Corruption in the City of Brass
Order of the Ebon Hand
The Order of the Ebon Hand is a powerful society of magi. They are dedicated to the evolution of arcane magic in all it’s forms. They actively recruit wizards, sorcerers, summoners, witches, warlocks, magisters, bards, alchemists, artificers, and anyone else who can demonstrate any kind of arcane aptitude.
Dues to the order are 20gp a month. This relatively steep cost pays for their large, if unmanaged, arcane library. If you fail to pay dues for 3 months, you are removed from the guild until you can pay all back-dues and the current month’s allotment.
They happily rent rooms to guild members as well as laboratory space for experimentation and research.
