Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #170

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #170 

June 19th, 2023 

  • Number: 170 

  • Name: Regions, Capitals and Notable Leaders of the Wastelands: Guild Watch 

  • Location: Eastern Wastelands on the Sea of Hethichol south of the Danthas River delta. 

  • Population (approx.): 40,000 to 50,000 inhabitants over approximately 4,000 square miles 

  • Brief: With the success or at least survival of the Guild output at Stormwatch (#65) other members of the Guild Collegium have made the lengthy journey from Carasta to the Wastelands. The westernmost output of the region is currently Firewatch (#138), the Arcane Guild chantry on the eastern sands of the Mu Onno Desert. The Traveller’s Guild has repaired existing roads or blazed new trails through the area, to the Danthas River delta (skirting The Silent Colossus (#33)) in the north and to remnant settlements of the Empire to the south. Members of the Builders and Merchants Guilds have followed, establishing caravansaries and attracting semi-nomadic locals to new settlements. Minh Gibson, Master Traveller, has led this current expansion, ostensibly being treated by the other Guild Masters present as the leader and voice of Guild interests. He plans to send embassies to attempt to establish relations with the Saut Tribe to the west and the Mataf Tribe of Taodeas to the north. Both are aware of the Guild’s expansion but have yet to react in any specific way. Minh, and the Travellers, are headquartered in an old revitalized Ta’arnan fishing settlement now known as Seawatch (population: 510). 

  • Geography: Guild Watch, as the Cartographers Guild have currently named the area, covers about 4,000 square miles between the Mu Onno Desert to the west, the Danthas River to the north, Sea of Hethichol to the east and an area known as the Broken Flats to the south (a jumble of broken rock and ravines difficult to traverse). There are the three main Watches (described above) along with two Outposts, manned by the Mercenaries Guild, to the north and one to the south.
