Fellowship of Explorers
The Fellowship of Explorers ranks the adventurers of the realms based on the percentage of the known world they have explored. Only a few have achieved the highest ranking within this Fellowship and have done so through thorough exploration of Achaea. As more and more terra incognita becomes mapped and documented, the ratio of land explored shrinks relative to the whole; as such, explorer rankings may fluctuate wildly over periods of time.
