life of Fiction so they can take the stories being written there and connect them to my world here.   So exciting!!   How is your SC going, Chris??

I'm chugging right along. Sitting pretty at 23 prompts right now. This is the slowest time of the year at my jobby job, which is probably why Summer Camp is such a favorite of mine.

Now it's time for the awkward wave.

As someone who has worked as an archivist and in records management, I absolutely adore this. You always manage to bring your gnomish touch to the most mundane Jaime and I love it!
