Esowyc Gatherer
NOTE: Ymgasion (eye-em-gauze-EE-on) is the name for Gatherers in the Order's native tongue.
This Journeyman Role is responsible for seeking out and acquiring Material Components for the Order. This is a crucial Role, but one few want, as it is often very dangerous; many Gatherers meet a bloody end. This Role is usually assigned to Journeymen that show a high degree of independence, don't work and play well with others, or perhaps don't always toe the party line. That's not to say it is a punishment, but on the other hand few Journeymen that are looked favorably upon are made Gatherers. Gatherers are given a distinctive black cloak with many pockets sewn on the inside.
A Gatherer is an excellent choice for an adventurer, as they have the most loose requirements of all the standard Journeyman Roles. Though they are frequently given laundry lists of Material Components to look for, it is very much a target of opportunity kind of business. So long as the Gatherer drops off sufficient quantities of reasonably useful Material Components, no one pokes their nose into their business. It is expected that Gatherers will drop off the map for periods of time as their journeys take them into odd places in pursuit of interesting components.

Esowyc Journeyman
The Esowyc Magic System is detailed here.
NOTE: The Order of Esow (EE-sue) is a guild of spellcasters that teaches a variant of the Spellweaving Magic System. Individual members of the Order are called Esowyc (ee-SUE-eek) singularly and collectively. The term for Journeymen in the native tongue of the Order is Ungolion (oon-goal-EE-on).
Esowyc are members of the Venerable Order of Esow, an indepent organization whose membership endeavor on their on the behalf of both themselves and their Order.
A powerful organization in their own lands, the Order has both political clout and all the authority great wealth often commands. Members of the Order are brought in as children, frequently from poor families or orphanages, and trained from young adulthood in the Mysteries of the Order. Eventually the young Initiates rise to the rank of Apprentice and take a tour of many different Esowyc Order Houses, before being elevated to the Rank of Journeyman.
Journeymen are the workhorses of the Order, being assigned to a number of necessary but not always safe or pleasant Roles where they toil on the Orders behalf until they elevate themselves to the Rank of Master. Journeymen wear practical sturdy black robes, a black pointed brimmed travel hat, carry a black leather wrapped metal components pouch, and carry a black oak staff with silver end caps.
