Acehrax raptors

By:

Acehrax raptors, with fifty foot wingspans and powerful talons, these dangerous creatures, are the bane of the Snake Riders.

Full Description
These terrible things have resemble a cross between an eagle and a dragon, having the white head and talons of a bird of prey but the leathery wings and tail of a dragon. With a wingspan streching 50 feet across,these birds are reknown among the Snake Riders for being the mortal enemy of the beloved Serpents.

Regarded as monsters worth collecting as trophies,they have been the target of many a party of Snake Rider warriors that go off in search of the rocky islands they are said to nest in. Armed with poisoned arrows and spears,the hunters flush the beast out of its lair by building a fire at the entrance. Then, when the beast storms out screaming, they fall upon it with their weapons. This is extremely dangerous, for even when disorientated,the raptor can still be lethal.

The chief of the Ogax tribe who once went on such a hunt,recollects seeing a raptor slay a Serpent with its talons and then rip apart five men with its beak before it was finally brought down.

Additional Information
Most raptors are very solitary and live alone,coming together only to mate. The exceptions to this are females guarding their eggs or fledglings unable to fend for themsleves.

A nifty creature with just enough detail to serve as springboard.

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.
