Organizations (Anazar Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
Anazar is home to a great multitude of both peaceful and competitive factions, sects, cults, and movements. Listed below is but a small sampling of the many organizations that vie for power daily across the face of Anazar.
 Unity of the Blade
The Unity of the Blade originated as an arm of the Elven Government at Amerilmore, but has since come to include martial groups among the humans, halflings, and orcs. The organization is firmly dedicated to the ideals of liberty, which put it at odds with the Dwarven kingdoms and many of the human settlements. The members of the Unity of the Blade hail from all sorts of martial occupations; the only class not represented is the Paladin, since their dedication to law and order directly opposes the free spirit of the organization.
 Unity of the Spell
The Unity of the Spell is the twin organization to the Unity of the Blade. Originally an arm of the Elven government at Amerilmore, the group now specializes in all things relating to magic and specifically to arcane scholarship. Most of the members are wizards, but all arcane spellcasting classes can find support and understanding within the walls of the Unity of the Spell. Anyone seeking information about magic items, arcane or supernatural occurrences, or spellcasting help should seek out a local branch of the Unity of the Spell. Like the Unity of the Blade, the Unity of the Spell is fiercely devoted to chaos and good. While they will work with characters of other alignments, all evil and lawful neutral characters are immediately distrusted and often persecuted, and even lawful good characters are marginally ostracized.
 The Shieldbearers
This is a strictly hierarchical martial order that originated ages ago in the Dwarven lands. Originally created to protect the Dwarves from future planar incursions, the group has since become a major political player in modern diplomacy. The group tries to protect the status quo at all costs, and values nothing higher than order, harmony, and structure. Because of this, the members of the group are largely dwarven, gnome, or human. Despite their dedication to order and the high profile of the political arm of the organization, the group understands that sometimes chaos has to be embraced to achieve ultimate order. This means that the organization supports several shadow wings and splinter groups bent upon the utter destruction of all chaotic groups. For this reason, the Shieldbearers are often at direct odds with the the Elven Kingdoms, and have been implicated in the recent destruction of an Elven shrine to Vethlyn, the chaotic good elven deity, as well as of industrial sabotage within the more libertarian human lands.
 Krag Ur'Gkil
This is a secret shamanic order composed almost entirely of Orcs. The leadership, which is mostly Druidic, worships Gra'nul. The order has operatives all throughout the less industrial nations, lacking operatives only in the dwarven lands and in the heavily settled human industrial states. The motives of the group are at this point unknown, but observers among the elves have noticed a recent spike in their activities, especially in the frontier regions of the Troll Wastes and the Shadowed Woods.
 The Keepers
The Keepers are a scattered and poorly understood organization of scholars from all races and lands that study the Prophesy. They believe that a firm understanding of the Prophesy is the key to unity and peace on Anazar.
