THE FALCONER'S GUILD
Damn mysterious lot, the Falconers. You ask a common man in the marketplace about them, I’ll wager you see a blank face and little else. I only know what little I do by keeping my ear to the streets, like. Word is they were formed from a bunch of mercenaries, old scouts from the armies marching in the Century Wars.
One thing’s for sure though – they’ve made real money hiring themselves out to the nobility. Their great birds are a popular accompaniment in bloodsport hunting, and fiercely fashionable amongst the aristocracy. That was their first foot on the ladder, and they soon banded together to form a team. Don’t blame ‘em. Fair to say that life on the pitch has to be a lot better than living at the whim of some inbred lordling.
No one really knows what the connection is between the Falconers and Hunters, but rumour down the pub is that Devana and Theron have been seen huddled together, talking until the early hours, like. If you asked me to put money on it, I’d wager they have a past at the very least. ‘Course, I’ve never been one to gossip, have I?

History of the
The Falconers tend to be very fragile, trading toughness for speed and manoeuvrability, so choosing exactly the right moment to attack is key. While the Falconers lean towards getting take outs, aided by their strong ranged damage capability, their raw speed allows them to keep a potent goal threat on the pitch.
The Falconers are a Minor Guild tied to the Hunter’s Guild by strange moonlit pacts and oaths. As a Minor Guild, some of their players can crossover and play for the Hunters too. The Falconers are a Guild with a focus on ranged damage, using their magnificent hunting birds to strike at their opponents from a distance. They have many strong abilities to attack from range and melt away into the forests, but you must beware.
The opposing team must fight under a sky darkened by their deadly wings, constantly harassed and buffeted, never given a second’s rest. The Falconers are strong in the mid-late game, they like a bit of time to chip their opponent’s health down from range before committing.
The Falconers are a team for coaches who like keeping their foes at arm’s length and dictating the flow and speed of the game. They’re also the team for anyone who loves attacking their enemies with giant birds of prey!
