The Glade

By:

100 Word Society

The Glade is a trust composed of wizards who make monstrous human hybrids, mongrel men, and augmented beings. They have no qualms about the horror they inflict in their search for a superior fighting specimen. Victims are forced to fight gladiator style, using only their weaponized bodies. Escapees are hunted down ruthlessly and those who help them become test subjects themselves. Driven mad by pain and sorcery, the once-men who escape are little more than real monsters, and many think the Glade noble for capturing and disposing of them. Little do outsiders know the truth behind the Glade's monster hunting.

Fanboydom is about passing baton.  Role-playing is the purest form of the relay race, if the one handing you the baton got to you with purpose and grace, then your race will have the freedom and confidence that you can only get from a head start.  This one is a good start.

Like Robot Wars, but with fantasy sentients. It's a good thing.

I think this is a good one - there are a lot of adventure hooks that could come out of it. I could imagine them being behind all sorts of crime, from kidnappings, to abducting criminals from prisons (technically still kidnapping, I guess), sexual slavery, etc. Nicely monstrous. I like it.

 A great little idea easily expanded upon. A worthy 100.

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.
