The Swords of Karrn
The Swords of Karrn are one of the many militias operating in Stormreach. Until recently, their base of operations was the Grindstone district, where they – under the leadership of Drago – imposed an extremely hard system of justice. Disturbing the peace in Grindstone could get you arrested, beaten, or even killed. However, some days ago, the Emerald Claw seized the city and Drago and his forces were scattered.
The swords revere Karrn the Conqueror, and believe that the Wynarn has grown weak over its thousand-year reign. Now they seek to reshape Khorvaire into a new nation ruled by their leader Drago. They recognize no law or authority except that of Drago himself.
While Drago and many of his followers are Karrnathi, they are not in league with Kaius, nor are they in league with the Blood of Vol or the Emerald Claw. Drago accepted the Blood of Vol and Emerald Claw presence in Grindstone because the district was home to many Karrnathi who revered the faith as well as its militant branch. Now that the Emerald Claw have shown their hand, however, Drago seeks their defeat in order to restore peace to Grindstone and Stormreach.
