Sackcloth & Ashes
The Tower Authority
This is a specific guild tasked with maintaining a record of everything that happens relating to The Etemenanki. This includes everyone that enters and leaves as well as records of Adventurers’ encounters within the Tower. They are also the first line of defense against rogue creatures that attempt to escape from the Tower’s confines. Additionally, they “pay” bounties for confirmed kills of dangerous beasts within the Tower. However, the bounties are paid out as credits that may only be used at approved vendors throughout the city. Unneeded raw materials or finished goods extracted from the Tower by Adventurers may also be exchanged with the Tower Authority for credits, however this is not required, so Adventurers may choose to keep anything they can bring back out of the Tower with them.
To ensure that the guild is able to focus on their task and protect the city effectively, The Council has decreed that 10% of earnings from all bounties are given to the Tower Authority as a tax, making the Tower Authority easily the most powerful guild in the city. Any material items that Adventurers choose to keep become the property of those adventurers once they leave the Tower, and they are not subject to the tax.
