The Shadowsfall LARP Faction
In all four corners of Orin Rakatha you will find a Shadowsfall Tower. Two of the towers will overlap their jurisdiction for each area of the land. The tower in the North East covers the Northern and Eastern areas of Orin rakatha, the Tower in the South East covers the Southern and Eastern lands, the North West the Northern and Western areas and the South west the Southern and Western sections of the world. This way every region of the world will have Shadowsfall from two towers patrolling the regions.
Normally a Grey tabard with a shield motif on its front (shield is red/burgundy and black halves with a white and black circle in the centre. Shadowsfall tabards can be hired from Herofest if required.
The Shadowsfall were the first travelers to arrive upon Orin Rakatha. Prior to their arrival, Orin Rakatha was a land of Mistweavers and Mystics. The Shadowsfall were recruited by the Mystics to aid them in their struggle against the Mistweavers. By the Mystics power and the Shadowsfall’s efforts, the Orin Rakatha that we know today was forged. The Mystics made the Shadowsfall the custodians of the laws of Orin Rakatha. The Great Archive of the Shadowsfall (if it exists!), is rumoured to contain records of all significant events that have happened upon Orin Rakatha since their arrival. The Shadowsfall pride themselves on their neutrality.
The Shadowsfall claim to be the ancient law-keepers of the land of Orin Rakatha and are often found carrying out these duties. They are the oldest Towers on Orin Rakatha and have been around since its creation. They were first brought to Orin Rakatha to fight for the mystics in their war with the mistweavers. They also act as ‘honourable’ assassins for hire, who follow the strict terms of their contract until its completion. They are extremely lawful, never betray a contract and can be utterly ruthless. Most Towers have a relationship with the Shadowsfall based on caution with a hint of fear. The Shadowsfall tend not to become embroiled in the politics of Orin Rakatha and prefer to be seen as unbiased arbitrators. When members of the Shadowsfall are working on a contract they usually show this by the wearing of Tower symbols on their faces. Members of the Shadowsfall operate most effectively in small groups and normally employ hit and run tactics rather than all out assault (although they can employ these methods when required). They are extremely effective combatants who are generally, but not exclusively, of Neutral persuasion. Shadowsfall individuals can be extremely dangerous, more so than any other Tower. Members of the Shadowsfall tend to be Human, although they do have a small selection from the other races.
Diplomatic status with the other factions
The Shadowsfall will start events with neutrality towards all other factions. This of course may change on the event and your actions as the players will affect diplomatic relations on future events.
