Lorethew Mentor Society
The Mentors are an official organization of players who volunteer their time to help new players get started and learn the intricacies of the game. They also frequently run their own roleplaying events.
- The Lorethew Mentor Society headquarters is located at Jadewater Mansion, in the Crossing.
- The Society maintains another property, Aldamus House, within the city of Riverhaven.
DIR MENTORS can be used to find either location.
The list of former, lost, and retired members for whom the Lorethew Mentor Society are extremely grateful is available at Lorethew Mentor Society/Former members.
In the beginning, the lands were explored by a small group of brave adventurers who forged their way through trial, error and a smattering of luck. Few in number, these adventurers made up for their lack of population by banding together and helping each other to discover what these wild, untamed lands had to offer. Teamwork was the key, and everyone worked toward the common goals of survival and discovery.
As the population of the lands grew, many of the early adventurers began to take on apprentices to pass on their knowledge and insure that the old ways would not die.
But then came a huge population explosion, and hundreds of new adventurers came to make their fortunes in Elanthia. Many of the early adventurers, some referred to as Elders in respect of their experience and knowledge of the lands, despaired at the huge influx of newcomers. The Elders feared that the old ways would be lost forever.
An Elothean Elder named Aldamus Llearyn had a vision. Aldamus began to gather together the Elders and formed a Society of Mentors, who would work together with the newcomers to preserve the old ways and dispense valuable knowledge and assistance. With the political backing of the Lorethew, and the financial backing of the Jadewater family, Aldamus set about making his vision a reality.
