Brief History

The Brightstriders are a faction of mages that thrive on their exploits with the weave. They perform for the highest bidder, often with poor or great results. A recent run of poor results has made the faction quite volatile with one another. The mages are secretive about their abilities with one another, which means that none of them will back down when confronted. As a result, they’ve taken to recruiting from outside the faction to take care of the trivial tasks they’ve been contracted.

There is a faction house within the major cities as well as some of the smaller cities.
