The Research Commission
|Faction Name||The Research Commission|
They are based on Astera, a bustling outpost made from the salvaged remains of their ship. Here they learn, prepare and develop strategies, carry out missions and expeditions to reveal the secrets of the empire. Despite the challenges and dangers posed by this wilderness, the Commission's commitment remains unwavering.
Their work is fundamental and leads to groundbreaking discoveries about animal behavior, habitats and life cycles. They adhere to strict ethics and ensure that animals are studied without harming or disrupting their natural order. The work of the Commission of Inquiry not only raises awareness, but also maintains the balance between man and nature, a deeply rooted philosophy.
Armed with the power of unity and a thirst for knowledge, a commission of inquiry leads the way into the unknown, ever eager to uncover the secrets that lie within the monster-filled landscapes of the New World. Their legacy is exploration, understanding and respect for the extraordinary world in which they find themselves.
The creation of this faction is closely related to the discovery of the New World. In search of the world's secrets, the guild stumbled upon a land full of unique ecosystems and unknown species. Fascinated by this new knowledge, the guild assembled a team of experienced hunters, scientists, engineers, and cooks, and a commission of inquiry was born. Since the purpose of this expedition was mainly focused on scientific research, most of the activities involved documenting the observations, observing the specimens and studying their behavior. As a result, members were often seen with a notebook and pencil, demonstrating their commitment to observation and documentation.
As their research progressed, the Commission began to unravel many mysteries surrounding the elder dragons. They realized that every decade these huge creatures crossed the ocean to die in the New World. This event, called Elder Crossing, became the focus of their investigation. Uncovering the secrets of Elder Crossing took time and put members' lives at risk, so the commission's mandate was extended indefinitely. They established Astera, their home base that allowed members to stay outside for longer periods of time. It was equipped with all the necessary services, from rooms to cellars, from workshops to laboratories, and guaranteed suitable living and working conditions.
Over the years, the Commission of Inquiry has contributed greatly to Monster's ecology. Even now, they continue their quest with unwavering spirit and live in harmony with the creatures of the New World. Thanks to their efforts, the Monster Hunter universe continues to expand and create new lore for hunters to discover.

An important feature of the New World is the Everstream, a vast underground river of bioenergy that serves as the lifeblood of the continent. This flow of energy pulses beneath the surface, and outflows shape the landscape, creating unique habitats.
The unpredictable and harsh environment of the New World, while a significant challenge, also provides opportunities for study and research, which is why the Commission of Inquiry was created. The commission's researchers are tasked with tracking down, studying and understanding the various monsters that inhabit the New World, as well as documenting the continent's unique geography and ecology, adding to the vast knowledge of the Monster Hunter universe.
