What was the reason for this resistance movement? Who was Kros Embron and why did he create the Spies? How do the Espers differ from the Spies? What are the group's rituals and practices?
This has definite potential, but it needs work. Go to Comment

Hastur?! Very nice, work, Mike, very nice indeed. I love the mythic qualities of it, and I also like that the idea of his being a "leper-king" was sort of attached to him. Humans will see what they want to see. Go to Comment

Generally I dislike having a whole zooful of werebeasts; people like to have everything from were-nematodes to were-okapis and everything in between, and I think it gets ridiculous and takes the mystery and interest out of the simple idea of the human that becomes the animal. But I love this simply because these are such well-fleshed ideas of people and clans. Go to Comment

Probably depends on the place. It's doubtful whether or not they even remember enough about these places to have a suggestion of evil or ill omen. Go to Comment

CaptainPenguin's comment on 2008-11-21 06:53 PM
Interesting, interesting. It has a lot of potential, and I like the bizarre description of the creatures themselves and their justifications for their actions. However, it reads very awkwardly and some parts are confusing. Also, why do they call themselves the "Dark Crusaders"? Do they culturally associate darkness with good or law or whatever?

The thing is, these are only very general titles, and you can't "freeze" them to one meaning. I suppose these are good if you're doing a very basic take-off of Arabic culture, but these titles have had many different meanings and placements throughout times and cultures, often simultaneously.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
