"We are Warriors of the Dark Gods: there can be no pity, no rest, no love, for the prize is the glory of the immortal."
— from the Litany of the Exalted, originally the Diary of Duryodhana [1]

The Warriors of the Dark Gods are a faction within the 9th Age.

History Edit

Magic Use Edit

The following is a quote used to describe the magic use of the Warriors of the Dark Gods [2]:

"Among the Warriors of the Dark Gods, magic is wield ed by sorcerers, whose very name has become a by word for sinister spells. Many sorcerers are raised from birth by daemons, others are inducted into the secrets of the Veil by a patron daemon. Either way, their mind bends and reforms around the truths they are taught. What they lack in the finesse or innate understanding of other casters, is compensated by an access to raw power through the Veil itself. Such power is not without cost though, and sorcerers struggle to maintain the same morality as even their fellow Warriors."

Paths of Ascension Edit

Main article: Paths of Ascension

Armies Edit

Forming armies and warbands is for many Warriors of the Dark Gods a philosophical contradiction. these warriors are individuals who mostly seek glory for themselves, because glory advances them further on the Paths of Ascension. However, at the same time, failure is punished most harshly, and even death is considered a failure. Therefore the warriors often band together, to gain strength in numbers, even though this diminishes their own individual glory. [3] [4]
