HEROES OF IMPILTUR
The nobility of Vaasa’s brutal feudal system. This twisted knightly order is based off of an otherworldly being known as Telos that fell from the sky during the Spellplague. The Warlock Knights have a hierarchy based loosely on feudal and warrior traditions common in other lands. Knights without lands are known as Executors and these petty nobles serve as emissaries, spies, soldiers, and assassins for greater Warlock Knights. Landed knights, also known as Fellthanes, have absolute control over their holdings and maintain private armies. They are vassals to more powerful figures known as Vindicators. The 12 greatest Vindicators make up the Ironfell Council which revolves around the Voice of Telos. Luminaries are members of an independent sect formed by the Voice of Telos, functioning as priests do in other kingdoms. Warlock Knights are the elite, chosen from among the most ruthless and capable in Vaasa. Every Warlock Knight must keep an eye toward lesser fellows, understanding that any weakness might open a doorway to an attack or worse. All Warlock Knights wear a simple ring of ironfell as a symbol of their station and power. Ironfell is a material that the Warlock Knights harvest from the ever-regenerating body of the primordial Telos. Telos recovers from this mining so rapidly that they have a nearly endless supply of the material. Worked ironfell is as hard as steel, though duller in luster and with a crystalline structure. It can easily be made into magic items. The greatest power of ironfell is apparent in the hands of Warlock Knights who have a starpact with the comatose Telos. Their weapons blaze with a violet, starlight glare that deals radiant damage.
