"We die in the eyes of our brothers so we can fight without fear. It offers redemption for the greatest sacrifice."
The Legion of the Dead was formed by Lord Ismail, follower of the goddess Vyena, as an independent army to combat great threats that arise. They are considered to be the most intimidating and devastating force in godville due to the fact that its legionnaires consider themselves to already be dead. Their headquarters is situated in Anville, allowing them to have access to high quality weapons and armors that can be produced quickly and efficiently.
- We value teamwork and socialization, all members are encouraged to speak with their guild members often.
- We are a neutral guild. The Legion accepts criminals and paragons alike, all who seek glory are welcome to attain it
- If you intend on joining use your God Voice and say Join the "Legion of the Dead" guild while your hero is outside of a city. You do not need to cancel your current quest
- Feel free to add any of the members. It is encouraged that you add the current leader of the guild, Sand Devil 庙舟畜(U • C • T)
- Unless she is to quit, Vyena is the permanent leader of the Guild. If she does leave, the next leader will be picked by voting. That leader does not retain the permanent leader status that Vyena does and another may be picked when it is time to vote once more.
And we're pretty hectic
Currently we utilize two different types of strongholds. The old Dwarven Fortresses of the past Legion have been recommissioned and can be found in underground tunnels that move beneath Godville and connect several dungeons together. There we hold back monsters from escaping these dungeons and into the outside world to terrorize nearby cities. We also have the newer Human strongholds that can be found near many large cities, the most notable of which being Anville. Legion strongholds are unique in that they are generally built in locations where Magic cannot be used, thus protecting their walls from powerful destructive magic. Fortresses come equipped with many offensive capabilities, ranging from Trebuchets to Hot Oil that is used on invading forces. Their access to underground dwarven roads serve as methods that they use in order to continue bringing in supplies. These developments allow the Legion to maintain control of a region with a relatively small force, allowing them to better spread their resources around the world.
The Legion is a military organization that accepts soldiers of any alignment or level of society. The Legion is unique as it allows people to join in order to avoid punishment for a crime they had committed or in order to restore honor to their family name. Others have joined to erase past debts and even simply for glory and the Legion accepts them all without discrimination.
Prior to joining the order, the legionnaires undergo a symbolic "funeral" where they are able to give out their last goodbyes to friends and family and to sever all ties to their former lives. It begins with chanting and drinking before their coffin is lowered into the ground and the soldier bidding his loved ones farewell. This funeral clears the name of the soldier and restores his family's lost honor. They are recorded as dead in all official records, with the cause of death being written as a "Glorious Death" against the enemies of Godville. The Legionnaire must now be able to make this a fact by fighting to earn himself a courageous and honorable death. Recruits who survive past the first few days take the Oath of the Dead and are officially recognized as soldiers of the Legion.
The Legion is based on an Ancient Dwarven order of a similar name. The last legionnaires had been disbanded after the invasion of Beerburgh during the Great Elf-Dwarf War, the order had been found to be too corrupted as their leader attempted to overthrow their king. Upon learning of them, Lord Ismail reinstated the legion as a human organization and placed several measures to ensure that the order's power is kept in check. The original Dwarven Capital of the Legion was San Satanos, the greatest Dwarven city in all of Godville. After it's reformation as human order, the capital was moved to Anville, several miles away, in order to differentiate itself from the Old organization as well as have access to the best weapons and armors of Godville.
The Legionnaires themselves are trained in the most rigorous of battles, leading to them to be very formidable opponents. A single legionnaire can easily best several people in direct combat, and entire Legions can be almost impossible to defeat. Legionnaires instead should be fought in more indirect ways, such as through decievement or magic. Their shields are sturdy and block several types of projectiles excluding those of heavy siege machinery, but strong enough magic can cause them to stagger or even break the shield.
The Oath of the Dead
Hate for Hate and Ruth for Ruth,
Eye for Eye and Tooth for Tooth,
Scorn for Scorn and Smile for Smile,
Love for Love and Guile for Guile,
War for War and Woe for Woe,
Blood for Blood and Blow for Blow.

- Have fun
- Build your temple
- Perform miracles in all the cites you visit, but ESPECIALLY San Satanos' and Anville . It is in our interest to reclaim both of those cities for the Legion
- Do duels / dungeons / sails to improve the standing of the Legion so we can take our rightful place among the pantheons
If you need/want help, give a call out, someone with a clue (probably not me) will give an answer. This is a ZPG, so no expectation to do more than what you feel comfortable with.
These are the Guilds which have pledged their services to aiding our effort in keeping Godville from collapsing. Regardless of Alignment, these guilds know that if monsters were able to destroy civilization then none of them would be able to continue doing what they love to do.
After an alliance with Crazyabeldog , Lucifer's Hounds will now be providing hell hounds to the Legion. Their gift has proven to be a major advantage in our mission of holding back the swarms of monsters that are running rampant throughout all of Godville, unchecked.
