The Scourge

An excerpt from the meeting held at the GP dated Thursday 17th September 2009 @ 2.25am

“In medieval times ‘The Scourge’ were a group of kindred assigned the task of warding the borders of a controlling vassal. The role predominately involved being charged with the destruction of any kindred who failed to obey the ‘5th Tradition’ of hospitality, presentation of ones self to the controlling prince or elder of the territory. The Scourge were a traditionally feared band of kindred, considered a rural extension of the Princes hand.”
