Talumek Monks Organization in Pathfinder Pirates | World Anvil

Talumek Monks

Named after founder Giusuppe Talumek, the Talumek monks are a pseudo-religious monk order found primarily in Abrastien. Like other monks, they adhere rigorous practices in order to achieve a higher state-of-being. Unlike other monk orders, they do not practice asceticism, and indulge regularly in material pleasures.

Talumek consider themselves an ethnic group, and are recognized socially as one. However, Abrastien  does not officially recognize Talumek  as an ethnicity.


The monk order was founded by the half-orc Giusuppe Talumek.
