Player-Created Faction Guide

Unofficial Player-Created Factions

The purpose of this thread is to bring to the front Player-created Factions, and to show new and old players a greater breadth of choice they have for character concepts outside of the official faction list.
The main difference between a Supported Official Faction and a Player Faction is DM and Development Team support. While the Supported Factions are very well fleshed-out and excellent, sometimes one cannot find exactly what they want to roleplay within that list. That is where Player Factions come in.

What is a Player Faction?
A "Player Faction" is an unofficial player-formed group that adheres to a certain In-Character goal or ideal. The types of which are many and far-reaching - a group of bandits, a dwarf clan, a druidic circle - the possibilities are endless. It is the spirit of working together towards an In-Character cause or ideal, and entering into the vibrant and immersive dynamics of the server. While many outlanders make friends and enemies while traveling alone, joining a player faction brings even further dynamic possibilities.

How do I join a Player faction?
This will vary from faction to faction, just as the supported faction recruitment happens. Some are secretive, others are very visible. You could make a fresh new character designed to join the faction, or have one you already play find an interest in them. Sometimes it can be difficult to find who leads a faction - but a quick OOC tell/PM to one of the members can be useful to arrange an IC encounter.

What is expected of me when joining a faction?
Again, this varies from faction to faction. However, it is best to join a player-faction with a very active character. Some like to make a new character spontaneously, but once the luster wares off, return to their 'main character.' This usually hurts factions more than it helps them, most factions put a lot of time and resources into helping their members, so playing with an active character is the most ideal choice. After all, the more you put into your character, the more you will get out of it!

Are all Player-created factions true to Ravenloft canon?
Yes and no. The nature of Ravenloft, and the Core as a whole, is that characters arrive from all realms. Thus, a player-faction group of druids from Faerun, for example, would be "canon," but not 'native' to the Core. Many of the most prominent religions and kingdoms in the lands of the Core arrived from different realms, the Lawgiver Cult and the cult of Belenus being strong examples. And while the Morninglord cult found its roots within the core, its strong similarity with the cult of Lathander hint at its possible lost history. That being said, unlike many of the Supported Factions, most player-factions are not found within the sourcebooks of Ravenloft canon. This does not make them illegitimate, however, they are simply dynamic expansions to our ever-growing world.

Important note to Secret Factions
Consider that this thread is both to facilitate the recruitment of members in player factions through the forum and to facilitate any need for OOC discussions. You should probably not broadcast your existence publicly if you wish to remain in the shadows and recruit in-game. In any case, if you do post here, you are still required to provide the proper contact information of at least one member, main forum account and Discord info.

Guidelines for posting in this thread.
While we understand the desire to customize the formatting of your posts, please keep it light and as concise as possible. We suggest that you stick to the following guidelines. The following template is suggested.
  • Title font size 24 and centered.
  • Avoid custom fonts and custom font colors.
  • Keep the forum default font size for the body of the text.
  • A single image per post and keep it relatively small. Large images should be adjusted using the "img width=XXX" function to adjust their size, where XXX is the pixel width you wish to use.
  • Don't use quote blocks.

The Guardians of Degannwy

Summary: Those Elves that have chosen to call Degannwy home may find a further calling by joining the Guardians. Devoted to the safe keeping of Degannwy, and also to the mentoring and leading of growth of all elves stuck in the mists, the Guardians take an active role in maintaining the peace of the grove. Due to the xenophobic nature of Barovia, the Guardians try to keep their organization mostly secret.

Races: Elves, half-elves
Classes: Any but Pale Master and Blackguard
Alignments: Any

Ranks and structure: The Guardians are lead by one devout to the idea of providing for all elves. Underneath them, there is a council of elders that help to lead and make decisions.

Role: The Guardians are multi dimensional. They serve as a casual militia, a cultural promotion group, a welcoming committee to new Elves and agents against the dark forces that are a danger to the land.

Getting involved: Any Elven character that spends time in Degannwy will quickly learn about the Guardians. If you are having trouble connecting with the leadership a PM can be sent to:
- Asariel Mina'stellyr (Catherine#7218)
- Tinu Naur (AgentGibbs)
- Elrebril (Moshimo)
- Caerylia
- Eruheran

Discord Channel: If you feel you are seriously involved in Degannwy activity and wish to be invited to our discord channel contact any of the leaders above.

The Company of the Bridge

Summary: The Company of the Bridge is a Free Company aimed with honorable intent, highly militarized and professional soldiers who undergo intensive training and maintain a strict discipline in uniform.

Unlike traditional companies, the COTB frowns upon wanton looting and destruction and strives to protect the innocent wherever it is able. The COTB seeks to maintain its honor, and provide on demand soldiery for crisis response wherever that crisis may be.

The Company of the Bridge takes on individuals from across the core, a hodgepodge of different personalities united under the ideal of self-betterment and service.

Races: Any race that manages to breach the social stigma of Port-a-Lucine.

Classes: Any, classes with a subversion for evil might find difficulty.

Alignments: Good, Neutral preferred. Evil characters will find themselves presented with IC challenges, or benched.

Notes: There is a strong possibility within this faction for player-conflict, tread with caution.
The Faction is centered in Dementlieu, while some may consider that imposing I would urge you to consider it as a cushioning point if you've even had a remote interest in Dementlieuse RP. I've always felt that it was incredibly difficult to jump straight into the nuance of intermingling with nobles and putting on the dog and pony show, - or not. Regardless, I'm hoping this can help to BRIDGE that gap.

Themes and expected challenges: War, Intrigue, Morality, Supernatural, Monster-Hunting.

Getting involved: Present yourself as eligible for enlistment with Roland Steele in game, or shoot me a message through discord so we can arrange a meet.. Or, neat idea - join the discord and ask about. If you aren't looking to enlist but to hire, the same method applies.

Contacts: JayJay#9670 or <-- Discord to the Company direct, please keep in mind that while I am not the police I would humbly request things be kept as civil as possible.

The Archondum is an assembly of loosely associated Outlander & Local born Dwarves independently overseeing the protection and furtherment of Dwarven interests beyond the scope or capability of his majesty King Moloch from within Dvergeheim.

Alignment: None.
Races: Despite being a Dwarven centric faction, the Archondum is welcome to anyone but if a little skeptical to someone who isn't a Dwarf.
Classes: None.
Other Requirements: The ability to speak Dwarven.

Organization & Activities
The Assembly of Archons, also known as the Archondum, is the voting body of the faction - the Council of Three Hammers their elected leaders. Although the sovereign kingdom of Dvergeheim retains its respective leaders and government (under the executive control of King Moloch), it is the Assembly of Archons that has seen to independently charge itself with overseeing the protection and furtherment of wider Dwarven interests beyond the capability of his majesty.

Our community offers those with an interest in a more dwarf-centric political system a place to conduct business and debate. The main goal of the Archondum, however, is to provide ease of access to political RP / Dwarven RP with those who wish to work with and around dwarves, as well as a place to coordinate dwarven activities and events.

The assembly meets every two weeks within their hall in Dvergeheim where they are led through discussions by their triad of Councilors and held to account by their Arbitrator whom maintains a strict adherence to their charter.

The Archondum is one of the few factions blessed with the constant presence of an ever present RP challenge and opportunity in trying to settle the matter of the quakes within the mountain. Apart from this the Archondum often plays host to trade festivals, martial patrols, expeditions, and the like – the avenues are limitless.

Getting Involved
See our posters in-game to learn how to get in touch In-character or you can message the Dvergeheim channel within the POTM discord for a temporary invite into the factions discord so you can keep tabs on when we meet.

Valey Neuve


Not truly a faction per se as a Dementlieuse political philosophy gradually materialising into a party, "Valey Neuve" (or "New Valey") is named after Emeric Desrosier, grandson of the Marquis of Valey, and represents not so much a political evolution, as old ideas taken up with genuine fervour, youthful idealism, and an eye towards modern methods and implementation (though the latter in particular makes the older, more settled generations regard them with a degree of mistrust and scepticism).

Their stance on many issues is demarked by a pragmatic, conservative approach that nonetheless strives towards a philanthropic expression of nobility. Their views on a number of issues, in brief: innately pro-Republic (thus equally anti-monarchist), counter-Revolutionary (and hence classist), a defensive Fabian mindset towards Falkovnia, open to outreterriens (outlanders) finding a place in the Republic as long as they have earned it, a certain scepticism towards the Borcan Grain Deal as a dangerous single point of failure in the nation's food strategy, all fed fundamentally by a desire to create a strong, stable society.

While avidly opposed to Revolution, "Valey Neuve" has been accused of being reformist, a charge its adopters fervently deny -- they see themselves as restorers, boldly upholding the legacy of Leon in a new, difficult age.

Emeric Desrosiers and Sieur Dorian de Sauvre are the two of the most prominent nobles in this party.

Eligible Members:
Primarily Human, any non-Outcast.

Classes: Any, though Sorcerors and Hexblades will probably have to keep things on the down low.

Alignments: LN, TN, LG, NG. Chaotic or Evil individuals will have to keep their more extreme impulses in check.

Themes: Politics; small-c political conservatism; noblesse oblige taken seriously; tradition vs. innovation; idealism vs. pragmatism; "filthy centrism".

Interested? Contact:
 - Dorian de Sauvre (Yours truly)
 - Emeric Desrosiers (Shelved for now)

The Church of Kelemvor

Death is but a part of life;
Fear it not,
Evade it not,
And view it not as evil.

Summary: The purpose of The Church of Kelemvor is to provide an place to roleplay being faithful to Kelemvor and Jergal as part of an organized, structured group. As such, this faction encompasses a very wide variety of roles. Outwardly the Church of Kelemvor is a peaceful charity organization, seeking to reduce the suffering of those around them. Working to maintain the Graveyards around the Vallaki area in cohesion with Hollow Halls Mortuary and to temper their own faith.

On the inside, the Church of Kelemvor maintains a rigid ranking and tutor structure where newly initiated are trained by those whom have been within the Order for a longer period of time. They seek out the Undead and Necromancers of the realm with the express purpose of destroying them as their practices and very existence harms balance and brings suffering onto the world.

Members of the Church are expected to follow the charge of Kelemvor and use it to better themselves in both the short and long term. In doing so, neutrality is demanded. The Church of Kelemvor must be able to operate freely between borders, tend to the wounded, dying, and dead. Seek out Undead in the far corners of the Core and maneuver outside of politics without drawing the eyes of the local governments.

Roleplay Opportunity Examples:

  • A gravekeeper or gardener from Toril, seeking to tend to the various graveyards around the Vallaki area.
  • A cleric or Paladin to Kelemvor or Jergal wishing to return to service in a temple that reminds them of home.
  • Newly converted members of the faithful to Kelemvor or Jergal joining as an initiate to further their knowledge and support the charge of these gods.
  • Healers seeking the protection of the church while practising their trade safely and away from hostilities in war time.
  • Anyone who wishes to partake in and serve a religious order to better themselves and steel their faith.

Classes: While we sport a majority of Clerics and Paladins, any class is acceptable excepting the use of Necromancy.
Levels: All level ranges are accepted.
Alignments: Lawful Good / Neutral. Neutral Good / True Neutral are preferred. As the Church is rigidly structured, Lawful characters may enjoy their time more.
Languages: Common. Celestial is the language of the Gods and is often used in prayer, knowing this language is helpful to your character in the church but not required.

What to expect: Weekly roleplay events in Vallaki surrounding the Temple in the Warehouse District. Training on how to identify and slay the various types of undead which plague the core. To learn the charge of Kelemvor and Jergal while supporting their dogma through various actions around the Core. To take part in a rigid ranking structure within the Court of the Dead, beginning with Initiate and ending in higher clerical roles such as Doomguide or the Grim-Knight.

How to Join: One can join by seeking out current members of the Church and expressing interest in service to the temple and the gods such as Grim-Knight Aeric Sunward or Ordermaster Ramon Bhakul. One can also set up their induction through directly contacting either of these players in a forum PM or Discord.

- Ordermaster Ramon Bhakul, Holgard - Discord: Holgard#1836
- Doomguide Ariana Verant, Farhorizon - Discord: farhorizon#4886

Folk come here a'treading to a woeful wedding...


This grand home in Vallaki, once used for less-than-honest pursuits, is now a house of knowledge, death, and reverence. Hollow Halls provides funerary services to the public with a stress on honoring tradition.
Dealing with remains, sometimes in an investigative capacity, is a staple activity. Memorials and wakes are also hosted within the facility, and living wills and life chronicles are kept under lock and key in the deeper annals of the domicile.

Though most would consider it unorthodox, there is an emphasis on the arts within the organisation. Sagas and ballads are written to commemorate the lives of those who conquered, protected, and overcame great odds. The dead are lulled to their rest by poetry, and kept a'slumber by song.
Gundarakites who shun their rebellious cousins, and instead, wish to revive their arts and traditions may be inclined to visit upon the halls.

Dealing with the undead is inevitable, the morbid nature of the work considered. Though, not all of these encounters are liable to be hostile: where druids bond with animals, associates of this organisation may come to empathise with the dead. The settling of 'unfinished business' is stressed before an inch of steel is drawn. And, in the case of ancient and noteworthy beings, an account of their life may be sought before they are put to their final rest.

Alignment: Any are welcome to try their luck, but openly chaotic or evil behaviour may not sail.
Races: Any non-outcast.
Classes: In this faction, the character's profession is more important than their class.
Priests and laymen of relevant deities[1], chroniclers, morticians, historians, physickers, barber surgeons, graveyard keepers, exorcists, tortured artists, poets, story-tellers and minstrels will all find a place here.
Class suggestions include, but are not limited to: rogues, bards, monks, wizards, clerics, and voodans. Dirgist training is available, and there is potential for Monster Hunter training (specialisation in undead).

There is no hierarchy, but members tend to gravitate towards one of two areas within the organisation: the dead, and rites pertaining to the dead (exorcism, burial, funerals, embalming), or the celebration of life (through chronicles, accounts, poetry, song, music).
Player initiative is key, though there are 'continuous' projects that can be worked on during down-time.

See our posters here and in-game to learn how to get in touch IC. You can also DM us via Discord for OOC queries.

The Order of The Crow

Summary: The Order of the Crow is a free military order, sworn to the protection of the realm and innocence. We do not distinguish from one's gods, noble house, nation or blood. We do not participate in the wars and politics that fracture the realm, and leave all of us weaker to the true evil.

Our duty is to the realm and innocence as a whole. We know that the true evil, such as the Undead, werewolves and vampires would want to kill all living regardless of creed, god or calling. And such are the true enemies of the living.

All who join our order are sworn to our cause. They take the grey and black cloak signifying their oath taking and duty to the realm. We who take this oath, no longer live for our selves, but for the realm, and for each other. We are more then comrades in arms, we are the wall of men and women who do what we can to hold back the horde of evil. We share a bond only those in combat, and in life long commitment to each other and to the innocence of the realm experience.

Those who wish to join our brotherhood, take heed. This is not a commitment to take lightly. One must be an outstanding citizen, with a clean record and good reputation. Every opportunity to prepare you for our cause is provided. Equipment, armor, weapons are given. There is a place for all who wish to serve the realm. Whether you be a warrior, craftsmen, or learned man of the arts. There is a place for all within the Order of The Crow.

We are not a mercenary company, and do not seek glory and riches. Our reward is the safety of those we protect, every life saved, every new dawn, and every opportunity to hold back the true evil.

Races: The Order of the Crow welcomes members of most common races: humans, elves, dwarves, gnomes and halflings form  the bulk of the brotherhood. Outcast races: half-orcs, calibans, drow, half-drow, duergar, and tieflings are not accepted. Other unusual races will be subject to a case-by-case approval after confering with other ranked members.
Classes: All classes are welcome to join the Order.
Alignments: All applying must be neutral or good aligned, and none criminal. And be willing to be properly vetted.
Notes: This faction is for RP primarily. This group is not an antagonistic faction and not engage in player vs player (PvP) confrontations. Characters of any levels are welcome, though the faction is aimed toward low to mid-level characters. While this group is inspired and based upon the Night's Watch from the Game of Thrones series, the faction is not as strict as the Night's Watch. Characters will never be asked to renounce their houses, faith (so long as it is non-evil), avoid relationships or marriage, and characters that need to take a leave of absence or leave the faction (Whether this is due to In-Character, or Out-Of-Character reasons) will not be killed/closured for doing so and are free to leave the faction at any time.

Themes and expected challenges: Being that the faction is an Outlander-based faction, the normal stigmas applied to Outlanders can be expected at times or if characters are non-human and experience negative reactions from native characters. So long as members are not actively doing anything In-Character that violate the Crow's core values, do not knowingly associate with evil beings or creatures, or do criminal activity you will have few worries (outside of the normal dangers of the world).

Getting involved: Let those who wish to take upon themselves this duty, seek out Knights Commander Jerick Snow, Senior Officer Elene, or First Office Patter. Or feel free to contact any member of the the Crow, who wear the black and grey cloak, and raven shield.

Contacts: Feel free to contact me on discord at Riggs#8271 with questions Thanks!

“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”

The Order of the Sacred Rose is an ecumenical Christian group sworn by oaths to God to protect the innocent, fight evil, feed the hungry, help newcomers, and rescue souls trapped in this dark realm. They’ve sprouted from the old Christian Orders that traveled the Core, blossoming like a rose from their roots, not forgetting them. They are knights, clergy, and laity—Gothic Earth Christians and converts alike—united with a small non-Christian auxiliary, the Knights Honoris, under the aegis of Christ’s Church of Barovia.

Members are called to charity and compassion just as much as combat. Knights, clerics, and laity may be seen working in the church’s infirmary, roaming the land to help those in need, battling monsters, and delving the far reaches of the Demiplane of Dread to confront the powers of evil.

They are warriors, priests, healers, diplomats, tradesfolk, and scholars, all walking as they’re called. And all are called to stand against the forces of darkness however they can.

Any, although the political climate of Vallaki prevents Drow, Tieflings, and Tanarukks from becoming a squire or knight.

Any except Assassin, Blackguard, Pale Master, Hallowed Witch, and Warlock. Hexblades are potentially viable but will struggle with faction requirements. Voodan and Druids who convert run the risk of losing the powers and abilities granted by those classes.

Any non-evil. Chaotic characters, especially Chaotic Neutral, will likely struggle with the required discipline, but there have been successful chaotic characters. Neutral characters should expect to find their alignment shifting toward good or risk themselves shifting toward dismissal from the faction.

As a prerequisite for being inducted into the Order of the Sacred Rose, the character must be a Christian. (Denomination or branch isn’t important.) Non-Christian characters who want to play in the faction are eligible to petition for induction into the Knights Honoris auxiliary provided there are open slots for them.

This faction replaces the old Christian Orders faction.

Themes and Expected Challenges:
Christianity, loyalty, duty, faith, monster-hunting, knighthood, healing, diplomacy and politics, compassion, honor

Members are expected to act wisely and pursue goodness, purity, restraint, honesty, discipline, humility, courage, and compassion. Everyone is called to abide by the law and uphold just laws as much as possible. The actions of one reflect upon all.

This can be challenging and lead to conflict or politically fraught IC situations. We encourage our players to keep a level head and respect their fellow players (allies and antagonists) as these stories unfold.

Getting Involved:
Find a knight or squire (grey tabard with a gold cross), an officer (red tabard with a white cross), or the grandmaster (white tabard with a gold cross) in game. Alternatively, visit the Christ’s Church in Warehouse Two, Vallaki.

Contacts: Prelate-Grandmaster Vandryn Carro, played by Famous Seamus (Famous Seamus#3915 on Discord).

Order of the Sacred Rose Forums:
Main Faction Discord:

Other Questions:

Spoiler: show
Do I have to be a Christian IRL to join? Will I be expected to become one?

No. Our players come from many backgrounds.

Are you going to preach to me? Are you here to proselytize?

No. Given the nature of the RP, OOC conversations about faith do come up. Players can explore the faith as much as they want, but OOC preaching isn’t the aim. If a player becomes interested in the faith by playing in or interacting with the faction, that’s their personal choice. Extensive or debate-y OOC conversations about religion occur only via PM or in a tightly moderated section of our Discord.

Will religious prayers, ceremonies, and acts come up IC?

Yes. We stress that these are a performance strictly in character. While rites and prayers in the game may reflect or borrow from IRL Christian tradition, they aren’t the equivalent.

Your characters don’t act exactly like historical Christians. What’s up with that?

Three reasons: (1) ecumenical group spanning nearly 16 centuries and a gallimaufry of historical perspectives, (2) presence of non-Earth converts in the group, and (3) desire to avoid OOC concerns and grief over hot-button topics. The goal is to maximize fun and offer room to explore variations of the faith without causing OOC hardship.

Do I have to make a Gothic Earth character to join?

No. Converts are welcome, although Clerics and Paladins who convert should be aware that there can be IC consequences and required processes for changing faith.

Does my character have to become a knight or clergy after they join?

No, although we always like seeing more knights and clerics!

Do I have to play a martial or full-BAB character class to join one of the militant orders and become a knight?

No. Knighthood in our faction is more about ideals and a way of life than martial prowess.

If you have other questions, contact a member of the faction or feel free to message our Discord.

The Vallaki Review

Re: Player-Created Faction Guide
« Reply #10 on: January 14, 2023, 05:23:04 PM »

Established in the year 777, The Vallaki Review has published weekly and free broadsheets featuring news, opinion, and investigative work by its reporters. A relatively moderate publication in comparison to its Barovian competitors, The Vallaki Review is written with a primarily Vallaki audience in mind, attempting to appeal to both the local Barovian population and the outlander class. The Vallaki Review is known to occasionally publish special issues of fresh news, alongside more in-depth features on local life.

Races: Publicly, only Barovian-acceptable races are presumed to write for The Vallaki Review. Privately...who knows?
Classes: Any class can handle the RP of being involved in a newspaper. Naturally, stealthy or social builds might be able to find more information.
Alignments: Just as in real life, workers in the news industry can be good or evil. Good characters may find themselves in danger if the truth threatens great evils, and evil characters may find their behavior unwelcome within a reputable organization.

Notes: The newspaper can involve many types, and PCs need not act as reporters. Any role that fits can be welcome, such as investigators, legal aids, town criers/newspaper hawkers, representatives, sponsors, and so on... Members need not be fully dedicated to the paper, and may even contribute only in small ways. Nor do members need to be based in Vallaki, foreign correspondents and investigators are welcome, should there be good reason for it IC.

All that truly matters is the RP your character puts in. Unlike many factions, most of those involved in the paper will likely work largely independently in whatever capacity they see fit, though this is not set in stone and may change depending on circumstance.

Themes and expected challenges:
Themes - Investigation, intrigue, independent work. Also writing, socializing, politics.

The Cult of Pazrael

The Cult of Pazrael is a close-knit affiliation of pious folk dedicated to the radiant light of the angel Pazrael. They say he listens to the pleas of those with the purest hearts, to offer his gentle aid in times of deepest darkness and despair. His faithful, saints and sinners alike, seek to spread his name and influence far and wide, in the hopes of salvation.

But the well of truth is deep indeed, and the truths of Pazarael might prove more eldritch than one might imagine. All is best discovered in character. But beware: the brighter a flame burns, the darker the shadows it casts.

Races: Any and all.
Classes: Any and all.
Alignments: All alignments are welcome.
Notes: There will be a lot of find out in character information for those that pray to Pazrael.
Themes and expected challenges:
Occultism, religious horror, mystery, corruption

Getting involved:
Those who find themselves in the pits of despair can either listen for several people speaking about Pazrael in various parts of the core or they can message me on forum / discord.

The Brotherhood of the Golden Shilling

Summary: A pair of mercenaries are snatched from their realm of Faerûn and transported into the wastelands of Barovia.
They decide to rebuild their old band of mercenaries, the Brotherhood of the Golden Shilling.
Their goal is to build a guild of mercenaries actively engaged by governments and large local groups.

Races: Any welcome.

Classes: Any welcome.

Alignments:All except the chaotic evil. For them it will be necessary to have an interview first, to understand their real intentions.

Notes: We do dirty work, escort services, bounty hunting, protection of all kinds, but we are not killers and we do not take contracts to kill.
We act on the thin line of legality (not always...)

Themes: We offer an extremely varied type of game: we go from espionage to reinforcement in dungeons, from smaller contracts with private individuals to larger contracts with structured groups and governments.
Very likely to have active PVP.

Getting involved: You can easily find us in the game, especially in the Vallaki/Barovia area, but also near Dyad.
You can recognize us by the golden armor and black cloaks.
Or you can write me directly on the forum or Discord(Rav#3968).

The Grey Vigil

The Grey Vigil represents the organized church of Helm within the Core.  It provides temple services (healing, potions), martial training, and room & board to the faithful and those they protect.  Who is Helm?  Helm is the Vigilant One, his faithful, called Watchers.  He is regarded as an unflinching and dedicated deity given over to the protection of others, and the watch for the foe.  Where others regard Him as cold, He is merely dedicated in His work, and puts it above all other concerns.  It is said Helm would die before He allowed someone under His protection come to harm.  He is silent on the matter, but such is the ideal that His Watchers aspire to.

Currently, the Grey Vigil operates mostly out of Vallaki and Midway Haven.

Races: Any, but races that run inherently evil like Drow and Tieflings will have both suspicion from the organization and the region, at least until they prove themselves; the same holds especially true for inherently-chaotic races.  Those bountied or banished from Barovian jurisdictions may be turned away until they regain their good standing.
Classes: Any except barbarians and hallowed witches.  Black powder avengers, druids, warlocks, and hexblades may find the faith challenging.  Lawful evil is an entirely valid alignment for Helm, since Helm is Lawful Neutral [1], so Blackguards are permitted, provided they follow the dogma of Helm.
Alignments: Any lawful; neutral will generally be fine so long as they do not challenge the order of things.  Chaotic individuals will likely have issues.  Clerics must be LG, LN, LE, or TN.
Notes: Clerics of Helm may never command undead. [1]  Those whom do not follow Helm themselves, but are aligned with His purpose of protection, are in good standing with Barovia, and do not violate His tenets, are welcomed as Auxiliaries. 

Ley followers are encouraged; you don't have to want to be a priest or paladin to join.

Themes and expected challenges:
Helm's dogma is rigid and unflinching in its protection of others and it should be expected that those join be willing to sacrifice to protect those they care for.  Services are occasionally held when numbers permit that focus on the improvement of discipline and martial ability, as well as scholasticism.  Followers are expected to report things of interest.  Expeditions and patrols are also held, to uphold His Vigilance.

In short: there are two major focusses of the faction: religious roleplay both in formal events and at large, and delving dungeons/patrolling.  A heavy emphasis on self-improvement lies in both, since that is among His tenets.

Getting involved:
Lay followers will have few requirements other than initial vetting; clerics and paladins will be expected to be able to recite the dogma of Helm and prove themselves to it, in some way.

Those interested can seek out Livu in game, or feel free to simply show up at services and inquire before their beginning or after their end; most services are not private.

Livu Olmstead: PM here, or Maiyannah ingame for tells.
Discord: PM on discord Maiyannah#6113 for an invite.

A forum is presently awaiting DM supervision and thus pending.

A staple of the Quartier Marchand's sleazier corners, the name 'Fantaisies Luciniennes' finds itself on the lips of many; for better or worse. The establishment specializes in all sorts of vices, from games of chance, alcoholic enjoyment, to its most popular display - its troupe of performers. Prone to displays of risqué, satirical, and politically-critical theatre, it is a surprise that many of the clientele find themselves spending their days amidst noble peers. One might even say they cater to variety, at the Cabaret Fantaisies Luciniennes.

Races: Primarily Dementlieuse human commonfolk, other socially-acceptable races welcome. Certain outcasts may get away with it.
Classes: Any, barring outwardly grotesque classes such as Palemaster or Dragon Disciple.
Alignments: Any, though goodly alignments may find issue at times.
Themes: Gambling, performance, hustling, political conflict, struggles between classes, crime and the underworld.

Getting Involved:
To get involved, feel free to attend any performance, any opening of the space, or even leave a note with our sweet NPC bartender!
Check to see if we are open here, as we do sit around for IC entertainment often!

Vallaki Municipal Hospice

The Vallaki Hospice is always looking for more players. It is located in the middle of the slums district of Vallaki, where it has been used to quietly help the most poor and downtrodden people of the city. This venue of roleplay is strongly related to the setting, meaning that magic is not often used for healing, conditions are poor, and the night is feared. A worker in the hospice is maybe unlikely to directly participate in the heroics of other adventurers, and carefulness and common sense is fundamental to keeping the hospice safe and operational. Herbalists, chirurgeons, priests, doctors, nurses… essentially healers of all thinkable backgrounds can be eligible to work at the hospice. Apprentices are also naturally sought after, as would be common in a medieval culture. Given the dangers of the Night and the cruelties of mortals, those willing to defend the hospice and its healers also have a place.

A hospice is typically known for palliative care, which means that their patients are so sick they will likely not recover and in some cases they may only hope to find comfort until their passing. However our RP also covers both chronic, yet not terminal care as well as healing curable ailments. We gladly welcome healing RP brought to us by other PCs, and enjoy supporting others storylines in this way.

Races: Any non-outcasts are welcome as members. Roleplay with outcasts is welcomed but due to the laws and prejudices of Vallaki outcasts will not be accepted as open members.
Classes: Any, although characters with Heal skill will find great RP use out of it.
Alignments: Any Good or Neutral PCs should fit in well. Chaotic PCs less so, depending on their willingness to support the Hospice's rules for its safety. Evil PCs may struggle to be accepted, although with clever play and cunning anything is possible.
Notes: The faction is Vallaki based, although does not have a strict requirement for involved PCs to remain there, nor is it native only. Most faction RP and events will take place in Vallaki, or related to it, however.

Themes and expected challenges:
The Hospice faction has the following themes:
- Low magic healing and medical RP. The static patients of the Hospice are drawn from local people who will not tolerate "vraja" and are often terminally or chronically ill. The theme of treating them is very much mundane techniques and this forms the background RP of the Hospice Faction and is our "Purpose" from which to RP a healing character.
- "Healer" support for other PC's plotlines. Scenes where we treat other PCs are often the most fun and rewarding. Members can expect to interact with other PCs in this regard from time to time and we emphasise being respectful of other people's plotlines and inclinations on healing RP when interacting with them.
- Charity and Fundraising. Our events largely revolve around raising funds for charity or distributing the same. Some of this goes to support herbalism training (below) but we also RP giving out food, both regularly in the hospice and as part of larger charity initiatives.
- Herbalism and healing expertise. The faction offers training, guidance, and material support to its members and others in order to improve as healers. This is mechanically represented by herbalism, but also covers RP initiatives. We RP extensively with other factions in Vallaki who also heal the sick.
- Fear of Old Noapte. Many of the faction members are not warriors, and those who are have some very vulnerable people under their care. The Hospice building has strict rules on interacting with the night.
- Ethics and Faith RP. The hospice is non-denominational, but many of the members are drawn from a faith background, and ethical and philosophical discussions are quite common!
- Local Politics and Culture. As a faction in Vallaki, and within Barovia's oppressive environment, that tends to lean towards charity and compassion, the question of what is "right" often clashes with the law of the land or political considerations. We also form part of the wider milieu of Vallaki RP.
- Guarding. Both the building and the healers! There's RP for a warrior seeking a purpose that isn't directly violent.

Getting involved: Our members are often in the Outskirts buying herbs and offering healing potions for sale. We can also be found in the Hospice when the candle outside is lit. The Vallaki - Slums rumour thread is usually where a rumour is posted indicating the Hospice itself is open.

Hospice members can also be reached by letters left at the Hospice, IE by IC forum PM.

Katayama Enterprises

Katayama Enterprises is an mercantile power that is emerging from Port-a-Lucine's world of business and finances. What started out as a brother and sisters bid for notoriety in a strange city, has become an hive of various businesses and investments. The individuals within the enterprise obviously have their own goals but there is one major goal that stands above all others: Ensure the prosperity and success of Clan Katayama one of Rokushima-Taiyoo's noble Samurai House. The company is sponsored by the Bellegarde Consortium and so far it seems unwilling to slow down in it's expansion and dealings. Currently Katayama Enterprises has the following businesses under its oversight:

Katayama Steel & Silk ~ The first business forged together by brother and sister team: Katayama Yasutsugi and Katayama Momoko. The business has served as the primary business for the family for a long time and encompassed the services and abilities of any other trading company. It started with home-made crafts smithed wares made by Yasutsugi and Clothing made by Katayama Momoko. Eventually the focus of the business shifted towards Consignment sales and has seen great success. Crafts were slowly phased out save for adamantine services. This business is most famously known for it's 'Grand Auction' that is held every couple of months and has historically seen lucrative turn out. Today Katayama Steel & Silk serves as a trading company with its focus on acquisitions.

Shotaru's Rokuman Delights ~ Shotaru's Rokuman Delights is Clan Katayama's second venture into the business world and has served as a point of publicity for the family. Famous for it's unusual foreign cuisine, but also for it's sumo wrestling matches hosted frequently. The restaurant has served greatly as a base of operations for the family. Shotaru's Rokuman Delights is named after one of the Eldest sons of Clan Katayama: Katayama Shotaru. Today, Shotaru's Rokuman Delights is operational hosting Sumo Wrestling every other monday night.

Endymion's Intrepid Expeditions ~ One of Katayama Enterprises more recent connections; Endymion's Intrepid Expeditions is an exploration and resource locating company created when INTREPID explorer Vesnia Endymion entered a business contract with Katayama Yasutsugi. The result has created an educational, as well as lucrative venture. For the most part the business is run entirely by Vesnia Endymion's self while she receives financial backing from Katayama Enterprises.

Races: Most races are welcome. this is best determined on a case by case. If a character can freely walk around Port they are eligible. Rokuman humans can see special rewards.
Classes: All classes are welcome.
Alignments: Lawful alignments will do best.

Themes and expected challenges:
The primary theme of Katayama Enterprises varies between those involved and between which businesses they decide to involve themselves into. Katayama Steel & Silk provides a trading company experience that deals with acquisitions, sometimes crafts, and consignment. More senior members of this business may find themselves part of the Adamantine trade that is overseen by Katayama Yasutsugi. Shotaru's Rokuman Delights is more of a hospitality focused business based on events and entertainment. The restaurant is occasionally opened for casual roleplay, but serves as the primary location for all Katayama Enterprises events. While the premise of the faction is on the focus of one noble family, the premise of the RP focuses more greatly on the individuals who get involved. The primary themes and challenges include: business, & competition though other themes may occur depending on the character. The faction serves as a vehicle for players to build themselves up, an opportunity for those involved.

Getting involved:
There is a couple of ways to get involved:

1) Creating a member of Clan Katayama ~ Family members of Clan Katayama have a lot of stake in Katayama Enterprises as the company itself exists for the sole purpose of fueling the Clan Katayama war machine in service to the Shujin of Rokushima-Taiyoo's North Eastern island. Clan Katayama Characters can expect to use Katayama Enterprises to further their own goals which more often than not include mastering their personal philosophy (example: earning the title of Samurai/Geisha/Shinobi). (If you wish to play a Katayama family member it will require approval from yours truly. Feel free to message me with your concept!)

2) Being Hired by Katayama Enterprises ~ Existing characters can be hired into one of the organizations many routes. Katayama Steel and Silk is business opportunity for those looking for a trading company experience with a twist. Joining simply involves an interview process at this point and in some cases a written contract IC. Common jobs available include agent jobs for Steel and Silk, Restaurant Staff, Sumo Wrestlers, and scholars for Endymion's Intrepid Expeditions.

3) Acquiring Sponsorship with Katayama Enterprises ~ Existing characters with businesses can negotiate with the enterprise for the benefits of sponsorship that will also put them in the attention of the Bellegarde Consortium. A means of getting involved while allowing someone to stand on their own two feet just a little more.

If interested please message this forum account, message this discord account: Meduegna#0794, or find Yasutsugi Katayama in game and talk to him.

The Crimson Enclave

The Crimson Enclave is formed by the controversial Rashemi mage Vasya Sarukina who was mentored by a Red Wizard of Thay in his youth, influencing the vision for the Enclave. What was originally a group of Rashemi Red Academy mages grew in part by utilizing Sarukina's position as Vizier of Nordhazlan and status as a powerful wizard of Hazlan to accumulate arcane knowledge, power, and wealth. Diverse interests united a clique of Rashemi wizards in a Mulan-dominated in a world they were once slaves, serfs, or lessers to finding themselves in societal positions of power and authority. The members of the Enclave have diverse interests, but they share a desire to rise above their former positions as slaves, serfs, or lesser beings in a society dominated by Mulan. The group seeks cooperation and is amenable to outsiders with shared interest in stark contrast to the Academy and Church of the Lawgiver with an openness uncommon in Hazlan in a pragmatic fashion with mercenaries and warriors finding use in allying with these mages and working toward their mutual self-interest.

Races: Primarily human with some non-humans. Hazlani, especially Academy members will excel. Blooded Caliban permitted, other outcasts by case by case basis.
Classes: Any.
Alignments: Lawful-leaning, non-good.

Themes and expected challenges:
Primary themes will involve mage-related roleplay such as arcane study, research, accumulation of knowledge. The group is about utilizing a measure of independence to pursue goals and ambitions in Hazlan by operating inside and outside Hazlan. Sarukina being a Vizier also pushes the group to diplomatic overtures and business on behalf of the Vraylok Ossur Kyrillian and currying favor with social elites in Hazlani society as well as conducting business with outsider groups where they are welcome such as Port-a-Lucine or Har-Thelen where Academy members are retained by the mayor. The group is a vehicle to organize Academy-non Academy mage roleplay and collaboration given restrictions of official factions. It is also a tool for non-Hazlani to get involved in Hazlan without being a native within reason.

Being abnormal or acting outside the confines of Hazlani setting can have consequences if one is not mindful of how they carry themselves or behave in settlements, therefore those with higher OCR or standing that could harm them ICly should be aware there can be consequences for such characters.

Getting involved:
Being a Red Academy member who seeks to conduct activities outside of Hazlan and is on favorable terms with its members.
Contacting Vasya Sarukina, a Red Academy Graduate with some political influence in Hazlan.
Being hired as a mercenary or bodyguard by its members.
Seeking cooperation and collaboration in arcane or scholarly topics.

The Ebon Spire
Arcane Theorists of the Null Moon

Summary: The Ebon Spire is a collection of scholars and mages. This group of cunning minds and ulterior motives progress a central goal of studying and understanding the Nuitari and the long shadows of Sithicus.

To those who take interest shall heed these words.  Know thyself, and know well.  As that is the only shield against the cascade of mind-hungry visages throughout the Land of Spectres.  Those who become shaken in the foundation of their being will find themselves moldering in the ever-hungry chasm beneath Nedragaard Keep.

Races: Sithican elves are the most natural fit, but the Tower of Har-Thelen is oddly welcoming to dissidents and outcasts of all wakes of life.

Classes: Scholarly concepts but especially so arcane classes, such as wizards. Blooded mages are regarded with skepticism. Characters interested in Shadows, Arcane magic, and Sithican History will fit the best.

Alignments: Evil characters of all kinds fit best for the Machiavellian mindset. Neutral and good aligned characters may find their moral fortitude tested.

Notes: Uncovering the secrets of Sithicus can come at a high risk to one’s character. Tread carefully and trust no one.

Themes and expected challenges: Shadows, magical study, unethical experimentation, elven society, internal strife/politics, and scheming.

Getting involved: Seek entry into the Tower of Har-Thelen and an audience with its members within.
