"Spanning from the Northern Wilds, to the Southern Coasts, the Guild manages to find adventure against all matter of danger. Be it against Corsairs, Chaos or Legendary Beasts, with Steam-Powered Bronze & Rifles of Iron they shall vanquish their foes before a gear spins full circle"
The Oil lamp was squeaking as it blew on its rusted Hinge, the Northern winds showing off their harsh Nature. The Band of Corsairs huddled around the centre of the deck, rubbing their hands together while the condensation of their shivering breaths were ushered out into the air. One of the Crew stuttered as he spoke up, urging the others to tell stories of Myths and Ghosts. Reluctantly, they all began to whisper and murmur amongst themselves.
"So..who's gonna be first to tell their Tale?"
They looked around still sheepishly, until one of the newer recruits raised his hand to offer his story. The crew hunched in as they gathered closer, anticipating a good tale of horror. The Scrub began to weave his words,
"I've heard of a certain group...They were originally of the Skyguard and went Rogue. They've been chasing down Pirates and bringing them to their graves..." The Crew were silent, and began laughing to themselves shortly after. The Recruit looked down as a Shadow arose behind him and shoved him on the back. The Captain laughed ferociously as he chanted how no Skyguard Dog would bring him out of the Sky. He got the rest of his crew apart from the recruit to join in his humourous shout. The commotion on the deck was so loud and full of energy, no-one noticed the lamp had blown out, leaving just a gaslamp in the centre of the group alight.
Amongst the clouds and Night Sky, nothing could be seen nor heard, yet something was approaching fast and silently. If any could listen in utter silence, they would make out the slight flap of altering sails and the minimal creak in ancient wood. The mysterious vessel pulled alongside the Corsair ship as it began its attack. No cannons were fired, no guns were shot. Only footsteps of two individuals planted onto the enemy deck. The light of the central lantern glinting off Bronze that they bore. As the crew kept on jaunting quite Jolly, the two figures approached.
The Captain raised his Mug up high for a toast. The Crew did so in rejoice of their own pride, as the Captain began to Lament.
"Long Live the Corsairs of the Northern Skie-"
The Captain's speech was cut off as his glass shattered, and a line of smoke arose out of a barrel to his side. The Crew were paralysed in fear and amazement. They suddenly developed angry expressions as they drew their weapons along with their stunned leader. As they got up, all they saw was a flash of Steel and a spray of red as their Captain dropped dead. The Corsairs all looked in horror. As they began to drop their weapons, the mysterious figures entered into plain sight, where-upon the one dressed with Trench Coat and Rifle cleared his throat before addressing the amazed men.
"Let me ask you one Question. Do you fear me?"
One of the Crewman began to nod as a rifle was aimed at his chest. Before he had time to react, a round had gone into his heart. Another life marked forever with shock. The rest of the men drew their swords and charged the Armed figure, as the second mysterious figure stepped swiftly forward dispatching them in a flurry of strikes and blows. As the two estranged men turned to leave the Ghost ship, the recruit poked his head from behind a Mast, and said
"I-Im not afraid of you".
The Trench Coated Man walked toward him, while holstering the rifle, and knelt in toward him, simply ushering,
He then went on to Introduce himself.
"We, young sir, are a Band of Vigilante Justice, using our Knowledge of Steampunk and any equipment based around that concept to dispatch all evils that we see are better off dead than causing chaos around this world. You can call me Skurge, and my associate, you may call him Caspian. We are the last thing a Sky Pirate sees, and the first glint of hope on any sunrise. We are Steampunk Lore. You want to sign up?"
Who We Are / Focus We are a guild which revolves around the style of Victorian/Industrial Style named Steampunk. This includes Steam Automatons, A bountiful amount of airships, and more Bronzed Mechanical Flourishes to equipment than you can shake a Wrench at. This leads us to centralise around the Skyguard's theme since they seem to cover quite a few of these bases. But we dont limit ourselves to this, and adopt anything with a certain Mechanical & Rustic flare to it.
We seek to aid anyone with an equally strong passion for Steampunk and any who wish to pursue this style further. If you're still reading and this has gotten your cogs turning, then keep on reading!
