sartlar and branding iron

Sartlar are forced to labour everywhere in the Commonwealth by the overseers of the Masters. By far the greatest proportion of them are used to cultivate the vast agricultural spread of the Guarded Land.

Sartlar of this kind are identified by having the ‘Earth’ glyph branded deep into their faces. The sketches show a sartlar marked in this way and the iron with which the branding is done.
