Guild of the unblinking eye

By:

An Order created in ancient times built upon the concept of “Knowledge is Power”. They are the ultimate power.

An order created from ancient times, known by few, but for the few who know of it, it is a valuable resource. The guild consist of two main sections, the unblinking eye, and the unforgetting mind.

The unblinking eye consists of rogues, assassins and the like, from all over the world. Their objective is to spy on every major happening and most minor happenings, and gather information, sending it to the nexus of the guild.

The unforgetting mind sect of this guild, consists of scholars, scribes, librarians and magicians, who categorise and store this information in a vast library.

This order has been going from basically the beginning of written history, and they pride themselves on having the most knowledge of any place in the world.

The few lucky people who know of this guild can enter the halls and study information… for a price. People are not allowed to remove a chronical from the library, and the books are magically altered to not be able to pass outside the doors. Those who study within the halls are watched by two guards at all times.

This guild contains many pieces of information an adventurer may want to know - the weakness of a forgotten evil which has re-arisen. Spells and alchemist mixes unknown to the new world, the art of forging metals into new, stronger alloys with innate magical properties, and many more.

Cost for entering the stores alter from person to person, to situation, to purpose to need. It can range from monetary compensation, to quests performed, to limbs removed Anything is possible.

Too Uber of a historical illuminati even for me. They know all the true knowledge. No sense of origin or purpose. They support themselves by extorting others into doing their bidding if they have the knowledge.

I need more.

Yes, it's a little uber, and a little short, but it's a good solid start, and I love the name. While it might be too powerful and all-knowing for some, for others, it might be good to have an organization like this that they can turn to for their needs. It's a little unrealistic, but many times less complexity equals more fun. That being said, it is short for a submission, and more detail WOULD be nice.

What a score of 3 says. Written well but probably leaning a bit towards the mundane in terms of content.

This is start of something, I would make them a bit less reliable - more real. Perhaps they started as the secret police of some great empire, and outlived that empire.

In a crowded marketplace, a man is standing on a soapbox, orating. Some of the crowd are cheering, some hissing, some standing around saying "I can't hear a bl**dy word he's saying". It's a hustings for an election. The PCs can either leave, or stay and listen. If they do the latter, then they can vote too, and they might get quite involved in the cheering. Depending on who wins they might get quite involved in the post-election brawl too...

There are numerous possibilities with this encounter: the PCs might end up talking to one of the nervous candidates before their speech, and offer encouragement and support. Of course this candidate may well turn out to be someone with outspokenly unorthodox views, and the crowd don't take kindly to s/his supporters. Or maybe the seemingly innocuous candidate turns out to be a complete racist, and the PCs wander off embarrassedly, pretending they weren't talking to this person five minutes ago.
