Spectres of the Last War
The Order of the Emerald Claw first appeared in Karrnath a few years into the Last War. Even though Karrnath had the largest standing army when the Last War broke out, famine and pestilence weakened the nation to the point of disaster. The Order of the Emerald Claw rose, like a miracle, to defend their homeland with flexible, self-sufficient, and fanatical tactics. These flamboyant knights upset the established Karrnathi command structure with their unorthodox methods, but none could deny their effectiveness.
Despite the order’s many successes, suspicions about their intentions and goals never ceased to circulate among Karrnath’s military and government officials. Late in the war, Regent Moranna dissolved the order and drove them underground. Today, the order still has its defenders though most consider it to be a group of fanatics that overstepped its bounds.
