In exchange for unscrupulous service to the powers of darkness and evil, these magi gain occult knowledge and power. This is not a true “order” of wizards, just a label for a group that leverages the Unholy Trio’s desire for personal power. Many rationalize their choice as having no impact overall – the balance between light and dark is actually what is being served. A full 10 years of pledged service during which time they may say no only twice. After that, they are hunted and killed. The Sable mark makes them vulnerable to the powers of darkness. It is obscured and removed after 10 years of service. There are three to five sable “towers”; Some are caves, only 2 are actual towers in ruins of fallen cities in the east.
