    Sample text

    What has come before and what is still to come must never be taken lightly, nor fade away. When it comes to membership, the Eldritch Society is accepting of pretty much anyone that is willing to take up the fight. This includes those that society would ostracize or outright persecute. Para-psychics of all shades are welcome, though the few Zoners that are part of the organization are treated with the delicacy they deserve. Sorcerers are valued, even those that have been tainted by the Outsiders, no matter how severely.

    Strength is obviously required in order to overcome the struggles that are still ahead. However, physical strength is not the only focus. Strength of mind and will are also necessary, for the horrors the Society faces are not those of the everyday world. Left to its own devices, strength can easily become tyranny, which is why the Society also works to build compassion in its members – especially Tagers. When one must fight tooth and nail against vicious foes, one can sometimes forget the ordinary people for which he is fighting.

    When one must fight tooth and nail against vicious foes, one can sometimes forget the ordinary people for which he is fighting. Those within the Society are saviors and no one can forget that. There are lightly religious overtones to everything in the Eldritch Society, but they do not encourage a culture of worship of anything. The knowledge that powers the Society comes from a deity of some kind. The Tagers have joined in symbiosis with some sort of creature from the higher dimensions, the nature of which is usually classified as divine.
