The Path of the Advocate
The Advocate has been called the great mystery. In the darkest hour, as the last of us were to be consumed by evil, a voice spoke and our world was saved. Though so much was destroyed some of us survived, and here we remain.
The Path of the Advocate describes the woven fates of those who seek the redemption of our world. These men and women advocate for the people and intercede against the forces of evil. Among these heroes are those who choose the path, as others wander onto the path by chance or by fate.
Mighty heroes and bold adventurers travel ancient roads and assail terrible evils on the righteous quest to redeem a fragmented world.
Heroes of the Advocate
The Questing KNight
Dukes and Lords often train an elite fighting force from among the upper class. These knights study a wide variety of martial disciplines in service of their liege. However, there are a select few who are overcome by the plight of the world and disappear into the wild lands. Questing Knights are powerful fighters bearing castle forged arms and armor. Formally, the lords are required to respect the Path of the Advocate for any of their Knights. However, individuals are often met with scorn by their brothers and chastised for foolishness. This only serves to harden the resolve of those who truly walk the Path.
Of unmatched martial prowess, Questing Knights wander the lands seeking their true duty. In this world glory and death await just beyond the walls.
The Cleric of Justice
The Justice Clerics are organized to seek the path of the Advocate and resist the Adversary in every way. Bearing the sigil of the Advocate, the clerics travel from city to city on the dangerous roads through the wilds. The innocent adore the Order of Justice, as the wicked tremble.
The Clerics of Justice are armed with shields and powerful war-hammers. Blessed with the ability to summon the might of Justice in the form of a spirit-weapon: a spectral hammer that fights along their side with deadly affect.
The Handrakoth, people of the dragon, were once hated and distrusted by other races. After the sundering the Order of Justice took in a handful of orphans. Now these half-dragon clerics are their most fearsome agents. The Clerics of Justice are among the most dedicated opponents of the Adversary, and often gather others on The Path to their cause as they resist the forces of evil.
Wild elf Druid
The Wild Elves chose to embrace the changed world in their own way. Rather than retreating into walled cities, as many other survivors chose, they became part of the new wilderness. As nature persists through cataclysm, so shall the Elves.
The way of the Druid is a solitary existence. The druid is in communion with nature and abides within the savage laws of the wild. They are able to take the shape of a wild beast and the druid may spend years in this form without ever encountering civilization.
The shape of the mighty cave bear is among the most fearsome shapes a druid may choose. These powerful beasts can contend with the horrors and monstrosities that plague the land on equal terms. With tooth and claw these creatures are horrors in their own right.
But even the wild heart of the druid is not immune from the Path of the Advocate. Some are chosen by the great mystery and find themselves as powerful allies in the fight against the perversion of evil upon the world.
Rogues of every kind inhabit this world of uncertainty. While many in pursuit of nefarious lifestyles do so to take advantage of their fellow man, some have been driven into the profession as a last resort. In these dark times Justice is a rare luxury, and many find themselves struggling to survive under harsh rulers.
Nimble, clever, and rightly suspicious of authority. The Thief is a valuable member of a Seeker's team. She is able to quickly dive into situations keeping a keen eye out for danger and an aptitude for claiming valuable treasures.
The Lone Guard
Legends dating back to the sundering tell of how a single individual with righteous purpose can make a difference in this cruel world. The Lone Guard are built on this very foundation. They say the first was a simple shield bearer who lead eighty refugees to safety. In harsh winter conditions he boldly protected the people against all odds. To believe a single low-born soldier could protect eighty grants faith in hope for today.
The Lone Guard are an ancient order of ever vigilant rangers and warriors. These frontiersmen travel hidden paths with deadly purpose to forge a new destiny. They have stood for centuries as the main hope for small villages and larger strongholds alike. Tracking the movements of larger threats and bringing low monstrous beasts.
The inspiring work of the Lone Guard attracts aid from beyond the sworn brotherhood. These intrepid warriors are aided by brave companions. Both the stalwart Billman and the savage Sabertooth lend aid to the noble cause.
