Of the many secret societies in Drystan the Priory is propably the oldest and most secretive. Basically it is an inner circle of high ranking clergymen and nobles who have many ties to the temples of Corwynt. They call themselves the “Protectors of the Six Virtues” and hold a belief that mortal kings and emperors are unfit to rule and therefore should be replaced by theocracy. Some go as far as to think only those who can use White Magic are close enough to the gods to rule.
Very few are aware of the order’s existence, as it has been though to have disbanded several different times. No one knows how many members there truly are, let alone who they are. The order conceals its tracks with strange puzzles and elaborate riddles as if to mock those who try to expose them.
