Splintered Fang

Jump to: navigation, search

The Splintered Fang are a warrior cult who worship the Coiling Ones.[1]

Beliefs

The Shamans of the cult are considered blessed by the daemonic entities of strength and cunning that they call the Coiling Ones. They are able to brew deadly poisons, enhancing their serpent familiars toxin which they gift to the warriors to coat blade and barb enabling them to strike down their enemies with ease. [1a]

Theer are still some within the cult that secretly worship Nagendra rather than his children. [1b]

History

Their ancestors were tribespeople in the jungles of Invidia who worshipped a pantheon of animalistic deities that included the Godbeast Nagendra but this was corrupted by Chaos and their loyalty clamined by the Coiling Ones, daemonic entities claiming to be children of the Serpent Father. They then wiped out the other tribes of the area and tossed captives into snake pits, taking only those not slain by their toxins into the growing cult. This custom still continues with captured enemies. [1b]

Warriors of the cult serve as mercenaries for Chaos Lords. [1b]
