Rumours of the 15th
Construction of a false god
The Legion is up to no good. And we're finally starting to get some proof.The Legion is the planet wide coalition military force that exists to protect humanity from the constant threat of Rendlings, the horrible monsters formed from exposure to the blood of gods, Ichor. They have bases on every continent, a say in every government, and influence with every leader. The power that the Legion holds has far outpaced that which they've needed, and in modern times that power has begun to attract corruption. Rumours have begun to circulate that certain key leaders within the Legion's organization have put large scale plans into place that would have consequences felt all across Cathedris. People point to experimentation with humans and ichor, studies on specific God-husks and Catalurgy in general, as signs that the Legion is attempting to construct a god-like being of their own. Many have begun to call whatever the Legion is building "the fifthteenth", an artificial diety intended to replace the other 14 gods that now exist merely as husks.

It's our 10th missing person case in as many months. It's almost clockwork. The first day of every month, someone vanishes, and then a week later a monster appears. Someone's behind this.Within the Legion exists a secret core of resistance members, working diligently to leak specific documents and sabotage the Legion when they can. The resistance was born out of a distate for how the Legion treats non-members and local people, and for how they weild the power they possess in an arrogant manner. Yet as this core of resistance grew, they began to uncover the deep secrets that even most regular Legion members had no knowledge of -- terrible experiments undertaken, horrors constructed, and mind breaking artefacts collected.
The LegionThe Legion likes to say that they were founded on year 0, a mere 6 months after the end of The Seven Day War -- however those claims remain unverified. From the beginning, they've been a coalition of the best warriors from every country, trained together in order to fight the Rendlings. They've always had a firm agreement that no Legion soldier is able to participate within wars between nations, which has led to some controversy on which fighters become Legionnaires and which remain loyal to the country from which they came.
The Legion is a multinational neutral fighting force built to protect all Cathedrans from the threat of the Rendlings, but the organization harbors a dark secret.
