The Phoenix Covenant
Formed in the 14th year of the reign of Emperor Elidyr I, the Phoenix Covenant was a secret society dedicated to preserving all that was best about the Empire of Nerath against the predations of the Ruler of Ruin and his armies. They gathered a band of talented, skilled individuals, and hid them away in a sealed village under the Axefall Mountains. This village, called Covenant, was stocked with magical items, books of history, and works of art, with the intent that the survivors of the war against the Ruler of Ruin should open the village and be aided in the restoration of the Empire by the inhabitants.
To that end, the members of the Phoenix Covenant drafted the Phoenix Covenant Declaration, laying out their intentions and plans.
