A Chronicle of the Dragon Guard
The local Mage’s Guild. The building is located in the village with the paved over ground.
This is the most likely faction to get members of the team. They appear to do a great many adventures to other worlds and appropriate items of great power and then place them in the vault below the building.
The Master of this place, who’s name I am also not remembering mentioned that, sometimes missions happen to remove and evil artifact from a world and some times a power artifact is removed from a world before it can be seized by the forces of evil. Either way these items are stored away in the vault beneath the guild. Apparently this vault is in and of itself a dangerous place, the guardians are quite formidable. The deeper you go in the vaults the more dangerous it gets.
