Arachnin Training Packages

Copyright Glen E Terry, 2000

The Nightblade (L):

The Nightblade is a character who has been trained since he was very young to be the ultimate assassin and spy for the purpose of fighting the forces of unlife. His training has included ancient concealing magics and the skills of killing and observing without being detected. The Nightblade Clan does not look kindly on this training being misused or its secrets being disclosed. To do so invites immediate reprisals of a vicious and deadly kind. The Nightblade train their members to operate independently for long periods of time. Although they are assassins and spies, they have their own code of honor, and defend friends and allies with fierce devotion.

"Not everyone can do the kind of work as we do, because most are weak. This doesn't mean they are worthless, they simply have not seen the shadow path. That is why we must follow the path we must walk in shadow, so that the whole world is not swallowed by it. When the world comes to an end, we will stand before the great council fires of our forefathers. They will ask, "Who among you had the courage to fight the darkness?" and we will step forward and answer: "We fought the shadows, Our Fathers, and we have the scars to prove it."
