The World Runners are a small organization of adventurers, nobles, and benevolent creatures dedicated to eliminating the scourge of Ludimar from the Known world. The Organization was came into being as the Ludimarite Faith came into favor among the mages of Western Mazavi shortly after the Exilic War. The Group’s Founder, the man-dragon Shimin is both powerful and enigmatic, he is known to few outside the World Runners and many veterans of the organization have never knowingly met the sage.
The Worldrunners are devoted to destroying Ludimar in any way possible and some members chose to pursue these ends through questionable practices such as interrogation, subterfuge, espionage, and intrigue. While the leadership does not condone many specifics of these actions they recognize the folly of turning their back on allies when so great a threat looms in the world.
Members of most classes are welcome in the Worldrunners, particularly rogues and wizards, some paladins may find their moral flexibility to be objectionable but a handful can be found among the organization’s membership, often trying to persuade their peers to fight Ludimar from a position of righteousness. Pathites and Monks of the Silent Hand are common among the world runners as are clerics, particularly of Valalique.
