Interesting specialist faction. In regards to the rune magic, I've been thinking about the different side effects of some magic, given how these runes harness power, I think along the lines of an effect on the mind after prolonged use of this sort of magic would be interesting. Slowly driving the user mad over time, to make up for the fact they don't really suffer from the chance of a miscast.

With that aside, they fit for the setting.

Runes act like the “battery” for the magic. They only start absorbing mana when they are painted with blood, death or sense nearby fear and all that good stuff. If you want the adverse side-effects to only apply to the usage of runes, then I would propose this concept:

Grave Sickness
Death can be a consuming force, even for the living. The frozen grasp, the maddening howls and the decaying rot do not merely destroy an opponent. They affect the user as well. Making them sickly. Early stages are marked by pale skin and haunted dreams. Later on the eyes recede into the skull. This is mostly when the detachment happens. Dread Knights all suffer from a level of disillusioning towards the world. Suddenly nothing in their lives matter. A great many wives have divorced their husbands due to this inability to care. But the sickness doesn’t stop there. Death Knights, those veterans that have been using the runes for many years, grow ever more distant from civilization. Priests of Death will rarely be seen within cities, often opting to sleep in graveyard crypts or near monuments. When not in combat, a great many Priests look sickly and weak (they are, physically not weaker than before. However, they are far more haunted by passed spirits and memories of corpses). Some lose all sense in their toes and/or fingers after a time of feeling bitter cold (even though they try to warm themselves before fires). They have little concern for the healthy living. If they care for someone, it is when they are dead. Or on its doorstep. In practice this would mean that a Priest would sit still while a village is being raided, uncaring for the many inhabitant. Only after the raid would he go around to mercifully kill those wounded that are too far gone. However, should a raider make the mistake of attacking the priest, the priest will assume the raider forfeits his life and will slay him in an instant. Those so far gone are often marked with sleek, black lines running over their body. While they are generally uncaring towards anything that lives, they do honor their oath to Alexander. Though only him.

That sounds perfectly suitable for the setting in regards to the cost of magical abuse.

@Aristo I can't wait to see the finished product. Nice progress so far. :P

@GreivousKhanI only have the armament section left to do; how's it look so far? I'm just a bit tied up thinking about his equipment.

So as we move into the next chapter soon, I'm opening this more up to collaborative style I like. In where the players have a large hand in world building.

To that effect, I'm opening a Pad ppl can post ideas for the setting.

@GreivousKhanThis is just a place to establish permanency for ideas that might get lost in Discord?

So I guess we should all be aware that Khan moonlights as the notorious silverware thief of Manhattan, and has plundered over thirteen thousand kitchen drawers in his disturbing utensil kleptomania.

Going to swing out a few post today.

Btw, @gorgenmast I can still have the herald of Izalith in Abkehr if you want. Can't hurt to know the omens before possible battles.
