The order of shaytanskourge answer directly to the Empress and work out of their base on the Narwasser in the upper Chorus valley. Outside of the Empress and the members of the order, only those who will never leave have ever seen the Shaytanqalea.
Nestled on the dark lake and sheltered by the high valley slopes, the Shaytanqalea is an impregnable bulwark of defence for the empire. From here the order is safe to carry out its inquisition into every corner of Spheria Gardia.
It is the belief of the shaytanskourge that the alshayatin are plotting in the shadows of the realm to bring forth a Second Age of Darkness. Alshayatin are skilled tricksters and spies, they have many means to get what they desire and can take many forms, making the role of a shaytanskourge particularly deadly.
The shaytanskourge believe only by eradicating darkness can light be restored. They follow the philosophies of Arulius and Herophelia, chiefly the idea of sacrificing oneself to the darkness for the greater light.
Tenets of Faith
Commit oneself to the Darkness.
Do not fear the Darkness.
Become the Darkness.
Let Sitelius guide you.
Never surrender; the alshayatin show no mercy.
Only a commander can order the retreat, and only where his shaytanskourge are outnumbered by at least three-to-one.
Sacrafice the Darkness
