AEGIS, THE GOD OF WAR - Achaea Online Help
11.7.1 AEGIS, THE GOD OF WAR
Plagued by His past and the harm done to His family, the Lord of War returned to Sapience to once again pass His craft on to those willing to learn. Serving under His appointed Generals, His soldiers engage in the study of the rules of warfare and the strategies employed within each conflict. Every victory has a lesson to be learned, and every defeat presents new challenges for His army to overcome. Choosing to not limit His numbers to those who excel at combat, he has opened His expertise to any who seek knowledge in war. His teachings have been separated into three distinct paths, each one dependent on the others for any victory the army achieves. Path of the Blade - Expertise in combat is necessary for the victory in any war, and those who pursue the path of the Blade seek to perfect their deadly art. A strong sense of duty and a passion for success drives the Blades to become the dominant force on any battlefield. Path of the Hawk - The eyes of the Hawk are keen, surveying all before them and planning their next move with careful precision. Those seeking the future positions in espionage, diplomacy, military intelligence, or certain tradeskills will find their place in this path. Path of the Lion - The true symbol of warfare, the Lion is a proud animal that attacks with unrelenting ferocity when pushed too far. The students of the Lion are the symbol by which other soldiers try to live by and provide inspiration to those the army serves. Given the mantle of handling army morale, strategy, and general leadership of the troops, those serving in this path must give themselves in all forms to the realm of War. Those seeking His order must be ready to assume the role of the soldier, choosing to leave personal gain behind for the good of the army. Any seeking individual fame need not apply, for a soldier is focused merely on the success of His peers and His General. There is no clear type who the Lord of War searches for, but it is rumoured that he has trained anyone willing to learn the strategies of His realm despite beliefs. Good and evil have no place in His army; instead, His followers seek only to learn the craft and use it in whatever challenges they choose to pursue.
