  • Atvoria is a place where luck can make or break someone. This is largely facilitated by the Gambler’s Guild. These rich moguls have an iron grip on the nation's gambling industry. The Hands of Gold, Masters of the Gambler’s Guild, operate establishments to facilitate betting on everything from horse racing, fisticuffs, games of chance, or even drinking contests. With their wealth comes great power, but membership in the Guild comes at a price. At any time, any person can challenge a Guild member in any gambling venture. With their history of wealth, challenges can become frequent.

    Hands of Gold participate in standard gambling like any other. However, a ‘Golden Rule’ pervades these games of chance: "Cheating is allowed as long as nobody catches you". Hands of Gold are able to amass their wealth by being the best cheaters in A'therysMagic, sleight of hand, and deception are valued characteristics that keep the Gambler’s Guild running. The Hands of Gold earn their master status through the rank’s namesake, “The Hand Challenge,” in which a challenger must bet his hand against the master. If the challenger wins, they become the new Hand of Gold, receiving all possessions of the previous master. If the sitting Hand of Gold wins, however, the challenger loses a hand, a potentially crippling disfigurement depending on the challenger’s line of work. Some have spoken out against this practice, calling it barbaric, but the Hands of Gold hold the tradition in high regard as a pivotal test for those who seek the rank.

    Aside from work in the Gambler’s Guild establishments, members of the Guild find work in almost all other Guilds. They work as spies for the Nightshade Cartel, ranchers and breeders for the various animal-centric gambling activities, and merchants of semi-legal to illegal substances, to name a few. They have built arenas for fighting, stadiums for races, casinos for gambling and even operate one distillery and two breweries. Some have also begun pursuing advances in the field of Eyes Magic as an attempt to overthrow the Hands of Gold. The pursuit itself exemplifies the venerated traits of deception, sleight of hand, and magical ability, though none are yet known to have succeeded in this application.
