Mercy is a large, independent guild which can be contracted by towns, cities, and independent people. Their mission is to cut-down the ever present numbers of undead now roaming Eyeasear. They also collaborate heavily with Undeath Researchers in order to learn the best techniques and weapons for putting down the various types of undead.
The organization founded about 85 years ago by a seasoned and inspired paladin, Anytus Sympos who still leads as the High General of Mercy. Anytus is extremely well known and has political influence in many cities. This is partly due to him delivering a very necessary service, but also because he naturally carries an air of divine authority and bravery.
It isn’t rare that member of Mercy (usually referred to an Anytian) will have a tale of willingly following their High General into a maw.
