Thrones of Dust
Hand of Truth
A knightly order dedicated to the worship of Ioun. Founded in the war to unite Setour under a single reign, it’s role was to record the war and protect the heritage of each of the provinces. Known for their silent, swift-moving Avengers, who wielded mighty Runeblades that were fabled to record the name and history of those it faced in battle.
The order seemingly vanished in the decades following the founding of Setour, but reappeared briefly to help liberate Rivemar from the Lizardfolk empire that had seized control of the province. The order has now completely vanished, though a number of sects of Ioun in Ilbakov and northern Tir’Heth can meticulously trace their founding to the Hand of Truth.
It is believed that the remaining members of the Hand of Truth joined the wood elves fleeing the Elven Wars to protect their culture, which led to the founding of the Fianna Ioun in modern Setour. Many traditions of “sacred weapons” espoused by the runeblade wielding Avengers of the vanished Hand of Truth can still be found in the traditions of the Fianna Ioun.
