The Seekers are a group dedicated to knowledge. Their pursit of knowledge brings them into contact with nearly every facet of spacefaring life, and their activites are viewed with a combination of suspicion and apprecation.
Symbol: An eye with a sword behind it. In more feudal spheres, the Seekers are known as the Company of the Orb and Sword.
Goals: The Seekers are dedicated to knowledge and try to stay on good terms with the sages in space and on the ground. They look for answers to questions such as what is the home planet of the Giff, how the Arcane fill their orders so quickly, and why crystal shells are spherical. Often, these arguements bog down for lack of evidence, but the Seekers look to adventuers to gather interesting information, which they then make available to sages and seers seeking advice.
Thus, the Seekers are information brokers, but they do not deal in rumor trivial gossip.
Headquarters: Compendium, a planet of crystal sphere filled with the knowledge the Seekers have gathered. The Seekers admit or deny the existence of Compendium depending on the situation, but no non-Seeker has yet found it. CGR1
