The Fighters of the Light
The Fighters of the Light are a puzzle. They are from the Theocracy of the Pale, are lawful neutral to a man, and loudly proclaim their purpose as seeking and rooting out chaos in all its manifestations. The six fighters of the group, and their priest-leader Magund Starran, are exceptionally well equipped (plate mail, a variety of weaponry, light warhorses) and of superb morale. They explain their departure from their homeland as a driving need on their part to crusade against chaos and fight it more directly, though they have had plenty of adventures in the castles and keeps circling the Troll Fens.
By virtue of their skills they will not work for low pay, and they are snobbish, greatly preferring a noble employer. However, the group is capable, loyal, and utterly dependable. Their failure in finding employment is due to popular prejudice against any who are loudmouthed in the reverence of Pholtus, and general dislike for the arrogance of the group.
