The Wayfarer's

Some go from riches to ruin, but a Wayfarer goes from ruins to riches.
— Hamish Flanagan
  Motto: Live fearlessly. Fight valiantly. Die honorably.


  • Call:May your road be endless.
  • Response:And yield countless wonders untold.
  Core Beliefs
  • There are far too many places and creatures still undiscovered to sit idly by twiddling thumbs.
  • High Risk, High Reward
  • Nothing is lost forever.



Kade Herwin is recognized as the founding father of the Wayfarer's. Though he had never been on an adventure himself, his passion for discovery has yielded the greatest catalogue of historical artifacts and archeological discoveries in the world. Afflicted with agoraphobia, Kade Herwin was unable to leave his home and spent much of his time reading books. As such, he compiled a list of treasures and mysteries and began recruiting people to travel to these locations and bring back tales of their experience. An avid artist, Kade would create large paintings and sculptures that represented the stories he heard. These works of art now line the walls of The Way Hall, documenting the founding years of the Wayfarer's. Though Kade Herwin is long gone, the guild and The Way Hall remain. The Way Hall resides in the Capital City of Sixpoints, in the Fountain Dominion.




The Starbreaker

The Starbreaker is the title bestowed upon the Leader of the organization. The term Starbreaker refers to the legendary Battle-axe passed on from one Starbreaker to the next. Residing in The Way Hall, Starbreaker Hamish Flanagan spends much of his time managing the The Children of Peruse. The Children of Peruse are a brethren of researchers who search through scrolls and annals looking for lost worlds and treasures. Their findings lead to many of the Guilds important quests. Flanagan, an ember haired half-orc has held the Starbreaker title for the last 6 years. He was voted Starbreaker after the death of Corinne Claymire


The Court of Heron's

The discoveries of the Wayfarer's have behooved the civilizations across Volkyr equally. As such, they have representatives in every major city and most villages and towns across the continent. Though it is easy enough to join The Wayfarer's, many die before they reach the level of Nighthawk. Those who become Master's and begin to feel the weight of mortality, often join the Court of Heron's and become the leader of their local chapter. With locations across the Volkyr, most outposts are operated by their local Heron. Though these outposts ultimately answer to The Starbreaker, the Council of Heron's are trusted to handle the daily operations of the Wayfarer's they command.

Wayfarer's Golden Spyglass

Wonderous Item, Common

Looking through this spyglass allows you to see about 3 miles in any direction on a clear day, or until the point where trees, hills, or other obstructions block your view. Rain cuts the visibility down to 1.5 miles, and fog can cut it down to between 500-600 feet. Once per long rest you can roll a D20 when you look through this spyglass. Upon rolling a 20, the spyglass allows you to see through trees, hills, and all other obstructions blocking your view. This spyglass can not look through magically secured locations and items. This effect only lasts until you remove your eye from the spyglass.

If you use this Spyglass to view something within 120 feet of you, you do so at disadvantage.


Contracts and Requisitions


There are number of ways to earn renown within the guild and climb the ranks of the Wayfarer's. Early contracts include dispatching beasts and monsters for various group and uncovering lost treasures for those with the coin to pay. When a Wayfarer has reached the level of Road Runner, they will be able to speak with the Guild Cartographer and purchase maps to treasures unknown. Depending on the size of the outpost, there may be one person who handles all the contracts or there may be multiple people who are handing out different types of contracts.



A Guild Hall Steward can be found at most Guild locations and are often found near the main entrance to the Hall. They typically offer Renown Milestone rewards, as well direct players toward guild contracts. On rare occasion, they have been known to have contracts to fill as well. These contracts are normally Escort jobs requiring the wayfarer to accompany a caravan from one location to another.


Most contracts can be split into a three categories:


Dispatch and Rescue

The Beast Master will usually have contracts for any Dispatch and Rescue missions the guild may have. Small towns, villages, and other communities may be getting harassed by an unknown beast or monster. It is the responsibility of the Wayfarer's to help rescue the town and dispatch the creature in question. These contracts may take place in a city where the creature hunts or the creature may live on the outskirts of the city and needs to be tracked down before it can be killed. It is not uncommon for these beasts to reside in dungeons, abandoned towers, sewers, cave systems and any other rarely visited location. Though these contracts pay well enough, most of the reward comes from harvesting the beast or monster upon defeat. Many across the Volkyr will pay top dollar for a vial of rare venom, or teeth and claws from a legendary beast or monstrosity.


Retrieval and Acquisition

The most common and sought after contracts can be found with the Acquisitions Officer. These contracts are often funded by wealthy benefactors looking for lost family treasure or trying to find a missing friend or relative. These contracts usually pay very well.


Lost Cities and Ruins

When you have reached the rank of Road Runner, and proven yourself capable of the unexpected, you can speak with the Guild Cartographer about some of their more rare and unknown maps the guild has acquired. Because of the nature of these maps and how they were obtained, some have been well studied while others are a complete mystery. As such, the range of information made available to a Wayfarer upon purchase of one of these maps, varies greatly. The Cartographer may know what type of beast you will have to contend with, or they may know nothing at all. This is also true for the treasure the map may lead to. Though there is fame and renown to be had by making archeological discoveries, most money lies in finding treasure. These contracts should be viewed as a gamble for both the coin purse and reputation



Gaining Renown: Completing contracts will earn you a certain level of renown within the guild. The more contracts that you complete, the more renown you will receive. It is imperative that quests be completed with honor and minimal destruction to a communities property or the expected renown you would have received will be reduced.

Losing Renown: Losing renown is quite hard to do in the Wayfarer's guild. That being said, it is ill-advised to betray or abandon another Wayfarer in battle and ultimately leaving them to their doom. If any within the guild should learn that you can not be counted on to defend your comrades, you will likely lose positive guild renown. In extreme situations, some may even refuse to work with you all together.
