Thunderscape: The Cogswheel Irregulars
Elders of Mekanus
A consortium known as the Elders of Mekanus has resolved to address the suffering in Urbana. Comprised of merchants, noble patrons, and retired soldiers, they have donated their time and energy toward improving the condition of Urbana’s cities – Mekanus in particular. Their identities remain largely anonymous for fear of those who prefer Urbana’s current, crime-ridden state (numerous criminal syndicates operate openly in its cities). Only a handful of brave souls act as the Elders’ public liaisons. Providing better training, equipment, and ethical oversight for the militia is the first step – but that is a long-term solution. The people suffer now, and something must be done.
