Erikson's Illuminators

The order follows a hierarchy of command that consists of five ranks. In order from lowest ranking to highest ranking, these are Dawnseeker, Lightbringer, Shadebreaker, Illuminator, and Lord-Illuminator. Dawnseekers are the newly inducted who passed their trials to join the order. Lightbringers generally serve as captains who are put in charge of squads of Dawnseekers. Shadebreakers act as lieutenants who oversee various operations and deployments to ensure they go as planned. Illuminators serve as the generals of the order, serving directly under the order's grandmaster; the Lord-Illuminator. Goals. Preserve the goodness of the realm and attempt to redeem the evils of the land; failing that they eliminate them.

    Public Agenda

    Preserve the goodness of the realm and attempt to redeem the evils of the land; failing that they eliminate them.


    Eriksson's Illuminators were left with an exorbitant sum of coin by their leader, as well as a massive fortified keep that possessed a fully-stocked armoury. The Illuminators generally favour the use of heavy arms and armour. Their main keep, the Bastion of the Flame, has a number of special defenses as well as a rookery of griffons which are used by high ranking warriors as mounts

    Redemption through the flames, prosperity through the ashes




    Change takes time. Those who have walked the path of the wicked must be given reminders to keep them honest and true. Once you have planted the seed of righteousness in a creature, you must work day after day to allow it to survive and then flourish.


    Your heart and mind must stay clear, for eventually you will be forced to admit defeat. While every creature can be redeemed, some are so far along the path of evil that you have no choice but to end their lives for the greater good. Any such action must be carefully weighed and the consequences fully understood, but once you have made the decision, follow through with it knowing your path is just.
