The Vicious Isles
The Vicious Isles are a very dangerous place and the Brutal Isle's inhabitants would overrun Redmark if the Draecite Gem didn't protect it. However, Redmark gets most of its income from protecting ships passing through The Cheerless Sea and needs to know what threats are on the islands.
The Redmark Rangers are Redmark's eyes and ears on land. Their job is to keep track of threats to Redmark's business and report those threats to the Redmark Army and Navy. It's a very dangerous job, the rangers work alone deep in dangerous territory. They do not engage in combat and they are not allowed to assist anyone foolish enough to venture out into the wilds.
Rangers are also allowed to hunt for meat and skins near the city, many of the do so to increase their wages. The average ranger serves for five years, most never live to serve ten years.
