The Celestial Gavel    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)

"O Victorious Maul, send down your fury!
O Hammer of Justice, bring Dalraaen’s law!
O Weapon of Righteousness, cast out the unlawful!"
- Magistrate Archivinus Kelstori, Ode to the Gavel

With the patronage of Dalraaen, this heavenly mace is the focus of the Magisterium’s strongest order.  Its darker roots, however, are hidden even to its wielders, and its very existance threatens the world.

- Exarch Hardulph Symphorian

Not only a faith but a state, the Imperial Modoals are the largest force in the Continent.  Can they hold their position as the Sectarian Wars begin?

The worshippers of the Celestial Judge have kept peace and law for a thousand years.  When they see great injustice across the Continent, what can they do but fight?

“‘Hear! That which you warred for it gone. In its place is my own creation under my own authority. This Blessed Great Blue is my patronage and you will have no part in it! Lest you soil my sacred waves, I will cause them to crash onto your lands and drown your own creations. End your fighting: the seas are mine.’
Thus she spake from the Merciful Deep.”

The mysterious Sisters of the Sea watch the events of the Sectarian Wars unfold from the safety of their monastery ships.  But how long can they remain neutral before war is brought upon them?

The Cultus of Vautu    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)

“And into World they cast him, deep below, beneath stone and water and flame.  In World’s Heart, doth gape the Peccant Maw, yet starved as the hunger grows unabated.  Terror, irony, horror, farce!  That which ends all is trapped beneath all.”
-The Tale of the Maw, “The Enslavement of the Devourer”

An ancient cult, the Vautuans worship their god with zeal.  Chaos is their sacrament, death their prayer.  Will the followers of the Gaping Maw free their god and destroy the world?

Trouble follows some people wherever they go.  I follow that trouble and make sure those people don’t make anymore trouble.  It ain’t easy, but someone’s got to do it.

"I have seen the beast, tentacled and cruel.  Tore out me eye, it did, like pickin’ a plum.  It’s cursed, I tell ye, cursed to its cold heart."

Misunderstood and much maligned, the Hek is a traveller who dreads violence.  If it only understood the violence it caused.

Sekkitan blood diamonds    Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)

“In the Black, dead souls creep
Seeking vengence without sleep.
Sacrificed for precious stones,
Rend they now flesh and bones.
Bloody staind and drenched in tears,
Stones cry out to one who hears,
‘Treachery has sown the seeds!
Now you’ll be the one who bleeds!
Wear us well, you who brave,
Next you’ll be in the grave!’”
- Tas-Vessina’s curse

       By: MoonHunter

It seemed like a great place to camp. The clearing was good sized and sheltered from the wind. The brook just a few feet away. There is a natural hallow to keep the horses.

Then the night came.

It was like it became a different place. The temperature dropped. The wind, which does not seem to disturb cloth, almost cuts through you like an arctic wind. No one can sleep, as the soft ground has turned hard. The horses are uneasy. The Bats are flying over and stopping in the trees.

And then there is the eyes. There are glowing eyes just inside the tree line watching your group. The mages and clerics can detect nothing, but there is still something there.

(yet there is nothing at all... The Darkness will do nothing unless the players do something to it. And even then it will all seem to be a conincidence.)

Of course, in the morning, it all becomes sweet and light.
