Council of Dust
The Council of Dust is a group of dark wizards and theurgists who seek the dread power of the Uncreated Night. The membership changes regularly, as one would expect of a backstabbing cabal of power mad sorcerers who regularly summon unspeakable horrors from beyond.
The Council of Dust is an ancient organisation, dating back to the Former Empires, founded by the mad theotechnician Eurphranor Saturn who devised several profane mechanisms which manipulated the energies of the Night Roads and the Uncreated.
The fledgling Council of Dust truly began when Eurphranor unleashed a terrible monster which destroyed a Made God who name has been long lost to history. The fallen gods servants turned their devotion to Eurphranor and the Uncreated.
The Modern Council of Dust:
The Council itself is formed of a fluctuating group of less than a dozen eldritch, supported by their apprentices, cultists and minions. On a whole the Council tends to be largely rational, albeit power hungry, but the powers they court have bizarre needs that they must sate regularly.
All members of the Council and many of their servants have suffered physical and mental mutations from the touch of the Uncreated Night.
Currently they seek the Seal of Ten Thousand Suns, intending to use that artefact to open more Night Roads. Their servants, a mix of criminals, mercenaries, lesser eldritch and Uncreated abominations, scour Arcem for rumours of it, while performing strange rituals and hunting down Night Road entrances.
