Every month within the guild the apothecaries get the chance to try out for a spot as a plaguebringer. What is a plaguebringer, exactly? Well...a plaguebringer is a Hand of Vengeance only title. They are the advanced members within the apothecarium that specialize in toxinology and chemical weaponry.
To become a plaguebringer in the guild, it takes a great deal of practice and time. And of course...taking lessons from Professor Drayvenn Shallowgrave; a senior plaguebringer.
Taking lessons from Shallowgrave is not always easy. His methods are very demanding and often at times strict in the apothecarium. But he makes sure things are done correctly.
Over the course of a month he holds several events related to plaguebringing starting with try outs. Then if the apothecaries make the cut they are allowed to attend an orientation the following week. From then on the events gradually get harder with each passing week, until the ones remaining are rewarded with a graduation ceremony.
Not to worry though for those that did not make it! They are free to try again the next month there is a scheduled meeting! If you are outside of the guild and are interested in attending, please contact a LoV member for details!
