### Relations
#### Astral Trade Union
- Are on good (trading) terms with both the _Drahki Federation_ and the _Zhyffan Armada_ (with some members of each also holding Union membership).
- Think most of the _Society of Wanderers_ are hopeless layabouts, inadequately interested in commerce (although few ship captains will refuse their payment for passage).
- Are on tenuous terms with the _Stral Empire_ (they've had some trade, but also some border skirmishes).
- Actively seek the destruction of the _Pirates of Ataxia_ (even though some Union members occasionally double as pirates).
#### Drahki Federation
- Are on good (trading) terms with _Astral Trade Union_ (with some Drahki captains also being Union members).
- Are on decent (trading) terms with the _Zhyffan Armada_ (there have been a few isolated incidents of fighting between the groups, but they generally continue to trade).
- Don't understand the _Society of Wanderers_, but generally allow them to book passage on their ships.
- Are on deteriorating terms with the _Stral Empire_ (they've had an increasing number of border skirmishes).
- Try to avoid engaging with ships from the _Pirates of Ataxia_, who generally return the favor (although there are some Drahki pirates who try to only attack ships from the other factions).
#### Zhyffan Armada
- Are on good (trading) terms with _Astral Trade Union_ (with some Zhyffan captains also being Union members).
- Are on decent (trading) terms with the _Drahki Federation_ (there have been a few isolated incidents of fighting between the groups, but they generally continue to trade).
- Don't understand (or like) the _Society of Wanderers_, and don't allow them on their ships.
- Are on deteriorating terms with the _Stral Empire_ (they've had an increasing number of border skirmishes).
- Actively seek the destruction of the _Pirates of Ataxia_ (although some Zhyffan ships have been known to turn pirate, abandoning the Armada and working for the Pirate Lords).
#### Society of Wanderers
- Don't care for the leadership of the _Astral Trade Union_, but try to stay friendly with the ship captains.
- Don't understand most of the _Drahki Federation_, but are generally happy to book passage on their ships.
- Don't get along with the _Zhyffan Armada_, and generally avoid them.
- Don't understand (or like) the _Stral Empire_, although a few Travellers have tried to engage with Stral crews (which hasn't ended well)
- Have many members who also work as _Pirates of Ataxia_, and don't generally preclude pirates from their ranks (although the pirate captains aren't always thrilled to have Wanderers on their ships).
#### Stral Empire
- Are on tenuous terms with the _Astral Trade Union_ (they've had some trade, but also some border skirmishes).
- Are on deteriorating terms with both the _Drahki Federation_ and the _Zhyffan Armada_ (they've had an increasing number of border skirmishes with each of them).
- Don't understand (or like) the _Society of Wanderers_, and don't allow them on their ships.
- Try to avoid engaging with ships from the _Pirates of Ataxia_, who generally return the favor (although they have had engagements in Stral territory).
#### Pirates of Ataxia
- Actively attack (and raid) the ships of the _Astral Trade Union_ and the _Zhyffan Armada_, occasionally even looting their ports.
- Try to avoid engaging with ships working for the _Drahki Federation_, who generally return the favor (although there are some Drahki pirates who try to only attack ships from the other factions).
- Have many members who also identify as members of the _Society of Wanderers_, usually pirates of lower ranks (the ship captains aren't fond of having members in their crew because of the high number of stowe-aways).
- Try to avoid engaging with ships of the _Stral Empire_, who generally return the favor (although they have had a few engagements in within Stral territory).

- The other members of the Tribunal are Adjen, Behum, Dreyko, Kiro, Ufyum, and Vutrem.
- Lyffans believe that, when they die, their souls are brought before this tribunal, where all of the crimes and transgressions they'v ever committed are read aloud, as are all of their good deeds.
- Once this is complete, the Tribunal passes judgement on the soul, either allowing it to pass to Ayfu (the Land of Riches) or sending the soul back to be reborn on Lyffu.

### The Teachings of the Church of Endrion
#### The History of the Multiverse
- In the beginning there was only Ymmyrr, slumbering in the great void. And when we awoke, he was lonely, so he created Endrion and Lyndralyth before going back to sleep.
- With his magic, Endrion created the great plane of Drahkenos, and the first metallic dragons to help him rule it.
- These were the first Exalted Wyrmlords, and the helped build Castle Starpeak and the Great Hall of Judgement.
- But Lyndralyth was jealous of her brothers success, and sought to undo his great work. Using her own magic, she created her own race of chromatic dragons, based on her 6 heads, and she laid siege to her brother's realm.
- This was the First Great Dragon War, and it ended with Endrion triumphing over his sister and banishing her and her followers from Drahkenos.
- While peace and prosperity reigned on Drahkenos, Lyndralyth and her brood spread across the multiverse like a plague, leaving destruction in their wake, and infesting the planes with cursing the planes with the scourge of chromatic dragon eggs.
- Endrion chased his sister across the planes, searching for a way to bring and end to her rampage. Along the way, he and his Exalted Wyrmlords established the first temples, sowing the first seeds of civilization with His great gifts (law, truth, and flame), and leaving behind the blessings of metallic dragon eggs.
- When Endrion finally caught up to Lyndralyth, their battle shook the multiverse itself, awaking Ymmyrr, who created the first crystalline dragons and sent them to ensure the balance would be maintained. Endrion, commanding armies of both metallic and crystalline dragons, managed to subdue and bind Lyndralyth, trapping her in the ruined portion of Drahkenos, now called the Nether Vale, where she has remained since.
#### The Afterlife
- When a follower of Endrion dies, their soul is taken before Him for judgement.
- He holds court at the top of Mount Starpoint, tallest amongst the Golden Peaks of the dragon plane of Drahkenos.
- The soul is then given the option of stepping through the Mantle of Cleansing Fire, a great wall of multi-colored flame that burns only chaos.
- Those who step through the fire with chaos in their heart are consumed by the flames and lost forever.
- Those who refuse to step through are banished to the Nether Vale, the dark underside of Drahkenos, beyond the Shadow Ridges.
- The souls of the dragons banished there struggle for dominance amongst themselves, while the dragonborn and other "smaller" races are invariably forced to work as slaves for the fell dragons until the Final Great Dragon War.
- Those who pass through the Mantle successfully are rewarded based on their race:
- Dragons may live for eternity amongst the Golden Peaks, with the truly worth being allowed to join the ranks of the Exalted Wyrmlords of His noble court.
- Dragonborn are either reborn as dragons, or invited to join the Royal Honor Guard of His Court.
- Members of other races are either reborn (as a dragonborn or, even better, a dragon), or are invited to join the ranks of the Devout Riders (riding into the Final Great Dragon War on the backs of the Exalted Wyrmlords themselves).
- Prophecy says that one day, Lyndralyth will arise and attempt to overthrow Endrion in what's called the Final Great Dragon War. According to the doctrines of the church, the lawful dragons will eventually win, but at a great cost - the plane of Drahkenos will be destroyed, and Endrion himself will die, only to "reborn in victory".
#### The Order of the Cleansing Fire
- A puritanical order devoted to the idea of absolution through suffering.
- Redo based on the notes from Brandon
- "The only thing I am thinking about is that the organization focus more on punishment. Forgiveness through punishment, Absolution through punishment. They don't think prisons or jails are worth while and feel that offender should be punished harshly regardless of the crime. After all its hard to steal a loaf of bread if you only have one hand. Also, there is no statue of limitations, so if you stole said bread 10 years ago and even reached out to the person you stole it from and repaid them several times over. It does not matter the offender should still be punished and even more harshly then if you had been punished when it first happened."
- More "Judge Dredd" or "The Punisher"
- Named after a great brass dragon (one of the exalted Wyrmlords)
- Heavy into the punitive aspect, "absolution through suffering"
- Just as the mantle cleanses the soul of chaos through burning, the order believes in cleansing the soul through the pain.
- Still a puritanical order, probably full of self-flagellating-types
- You can't do Endrion's work with any chaos in your own soul, so you have to burn it out
- Lots of scars and/or burn marks on the highly devoted
- Still like to use fire to to extract confessions from suspected agents of chaos, but they also like to use it to burn the chaos out of the repentant.
- I imagine that it works like this:
- word of a transgression makes it's way to someone in the order, who report it up the line.
- Somewhere there exists a library that they use, a set of scrolls called "The Scroll of Penance" which lists the appropriate punishment for any of thousands of (very specific) transgressions.
- Many of these punishments are fatal
- Many involve burning and/or branding
- This implies:
- The order probably isn't very popular in some areas (those under the incfluence of more lenient deities)
- I'd wager several of the order have been martyred over the org's history - burned in place of their quarry, assassinated before they could perform their duties, or even killed in retaliation for having passed judgement on someone.
- Most devotees of Endrion won't interfere with them as they go about their "duties" (not directly, anyways)
- Also serve as the punitive arm of the greater Church of Endrion, known for carrying out judgements against enemies of the church.
- Some agents are prone to using fire to extract confessions from suspected agents of chaos, as well as disposing of said agents post-confession.
- Connor's chapter was headed by Inquisitor Kuras, a highly-devout (but increasingly paranoid) half-elven male.
- Kuras reports to Grand Inquisitor, Cardinal Brillaal, an elven female who lives on the far side of Ayreon.

Lyffan muskets are something to behold - a streamlined amalgamation of wood and iron, shaped (and tipped) like a spear, but which can fire a metal slug at great speed (and for heavy damage). Their superior construction makes them less prone to breaking, but their painfully slow reload time makes them useless as ranged weapons, beyond a brutal opening shot. Used almost exclusively by the Lyffan Expeditionary Force, as only their priests know the correct spells to make them work.
<div class="dividedTableWrapper">
| Weapon | Weight (Coins) | Damage | Properties |
| ------------- | -------------- | ------ | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ |
| Lyffan Musket | 75 | 1d8 | Loud, Melee, Missile (540 / 4180 / 81120), One-shot (d10), Slow, Two-handed |
</div>
### Weapon Properties
Most of the properties can be found in this list. The new ones are listed below.
- **Loud**: First use of [missile attack](/rules/combat.html#missile-attacks) triggers a [complication check](/rules/adventuring.html#complication-check) and causes untrained animals some small humanoids (2HD or less) to make a morale check or flee.
- **One-shot**: Missile attack may only be used once per turn for the damage listed.
