Nox Mortis

Nox Mortis is a secretive cabal of grave robbers and resurrectionists operating out of Ludendorf in Lamordia. The criminals who belong to Nox Mortis are known to sell exhumed corpses to medical schools and doctors who have a need to procure cadavers for anatomical research and teaching purposes. The Nox Mortis syndicate also maintains a branch of assassins who permanently silence any investigators or constables who delve too deeply into their secrets. It is rumored that the organization’s inner circle is comprised solely of necromancers. 

Dread Possibilities
  • Nox Mortis's necromancers animate corpses and sell the resultant undead creatures as laborers, tireless warriors for mercenary bands, and even as playthings for brothels catering to unwholesome tastes.
  • Nox Mortis runs underground pit-fights in which reanimated corpses fight each other for the amusement of bloodthirsty, jaded audiences.
  • Even though its rank-and-file members do not know this, Nox Mortis is a front for a mystery religion that venerates the Dead Three--Bhaal, Myrkul, and Bane.
