We are the Bomb Squad!
Diffusing Bombs by bombing them with BIGGER bombs since before the cavemen!
A Guild of heroes and heroines who have a passion for bombing! Drinking booze and bombing things are two things that every guild member lives (and quite often dies) for! Historically, the art of bombing was discovered by ancient alchemists who were trying to dazzle everyone by showing off their might and knowledge of chemistry. Slowly, these alchemists, realizing that bombs were extremely powerful and fun to use, decided to form a guild that would preserve the knowledge and the art of bomb making. This goal eventually expanded to using bombs to punish people the guild disliked, while preserving those the guild did. Unfortunately, for every non-bomber, the guild is very fickle in these matters, and most denizens of Godville have been bombed on one occasion or another.
The Bomb Squad has operated with the simple motto 'Build, Bomb, Repeat!' ever since its inception. It clearly states the mission of every guild member and the standard that they must live up to, just as their ancestors did. However, it is believed that among the current members only Arestavi is the direct descendant of the original alchemists who formed the guild. But, after finishing all paperwork for the guild's official registration, she went for a quest of self discovery, and also to find the mythical bomb reactant with the most devastating power human eyes has ever (or rather, never) witnessed, the very reactant that caused dinosaurs shrink in fear, turning them into lizards we know today. No one has ever seen or heard of her ever since. Some say that she has been hiding from the Godville Administrator for misconducted experiments and destruction of Admin property, but others think that her god is simply too caught up in the alternate universe called the Real World. But it is widely believed in the guild that when Arestavi returns, all of Godville will once again bow down to the might of Bomb Squad.
Joining the Bomb Squad
While it seems like joining the Bomb Squad is the smartest option for any hero, it rarely happens. Only a few enlightened ones find out about this ancient guild and take it upon themselves to join through a quest. But, other heroes can also be forcibly "enlightened" by their gods to join the guild. When the God gives the command Join "Bomb Squad" guild, the hero may take it upon him/herself to join this illustrious guild. Some hard headed ones may need repeated commands to persuade them to start the quest, so keep at it. Gods are advised to give this command when hero has completed his previous quest and has not yet started a new one. Heroes generally have clouded judgement, however, and may foolishly try to join a different guild after JUST entering the Bomb Squad. At such times the Gods can easily remove the cloud of doubt on hero by asking them to Cancel quest. If the hero doesn't listen in the first attempt, they may listen on successive attempts.
The guild headquarters is a labyrinth of underground mines riddled with live explosives called the Veins of the Bomb. Only members of the guild possess the knowledge and skill required to navigate these mines safely... most of the time anyway. People without the expertise often find themselves either lost forever in these dark passages or blown into smithereens by one of the many thousand bombs surrounding the headquarters and protecting its secrets. The prophets of Bomb Squad have an entire vein of the mine to themselves, completely personalized to suit their tastes. The higher the rank of guild members, the larger the portion of the mine they own. In fact, the initiation ceremony for new members consists of blowing up a small new passage where they can hide their earned, looted, or sometimes flat out stolen treasures. The passage is also a good place to hide their past mistakes, if they need to. Legend has it that Arestavi still sometimes roams the headquarters, unbeknownst to other guild members, in the deep secret passages while in search of the mythical bomb reactant.
At present, the guild is led by twelve ancient alchemists and under their mighty influence, Bomb Squad plans to quickly expand their presence in Godville. With its members active almost all the time, Guild councils tend to be very interactive and congenial. This guild has recently become very active, some say it is because we sense the time for our domination is near...but only time will tell on that side. This guild generally is humane and does not distinguish between evil and good aligned heroes, instead being a sanctuary for heroes with a passion for bombing. That's right we are the Bomb!! Well, not literally... We mean it's not like we will explode... will we?!?!
