Abridged History of the 10th Age
There are those Roadwardens of Vaela who pledge themselves to service as Sacred Heralds, who carry messages throughout the North. There are few of them left, though they were once part of the public message-carrying system of the Second Empire. To interfere with a Sacred Herald’s duty is sacrilege and their task is recognized as holy by ALL the civilized gods of the North.
The largest concentration of Heralds that remain are the Roadwatcher Temple in Miles where they can be dispatched by the Ard Ry to carry out his orders.
