The Way of Divine Wealth    Society/ Organizations  (Religious)   (Regional)
"O Divine Broker, merchant of souls, bless our transaction, make it holy and righteous in Your sight. May those that profit from it be ever prosperous, and earn our reward in Your Sacred Market. Release us from our debts, and grant us lucrative exchange now and forever."

- Prayer before a trade, from Bashad the Spectacular's "The Handbook of Divine Wealth"

Any number of clergymen might be accused of putting their demands for secular wealth over their spiritual needs. Even these, however, would never claim to worship their prosperity. Yet such is the case with the followers of the Way of Divine Wealth, a religion of uncertain history and unabashed cupidity.

"From his strange raft, the bizarre man stood, shell armor glistening in the sun.  Bringing his stingray-barbed spear aloft, he howled: 'Be wary, trespasser!  This reef is under my guard, and I her patronage!  Bring not your boats near my shoal, lest you suffer the wrath of the Reef Knights!'"
 - The logs Cpt. Creos Althea, Boshail Coast, 6 Ventôse 986.

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.”
- Yamasatran oral tradition

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?

Tagma Drakontas    Society/ Organizations  (Natural)   (World Wide)

“The great hulk of the scaled beast lay wheezing before me, and I am not ashamed to say that I was frightened: though it was injured, I knew the dragon could easily tear me in twain. The young monk, however, knelt beside the creature’s head, whispering to it in a strange growling tongue. I questioned the woman, but she ignored me completely, engrossed in examining the scaly monster. After much badgering, she said merely, ‘I do not mean to be rude, but you are quite a distraction. Please, leave me to my work.’” -Jeron’s Great Journeys, Book III, Chapter 4

       By: Agar

The players see a small shrine to the local nature deity just of the trail. Before they even approach it, they can smell the foul stench of rotting meat. If they inspect the shrine, they can see it has been desecrated by rotting organs in the last few days. There is no mistaking it for an obscure ritual, the organs are thrown everywhere, not left in specific places as in sacrifice.

If the players try to clean the shrine, they will soon find it has been boobytrapped to fling sharp splinters covered in the rotting gore in every direction. While only doing a few points of damage, they injured players will likely take sick soon unless they get medical attention.
