Introduction

Known as 'The Cult', 'The Cult Of The Countless', and 'The New Emeraldite Empire'. This is a military group that is trying to take control of Templhelm by force, or any means possible. As the name may suggest, they are very large in rank, and have a cult-like system of hierarchy, following their leader Mikair The Maw's commands without hesitation. Some suggest that Mikair is more interested in gaining power for himself than completing any 'holy crusade'.

Their Agenda

The Cult seems to want to give more power to Planu as opposed to the seven lesser gods.

They also seem to want to punish the majority of Templehelm for obscure reasons, often stating that the inhabitants of Templehelm have failed their gods, without giving any further explanation as to how they have failed them.

Unlike many previous cult groups (e.g. Zeolix followers), the Cult has been taking control of swathes of land in Templehelm, and also claim to be the true Emeraldites. This suggests that they may be looking to create a new Emeraldite state within Templehelm.

Military

Structure

The Cult has an almost unknown structure, though some parts have been pieced together, for now it seems that the leader of the group is Mikair The Maw, who seems to have absolute power over all lesser members of the cult. This is the supposed hierarchy of the Cult. It isn't fixed, and there will be other members that haven't been mentioned here, and possibly those of higher rank than Mikair The Maw.


All members in italics are now deceased:

Brothers: Brother Hemet, Brother Garret

Brothers in Training:Judgement,Verdict,Fate. (Verdict and Fate quickly betrayed the Countless after Larrow the Leash's Death.

Weapons

The most prominent weapon of the Cult is their 'Maw Stone', the name is thought to have been drawn from the name of the leader of the Cult, Mikair The Maw. The maw stone is a magical device which fires a ray of some unknown magical force into a victim, this beam destroys all it comes into contact with. These stones are very small and can only be used by true Planites, and are very slow to be powered up. They are also thought to protect equipment from being tampered with (The Cult left lots of equipment on a path they were building through the jungle, and none of the equipment in close proximity to any maw stone was able to be tampered with).

The Cult has been known to posses large catapults, these are probably their largest type of weapon.

They mainly fight hand to hand, so often use Cult Longswords and sometimes Battle-axes, many of which have been recovered after battles for examination. Cult Longbows have also been recovered after battles, as the Cult makes use of skeletal archers to back up their ghouls and Brothers.

Units

The cult makes use of Ghouls and Skeletal archers, often with the title of 'Brother' to do most of their fighting. These units have basic training, and basic equipment. These brothers are summoned from the dead using blood circles, and will continue appearing to join the battle unless the circle is broken. The 'Brothers' are often under the command of a 'BigBrother', who has had significantly more training and often only joins the battle after the enemy has been tired.

The View

The view is a castle-like magical structure that the Cultists have the power to teleport around Templehelm. It is often used to base their activities from, and appears on the edge of many battles and outside many cities under siege. It isn't currently known how it is able to teleport, though it may be something to do with 'Maw Stone magic'.
