The Hunters was an initiative put in place after the the Orc War began. It took people who showed an interest in being a part of Goldvales military defense against the Orcs and any other threat to the safety of Goldvale.
Those that met the standards were set to guard the wall, patrol the streets and work the general policing jobs. Those that exceeded to a higher level of distinction became the Hunters. A force whos job it was to scout further into the forest for signs of an imminent orc raid, or search the ruins of their ancestors for items and equipment to aid Goldvale it it’s struggles.
