Fortuna - Magitek City of Crossroads
The Aulic Coalition
The Aulic Coalition is Fortuna’s premier adventuring guild; invitations are offered only to the city’s most elite and wealthy citizens, and even those are thoroughly vetted. The society’s membership is secret. Only its grandmaster has a full record of initiates, and members wear a mask when working in public.
The Aulic Coalition has been a thorn in the side of the ARC since its founding. Coalition agents interfere incessantly in ARC investigations and often snipe cases before they are brought to government attention. The adventuring guild also owns Fortuna’s only two airships, which are made available to members on important business. Similarly, they possess the city’s largest collection of magical items, kept in hoards across the vast metropolis and shared only with their members—a notable matter of contention with the ARC.
