The Red Hand
The Explorer's League
A little more than a decade ago, a group of Academy graduates came up with the Explorer’s Guild: a competition pitting adventuring teams one against another in a variety of challenges published throughout Lyria in a number of formats and even magically broadcast to a few select fans. Finally, an elite few are welcome to the inner sanctum of the League to watch the events “live”.
It isn’t quite clear what the organizers get out of it, but there is no doubt that is has captured the imagination of large swaths of Lyrians; families have been broken apart by arguments over whether or not the matches are scripted or not or over party affiliations.
