The Darkness

By:

The Darkness is not a group of assassins. They are however, not friendly people.

The Darkness can be hired by those few that know, for a nice sum of course. If they accept a target (how do they choose their victims is unknown), after a short time the victim mysteriously vanishes. Some in need of assasination prefer this, for if there is no body, there is no evidence, and instead of becoming a heir and prime suspect, one can silently steal that wealth, have the woman they love, etc.

Strangely enough, nobody is killed. The sect believes in the coming of an Ueber-human (or dwarf or elf or what), that is subconsciouly battled by the average people, that shall be replaced eventually. So if somebody is to be killed, it may be the ancestor of the True Man! The victim is actually kidnapped by the sect. (The diffilcuty of doing this decides if they do the "kill", and what price they ask for. Consequently, people of real power, with good bodyguards are rarely accepted as targets.)

Despite the saving, these are no friendly guys. The victim is completely brainwashed, and sent into some other cell of the sect, as far as possible. Living in the darkness they must tolerate until the Coming, helped with drugs along, the victim forgets most of the former life, and lives fanatically for the cause.

A good solid idea that I would love too see expanded Manfred.
For now I vote 3.0, but it could very easily ascend with some "outfleshing".

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
