The knowledge that some of the divine essence of Amoth yet remains in the cosmos led to the rise of a new cabal: invokers devoted to the memory and precepts of murdered Amoth. These secretive invokers channel the lingering might of Amoth, rather than drawing on the power of one or more deities. Called both the Adherents of Kalandurren and the Arbiters of Forgotten Justice, this cabal seeks to spread justice in Amoth’s memory. The interpretation of “justice” is subjective, however, and some members drift far from the path of the greater good. The cabal’s teachings are formally available only in a select few temples and monasteries, but rare invokers have stumbled upon these powers and prayers on their own.
Though many thousands of years have passed and even the gods have largely moved on and forgotten, some among the mortal beings refuse to abandon their memories of Amoth the Just. A god of justice and mercy, the Lord of Kalandurren was one of the greatest lights of the pantheon -- until he was murdered by a trio of foul demon lords. Yet even now, millennia later, Amoth's divine essence remains in the cosmos, spread throughout the reaches of the Astral Sea.
