Zane: Age of Enlightenment
To those from a different time and place, the Varunal Expeditionaries (VEx) may seem like an unlikely hybrid of the National Guard, Blackwater Private Security and the Michigan Militia.
The Expeditionaries, based out of Sedna’s capital city Varuna, are volunteer adventurers sponsored by House Indoril. They receive a small stipend each month – not enough to live on, but helpful nonetheless. In return, the Expeditionaries take on various tasks in the name of the house to further their fame and support. Though they do mercernary-like work, they are not generally for hire. Should their sponsor house eventually fail to claim the throne, the Expeditionaries will have to choose whether to disband or offer their services to the new regent.
