HEROES OF IMPILTUR
Celestial Dragon Monks
This order of monks is located in Kara-Tur. Each clan is dedicated to the guardianship of a powerful treasure. The players encountered the clan that was the sworn protectors of a torch of Spellfire with the power to turn life to undeath and undeath to life. The leader of the clan was an old monk known as the White Dragon. As a young man during the Spellplague he had witnessed the spellfire’s devastating affects. After the gods of life and death made their sacrifice to contain the Spellfire’s power, he founded the clan to ensure its protection. Under imperial decree the monks agreed to place the Emperor’s daughter, Eiko, in the Spellfire in an effort to try and remove her undead condition. When the heroes tried to stop them they were assaulted by waves of monks wearing samurai armor and wielding flaming swords. The White Dragon and his elite group of monks succeeded in placing the girl in the magical flame. The Spellfire, given new fuel, began to blaze out of control. Caught in the resulting backlash, the White Dragon was transformed into a powerful undead specter made of blue Spellfire and his monks were turned into Plaguechanged Ghouls. The heroes defeated them and managed to re-contain the spread of the Spellfire.
