Legacy of the Forlorn
The defense of the world wound has caused great losses of life for those men and women dedicated to the fight against the encroaching abyss. The continual loss of life may be coming to an end however. A cleric of a minor god has managed to create a means to revive those men and women slain by the hordes of the Abyss. Located in the keep at Nerosyan there is a chapel that is dedicated to the perseverance of those men and women fighting to protect the world. When heroes of pure heart and intention are found amongst the warriors defending the breach they are asked to take the vows of protection and passage in the chapel, signing their names to the divine contract stating their intention to defend the world from any invasions from the abyss. Each of these pure heroes has also been asked to leave a keepsake behind, something small and personal, with a special meaning only to them in the chapel. While this does not seem to be of much significance at the time, if they ever fall in battle, their souls will return to the chapel and they are resurrected by the magic within. There are only enough shelves in the chapel to house 1000 keepsakes at a time, and currently there are only 786 warriors in the Eternal Legion. While the lure of this promise has prompted a huge number of applicants to request admittance, choice as to who is allowed into the legion has little to do with standing, wealth, or prior heroic deeds, but more with the character of those who are part of the legion.
