The Sisterhood Of The Lady Of Mercies

The Sisterhood is a noble organization of female clerics and paladins dating back to the earliest human civilization in the world, Donlin. The sisterhood are careful to observe the traditions of their foremothers diligently and observe many practices which seems odd in the eyes of their eastern counterparts. They have for nearly a century been on the forefront of a bitter war with the Tanar’ri around the former site of Donlin and have a tendency to view any deviation from their traditions as the first step down a dangerous path into demon worship. Despite this rigidity in their beliefs they are among the most valiant and powerful crusaders for good in the known world.
