The Silent Ones
The monks that don’t talk are a real downer in any good bar fight. They strike to subdue, and try to break up any fight they run across. They are firm protectors of the weak and slaves, and spend time at New Years rescuing new arrivals from the wilderness of Blugar’s World. The origin of the vow of silence and their passion with non-lethal combat is unknown. They do kill non-humans, and are known by gnolls as warriors to be respected. Variation between the members is common – some will do nothing to communicate, while others have been known to use sign language between themselves, and sometimes with people they trust. None of them have ever been known to use a weapon.
The monasteries for the Silent Ones are hard to find, and usually days away from human settlements.
