The Spirit Walkers
Walking the precarious and, at times, dangerous bridge between the spiritual and material worlds, the Spirit Walkers hold the notion of balancing the path as paramount to survival. A false step in either direction can collapse the path, with all efforts, and even practitioners lost to other realms. An eclectic group of adventurers, the Spirit Walkers are selective of those initiated into their fold. They seek the deeper knowledge of a mystery tradition, a tradition involving clandestine rituals held deep within their Fortress that can shift reality as we know it. Descended from the original Shaman's guild, the Spirit Walkers have kept to their path as mediums and spiritual warriors, making contact with many groups of spirits. Among these are the Wlo, an ancient group of spirits that dates from before the fall of Seleucar, who demand adherence to strict, secret procedure. Several paths are available to the aspirant Spirit Walker. The Spiritual Warrior, trained in physical and spiritual combat alike, harnesses the power of knowledge, ritual, and combat to become a fearsome opponent. The Scholar delves into the knowledge of the past to produce the practical ritual theories of the future, as there is always more to learn and know about the Spirit realm. Finally, the Ritualist uses the innate ability as a medium to conduct communal or personal rituals, opening the gateway to the Spirit world to effect change in our own realm. Housed in Hashan, Crown of Ithmia, the Spirit Walker house serves as the religious group to the community, offering spiritual guidance, rituals, and services. Joining the Spirit Walkers comes with a hefty warning, however: Spirit Walkers must live by the code or die in their failure to do so. The oath you take to the Spirit Walker house and its traditions comes before all other oaths you may take.
