Walls of Stone and Blood
The Green Pact
The Green Pact is an extremist group that has existed in the form of shamanistic tradition for as long as the current civilization of Vorashin has records for. However, it is only recently that they have been organized into an actual threat to the city. This is likely due to their new leader, Maleth Stagsplitter, who united the disparate clans of barbarians under a single name.
The Green Pact believes that city life in unnatural and evil, and Vorashin is the largest known city in the world. In their eyes, the city’s buildings have been permanently carved into a once noble mountain; feeding its citizens takes hundreds of square miles of land to domesticate; building the navy that carries and protects the city’s wealth requires hundreds of acres of trees; the waste its citizens produce poisons the surrounding rivers; the greedy merchant barons once enslaved the barbarians families; and the violence of so many people in one place seems to corrupt the very air.
Before the abolition of slavery, the Green Pact’s ranks were easily maintained with escaped slaves, but after the abolition, new converts have been harder to come by. They started out just trying to convince the citizens of Vorashin that the Green Pact’s way of life was more beautiful and fulfilling, but when that proved to be a slow and arduous path, some decided that more extreme methods were needed.
