“The Order” is a secretive organization within Zelandia that purportedly exists to defend Zelandia and its people from various supernatural (and sometimes perfectly mundane) threats. The name of this enigmatic group; whether invoked by a hunted cultist or a perfectly innocent citizen that has heard the various rumors about the group is never spoken in any tone but a whisper; as if speaking the name aloud will cause the mysterious and terrible agents of The Order to swoop down and drag the speaker off.
The Order has four distinct sub-groups within it that all deal with specific types of threats:
- Ordis Infernalis – Deals with demons, devils and their assorted cultists and servants.
- Ordis Chaotica – Deals with the forces and agents of Chaos.
- Ordis Mortis – Deals with the threat posed by “unsanctioned” undead and necromancers.
- Ordis Unfamiliaris – Deals with both Aberrations and various Outsiders that don’t fall under either Ordis Chaotica or Ordis Infernalis.
