Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
The Burning Pyres
While many men and gangs hire themselves out as killers, these are just morally bankrupt souls lacking any regard for life and any worries about being executed, combined with a willingness to murder a man in cold blood for a handful of coin. The Burning Pyres is a group of true assassins.
It is said that no man, regardless of station, is safe from the Burning Pyres. The group takes it name from the small pile of burning sticks it leaves near each victim.
