Exalted – Abyssals (Moonshadow Caste)

May 18, 2010

The last of the Abyssal Castes, the Moonshadow serve as the black mirror to the Eclipse Caste, traveling the Underworld and binding the nations of the dead into the service of the Deathlords. They are excellent at moving within societies, and they use their powers to infiltrate the enemies of the Neverborn, whether in Creation or the Underworld, and bring them down from within.

The Caste Abilities for the Moonshadow are, like the Eclipse, Bureaucracy, Linguistics, Ride, Sail, and Socialize. They are travelers, traversing any distance to reach their next destination, where they insinuate themselves and tear down societies, slaying them as surely as the Dusk Caste slays armies.

Loyalist Moonshadows are truly terrifying beings, serpents in the beds of the high and mighty. They move through courts and kingdoms, whispering poison into the ears of their leaders, and watching everything crumble around them. When they leave, if everything is not in destructive disarray or indolence, it soon will be.

Rogue Moonshadows, on the other hand, infiltrate the societies of the Deathlords themselves, sidling up to their dark masters and poisoning them as surely as they would envenom the living. However, theirs is a more dangerous path, for should the Deathlords discover them, they would surely be destroyed. Worst of all, in the end, when all the socieites that worship the Neverborn are dragged down, the dark power of the Moonshadow will begin to erode the societies of the living… or they will have to destroy themselves. Even the diplomats of the Abyssals cannot escape their own power.
