Viiseka & the Beast Races
In the Kad Lands of the southwest, The Hands of Vok are a small but influential religious group emerging as the first to be able to unify various kinds of beast races. There prophet, a lizardman named Viiseka, has drawn surprisingly large numbers of Orcs and Goblins (+ smaller amounts of other races) to his vague new religion. Which is centered around Vlaist, referred to by most beast races as Eighatet’s Eye. Viiseka speaks as emissary for the Eye, saying that the time of the beasts is finally coming but only after the storm to end storms. He claims only under his “way of the hands” would the beast races survive the coming cataclysm. His words and charisma have drawn many under his banner.
The Word and The Will has kept a close eye on the workings of Viiseka for many years as concerns grew over the groups ever increasing size and the danger they could pose to the empire.
As Cosmataeon begins, The Word & The Will are contacted by The Hands of Vok requesting an audience between the two. Eirdus Nahdanne, the Grand Magus of the council has continually delayed this meeting due to his concerns over the growing doomsday hysteria among the kingdoms. Later on when Eirsdus and The General are returning to the north from the failed invocation of Ahteon, there paths will cross with Viiseka and his followers. And at about the same time the first sighting of the Vlaist Shard will occur.
