Age of Heroes
Clan of Embers
The Clan of Embers is a loose alliance of barbaric and/or monstrous tribes. It is essentially a mutual-defense pact between tribes that might otherwise be squeezed-out or absorbed by the major civilizations.
The Clan generally appeals to barbarians, orcs, gnolls, goblins, giants, centaurs who believe that a the best defense is a good offense.
The Clan is notorious for ordering the destruction of border villages and banditry— all in the name of halting the slow civilization of the world’s more “lawless” areas.
