Monsters Of Oflor
The Silver Arrow Syndicate
The Silver Arrow Syndicate a order of monster hunters that have been around since the beginning of time. The Syndicate was founded long ago by Sagar Tracer and his wife Miriella Scotch they came from a small village that over the years has been lost with time from wars and conflicts. the village was preyed upon every night by werewolves led by a massive monster they called the king wolf. knowing only by defeating him they rest of the wolf’s leave the village the two set of to kill him. they melted down there rings made of silver to make one silver tipped arrow. they had the blacksmith of the village make it his name was Gafraes Calbridge a dwarf who had lost his wife to the wolves and almost lost his son. So during the day they set up a trap outside the wolves den and waited for night to fall. when it finally grew dark and the moon started to shine bright the wolves appeared out the cave followed the wolf king a hulking beast that stood taller than a bear. now with the king wolf exposed they sprung their trap Miriella dropped nets from the trees catching three of the werewolves Sagar shot an arrow cutting a string unleashing an avalanche closing the dens opening killing two more wolfs. Miriella then used a fire arrow to catch the net on fire causing the three wolves she caught to panic and light on fire. with all that commotion distracting the king wolf Sagar reached for his silver arrow and shot it at the wolf but then it wouldn’t be that easy for the king wolf dodged the arrow and the arrow snapped has it hit the ground. Sagar jumped from his hiding spot and picked up the silver tip of the arrow and looked the king wolf in its eyes. He knew only one of them was making it out alive. he darted forward screaming at the wolf then it too started toward Sagar he lept in the air and with a swift strike he cut the king wolf across its face. the wolf let out a scream of pain that no man could make. it looked at sagar and jumped at him the wolf landed on top of Sagar and as it went to sink its teeth into his neck he drove the tip of the arrow into the heart of the beast killing it almost instantly. they did it they protected their village against the king wolf. From there on out they hunted monsters and trained others in the way of monster hunting and soon when their numbers grew large enough they formed the Silver Arrow Syndicate [i’m going to abbreviate it SAS] keeping the people of Oflor save for a price because let’s be honest monster hunting isn’t cheap. A few years after the SAS was established they started building the a great keep to train and house SAS members. They now have forts and taverns all over Oflor but their main base of operations is Calbridge keep located on lake Qilk in the center of Oflor. The SAS success of staying around for so long is their neutral stance on all non monster related conflicts in Oflor over the years avoiding wars, and revolts and anything else they only fight monsters and get paid. How to become a member of the SAS One is that a member finds you as a young orphan or two you parents are members and they give you to the order. Members must enter before the age of 8 to learn all the skill to be a successful monster hunter. The training lasts at least 12 years depending on how quick you can learn. To leave the order there are only three ways. One, completing 150 contracts of at least class 3 or higher number two, giving your child to the order or finding a orphan to replace yourself and lastly number three, the most common way death. If any member tries to leave without doing one of these they are consider a trader and will be hunted down and either killed or brought back to Calbridge for a trial and punishment. Members of the SAS are ranked based upon their skills and field success. The order of the rankings go from student, rookie, seasoned, advanced, veteran, master. Rookie being the lowest and most work in teams master being the highest and can work alone. Students are not allowed to take contracts only allowed to be brought along by members of the SAS. The contracts are also ranked and only certain ranks can take certain contracts. there are four classes of contracts. level 1 which any member can take and consist of a single medium humanoid monster or smaller monster or a simple curse. level 2 which seasoned and higher ranked can take these consist of 2-3 monsters of medium size, a haunting, ghosts or something along that line. Level 3 seasoned and up can take these contracts consists major Curse’s, Solo Large monsters, and witches. Level 4 can be taken by advanced members and veterans these contracts consist of groups of large monsters or solo huge monster creatures. finally level 5 the most rare contracts and also the most dangerous they have gargantuan monsters, lich’s, vampire lords, and many others these missions are considered so dangerous that veteran members must take a team of at least advanced ranked members. When you complete a contract the SAS takes 20% of the reward money. So they can keep the order running and keep all the buildings under the order in working shape and training new recruits. Then the reward can be split evenly among the members who completed the contract for there personal use may that be better gear or partying.
the SAS has been noted for killing some of the most famous monsters and keeping everyone of oflor save.
