Guild Alchemica

The Guild Alchemica was founded in fear...fear of discovery in a time when science and technology were ananthema. Created to protect the inventions and advancements made by it's members, the Guild seeks to better ourselves and our allies through science, and to visit swift and lasting destruction on those who would threaten our work.

The Guild is broken down into Forges, a semi-independent entity within the Guild structure, with it's own membership, military and territory in an allied Realm. The Adeptus serves as researchers and artisans while the Legios protect Guild holdings and members. Each Forge has it's own Legio, and in some cases several, and while all Guild Members are equal and united, it is not unheard of for disputes to arise, especially between the war-geared Legios.

All Guild Alchemica members must have a character background including an origin as an apothocary, alchemist, shaman, priest, golem, homunculus, construct, etc. (If science and invention are key aspects of your character we can probably make it work.) The Guild is dedicated to providing members with oppurtunites and help in crafts such as painting, sewing, foamsmithing, caligraphy, researching history and anything else you might want to pursue. (We will learn it together if we have to!)
