Brothers of The Lash

By:

“Move!” The whip cracks above the beasts of buren. The wagon slowly moves forward.

The “Brothers of the Lash” is the teamsters/ drivers association, a powerful force in any town that does trade or has a port. They drive the wagons and manage the caravans, and in fact oversee trade, warehousing, and the like.

They are a remarkably diverse lot (they take members from many species). They are tightly united however, and everyone pays their rates. If they catch any non-members hauling goods, even a simple cart of produce, the offender is whipped and his animals (or slaves) are hamstrung.

Most of their members are humble cart drivers, but the Council of Senior Brothers (male, female, or otherwise) are powerful and rich.

Feel free to add what you want. This is mostly a place holder for the Brothers so they can be used in other posts not completely written.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
