The gist and history of UAVM

The Guild
So as I've said before, Under a Violet Moon is an older story of mine. It's about a group of trained warriors put together by a society called the Guild. The Guild seeks out gifted young Folk (a termed for all intelligent life) and trains them to be a peace keeping unit. They fall somewhere between police and vigilante.

The main characters are a foursome lead by Summer, a rabbit summoner. Her companions are her best friend Elwing, the river otter Elementalist; Fletch, a feline ranged weapon specialist; and Woodstar, the squirrel tracker/ranger. The Guild likes Folk from all walks of life, so teams are rather varied. Later on, after a few adventures Summer and crew are joined by 3 other characters: Shashi, a samurai-esque red panda; Faris, a good-natured yet experienced hare mercenary; and Kirana, an chipmunk beserker with a sordid past.

The environments are extremely varied in this story. The southern hemisphere ranges from deciduous forests, arid deserts, and open plains. A majority of the characters' early history takes place in these areas. (The final battle in this chapter of their takes place the rocky foothills not far from Woodstar's clan territory.)
A view from the upper branches of the Guild headquaters might look something like this:

The part of this world that the project will encompass takes place largely north of the Crosslands, thin barren waste land that runs the the entire length of the equator (at least the parts that cross land). The closer to the northern territories one gets the more likely you are to encounter depots, both open to all Folk, or or hidden like this technologically advance cloaked depot.In the distance of this image you can see the 'lighter" of the city region. There are small buildings compared to what can be seen farther north. A good part of this project will take place far into the northern hemisphere's depths. A city scape with varying degrees of cleaniness and populations. The technology driven North is far wilder than the medieval South ever was for Summer and friends.
