Tongue-Binding Arts

By:

A rare and localized school of contagion magic. An offshoot of Entwining.

The Binding of Tongues is old witch magic, which evolved from that most ancient caste of practitioners known throughout history as the School of Entwiners

The witches of Karaam-Sava were, and some say still are, most known for brandishing this form of arcana.

Thousands of years ago, tongue-binding magic was used by the witches to thwart the pygmy armies of the Gwa and their vile Spell-Throats.

Centuries later, during the Ebn-Nodd Imperium (the empire of the Sons of Nodd), these same witches, or more accurately, their descendants and apt pupils, used tongue-binding magic in battling back the relentless assaults of the magicians of Uo, who came from their hilly, eastern lands, riding their malevolent winged, devil-goats, in brazen attempts to assassinate the Potentates and Imperators of Karaam-Sava, in retaliation for the years of rapine and pillage the people of Uo had suffered and endured, during Ebn-Nodds empirical expansion.

In essence, Tongue-Binding involved the silencing of spell casters via the laws of Contagion Magic

I'm looking for someone to either help me with this (just add scrolls!), or to just tell me that this is not worth doing as an entire article :)

Still trying to get my head around this one, though the 'vile Spell Throats' sounds cool.

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.
