Fists of the North
A loose coalition of civilians, legendary heroes, immortals, and some powerful monstrous beings. They are dedicated to exploring the continent, nurturing new talents, and continuing the inheritance of the northern continent. No single leader exists and most relationships in the faction are built on enlightened personal interest, common ideology, and temporary alliances.
The single most known figure within Drifting Wind is the immortal Waynmayn, who has the ability to create clones. Every single faction shop is ran by a clone of Waynmayn, so pretty much everyone meets this immortal at some point if they join the faction.
