Legacy of Amon
The Oathshields are a sect of warrior who’s purpose is to defend the common folk. The Oathshields have organizations in all major nations except The Marn, although their largest presence is in Lyria. Part of the doctrine of the Oathshields is to strictly defend those who need protect. While most will strike down attackers, many refuse to kill as well. The sect strictly forbids passing judgement for fear that doing so will lead its members away from their purpose.
The Oathshields are only loosely organized, resembling more closely a religious militia than an army or a sect. Member often defer to local leaders, and only infrequently to local leaders meet together. Each local leader, deemed the head of a division, is raised to power by the division’s member is whatever fashion they chose. The only strict rule is that no leader command a division for more than 6 years.
