Abridged History of the 10th Age
A secretive organization of assassins who worship the elven Shadow Gods, the Ashblade Assassins are known as the fiercest and most dangerous of all mercenaries in Arune. They were heavily involved in the War of the Moon and still operate all over the world. It is rumored that they use the elvish Silver Road to quickly move about the land carrying out their clandestine operations.
The Ashblades do not take philosophical or idealogical stands, nor do they support one political viewpoint over another. They are strictly mercenary, and any Ashblade may be operating on any side of any conflict-indeed there may be more than one assassin on more than one side of any war.
