Endomar Mining Guild
This small, loose organization of miners has its main offices in Casa Grande. EMG represents the closest thing to a union that an independent miner working in the Endomar system can hope for. The EMG constantly agitates for standard wages, increased safety, and system wide training. Unfortunately, the EMG is virtually powerless, since no company or miner is bound to follow the Guild’s suggestions. However, a growing number of miners and mining support staff are becoming members of the EMG each year. In fact, the number of miners claiming membership in the guild outnumbers the total independent miner population in the system. Clearly, things are changing. However, it is unclear just how long the EMG can continue to grow without attracting the attention of large, entrenched mining interests such as VoidCorp.
The current leader of the EMG is Solaren Vri (Hf/Endo- mar/DTO-7). Solaren is a no-nonsense leader whose worked all of her life developing mining technology. As such, she is intimately familiar with the conditions and experiences of the mining industry. Short and physically unassuming, Solaren has a strong personality and a tenacious, bulldog like way of dealing with opposition.
