The mallet can be a cudgel to the stout-hearted. -- St Cuthbert when ambushed while working.
The Club is not the official name, which is constantly in dispute. The Church of St. Cuthbert in Sasserine is one suggestion, the Consorted Guilds is another. As the affiliation was never officially named, The Club is an interim name, but it has stuck a note in the imagination of members and is likely to stay.
Background: A working mans affiliation centered on the Cudgel district of Sasserine, The Club exists to represent the member's interests. It is both a consortium of guilds, a laymen's order in the church of St Cuthbert, and a worker's union.
Symbol: A mallet. Either worn as a brooch, often combined with guild insignia, or brandished as a weapon.
Members: The club favors craftsmen and skilled adventurers class. The club is divided between rich and poor members, and exists as a venue to sort out such differences. At the same time, they are all united in their work ethic, resentment of taxes, and suspicion of any authority not based on hard work. The Club is quick to unit against any external threat, be it a challenge from another group within Sasserine (in which case The Club closes ranks) or an external threat (in which case it seeks unity with the rest of the city).
Scale: 6 City
