World Group: Earth, Standard

Like most such clubs, the Century Club exists primarily to provide its membership an opportunity to mix and mingle in a comfortable social environment. Beyond that goal, its charter is one of philanthropy and the promotion of the arts and sciences. The club grants numerous scholarships annually and has funded scientific projects and expeditions throughout its history. With chapterhouses in many of the world’s major cities, the club is a truly international organization, and has contacts (and members) in many places of importance. Naturally, the club draws a shroud of mystery over its inner workings. Generations of contributions have made the club a financial power in its own right, and those finances, as well as the membership roster, have always been controlled by an inner circle of officers, called Decarions, who are the most respected members of the club and who are chosen on the first day of each new decade. It is rumored that there is another circle within the Decarions, of Centurions, who wield the real power of the club, but such rumors are as inevitable as they are fanciful.
