The Blades of Light, an organization whose purpose is to seek out and thwart
the plans of those with less than noble purposes throughout the Flanaess.
Formed as a joint effort between the temples of good-aligned deities to
handle matters which the temples themselves lack either the time or resources to
handle, the Blades recruits and trains good-aligned adventurers to work as
highly specialized strike units. The organization itself provides these
adventurers with a source of information, reasonably priced equipment, training,
and other resources. In exchange, the adventuring companies provide
the Blades with information which they gather, and a fine selection of magical
arms and equipment from their ventures which the individual companies do not
find a need for.
In many respects, the Blades of Light is like an adventurers' guild for those
of good heart who seek to improve the world for the sake of all living beings.
