Mystara Declassified - MDAX01 The Villian Tome 1

Postby oleck » Fri Aug 25, 2017 8:26 pm

Well here is a new project I have been working. My intention is to make a series of supplements of the evil and criminal organizations around Mystara.

The first archive is

MD01 The Iron Ring Society Files
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwFgwGca_BvpbmRvQjZaRWFPOFU/view?usp=sharing
MD02 The Magian Fire Worshipper
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwFgwGca_BvpSWZfLVNoanlRczQ
MD03 The Fellowship of the Pouch
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwFgwGca_BvpYVpnVzFmOVdBdkU
Updated
MD04 Brethren of the Sea OF Dread
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hmP2TCFNnvfhxZ1dtAvp3dzvSHC73NlB
New
MDAX01 The Villian Tome 1
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EDOrsWBwi7rCvtRpzcuxHdGql_Lg26AK

I will need the help of you all. If you could help me make a list of all the evil and crime organizations (Slavers, Thief guilds, Evil organizations, Evil Cults, etc) you know of Mystara so that I can work in different countries and not start just doing the ones in Karameikos. Thanks a lot and hope you like it and feedback if you think it is a good idea to keep working on it.

Off the top of my head (note that some of these have references in more than one place; for instance, as I'm sure you obviously are aware, Iron Ring appears in B10, Gaz1, a dragon magazine article, etc.)

Gazetteer 1
Iron Ring
Veiled Society
Kingdom of the Thieves (not explicitly evil)

Gaz2
Magian Fire-Worshippers
Barimoor and his minions

Gaz3
Fellowship of the Pouch
Thug's Guild
Some of the other organizations may arguably qualify as well, but not all of these (not even the above) are necessarily evil

Gaz4
Pirates, but I don't recall offhand if there are any specifically named organizations. I'll have to double check this one.

Gaz6
The Thorns- basically anti-elven terrorists

Gaz9
Thieves' Guild and the Blue Eels are probably not really evil, even though they may do some evil things (assassinations at the bequest of the Guilds isn't necessarily good)

Gaz13
The Second Shadow - arguably not a "good" organization by any means

Dawn of the Emperors
The Shadow-Hand (Thyatian thieves' guild)
Storm Soldiers (Thyatis)

Champions of Mystara
Jaibul Slavers (not a single organization, at least not that has ever been named, but a general practice of this nation)

Elsewhere
Diviners of Hule (basically the secret police of the Hule Hagiarchy)

The... doppelgänger assassins from HWA3.. The Kiritanta? (I think that's what they're called and am too lazy to dig through the somewhat boxed up boxed sets halfway across the room...)

Can't believe I forgot them. Yes, the Kirtanta. There are also the Buraiya assassins from Champions of Mystara (from Kadesh in Sind), who I can't believe I forgot, since I wrote a couple of things about at various points.

Since the OP request is for "evil or criminal" organizations, I think the other "illegal" Gaz3 organizations apply -- Beggar's Court, Canine Protection Society, Boldavian Liberation Organization, Followers of the Claymore, Elven Liberation Front, Free Armed Elven Resistant Youth, Followers of Fire, People's Spell-Casters Company, Ten Thousand Fists of the Khan, are all illegal and mostly belligerent, being therefore classified as terrorists or criminals by the local government.

The Sisters of the Private Houses are more ambivalent, since they are semi-legal and defensive in purpose.

Gaz4
Pirates, but I don't recall offhand if there are any specifically named organizations. I'll have to double check this one.


There is a thieves' guild headquartered under the Mage Marina in Ierendi City.
The pirate have no particular organization, but several ships and crews are described.

Gaz9
Thieves' Guild and the Blue Eels are probably not really evil, even though they may do some evil things (assassinations at the bequest of the Guilds isn't necessarily good)


Well, the Minrothad government is not exactly benevolent... and the Thieves' Guild and Blue Eels are its armed hand.

Others:
  • there is at least a Thieves Guild in Norworld (Landfall), once headed by Prosper, a pregen from Five Coins for a Kingdom.
    The Landfall FGAZ vastly expands on this, creating a large number of rival guilds in Landfall.
  • the Black Avengers and the King and Queen of Alphaks' Volcano are definitely evil (they appear in CM1 and in the M series).
  • The Bleak League in Hule, created by Christian Constantin.
  • At least one other criminal organization headed by a Wurmling in Eusdria (Savage Coast MCA).

Dragon 206; they are discussed a bit briefly there, notably about their organization structure.

Indeed interesting Post
There are several roaming Bandit tribes and Brigands which maybe not purely evil, but they are far from being good.
One I know roams in Karameikos;Their leader was named Green Bandit (from Dark knight book I believe to remember, but can be forgotten)

Also there are several pirates. here many are truly evil, though some are not. I personally can't believe there exist "good" pirates, but that's up to the individual DM
I did found flags of the best known Pirates
https://sta.sh/014hzfza3cej
These roam the Seas of Dawn, Dread, Norwold and Savage Coast, can also be found on the Coasts of Davania.
Typically many have a Sylaire(Glantrian) name, so I assume these originate there

I don't know if you should list Humanoid bandits within this list, but there do exist many humanoid tribes working together with humans to plunder the environment; especially Ogres do this

Interesting, not very controversial in my opinion.
I do miss the pirates as from my earlier post, though... These were mentioned as far as I know in canon/fanon..and Flags are a great way to determine them. You may use my pirate flag map i you so desire.
