The Artisans Guild tends to encourage pacifist members, folk keen on intelligent gradual growth of skills and resources. It tries to remain separate from city or wider guild conflict where possible.
The Artisans Guild was born in Parrius under the guidance of Procyon the Bringer of Light as a third loremaster guild to offset the polarizing of the Mercinaen Alchemists and the Thakrian Loremasters. The guild grew wealthy and thrived under Procyon's leadership and continued to prosper under subsequent guildmasters. Its most influential time though is here in the present under the tireless mastery of Catt the guild is wealthy, well-stocked, filled to overflowing with resources and most importantly in the modern climate, boasts an army to match most cities.
The Artisans are neutral by default and retain only loose ties with their home city. The guild's strengths are good planning, firm resolve and gradual expansion of resources. Since its inception the Artisans have remained purposeful in their building work and the guild remains one of the most powerful, richest and most influential.

No matter your path, life with other loyal Artisans would make a perfect home for you if being skilled in the art of creation appeals to you. You will be sought after by your fellow citizens and allies to provide powerful runes, embed items with magical properties, mix elixirs ranging from vital health to potent poison, and to forge strong armour and weapons.
You may choose to live your life in battle using your staves and knowledge of runes and potions to your advantage against foes. Eventually perhaps you may become a Skymaster who can harness the great power of the wind and storm to help you.
Artisans are among the most mobile of the land, able to fly or to portal easily to any location. They are equipped with numerous lorestave and lorerobe abilities for protection and attack.
