16.3.1 Writs and Vengeance

In the City of Yabon, an altar has been risen to the cold Mother Night, watching over pensioners. She takes a price of blood and gold - in return, offering the promise of death, and occasionally, the sanctified last rites of the Nighthawks.

To initiate a pact with the secretive Brotherhood of the Nighthawks through the altar, begin with:
   VENGEANCE UPON <person>

The price of blood and gold is set, with the promise of a swift death to your intended victim on full payment. You may use the following to see the status of payments whenever before the altar:
   VENGEANCE STATUS

Should you so decide, before your debt is paid, you have the choice to request the last rites of the Nighthawks. Requesting these comes at extraordinary costs, but the effects in turn are quite substantial. The last rites of trophy will disfigure the victim, leaving them bereft of a portion of their body and physically marred for a period of time. A curse is the equivalent of a Divine disfavor, instead placed upon the brow of the victim by Mother Night. Experience - the most demanding of all debts - removes a portion of the victim's level. It will also, on immediate payment of debt, place a curse on whomever sought vengeance.

   VENGEANCE SEEKING TROPHY OF FINGERS/TOES/SCALP FOR <days>
   VENGEANCE SEEKING EXPERIENCE OF PALTRY/WORTHY/SIGNIFICANT
   VENGEANCE SEEKING CURSE OF DISCOMFORT/PAIN/SUFFERING FOR <days>

On fulling paying your outstanding debt - by placing gold and blood inside the altar - the writ will be sent off to the Brotherhood for completion. You may not take another writ against this person until your previous one has been fulfilled.
