The Fire Mongers
The Fire Mongers are a brood of noble hobgoblins best known for their obsession with the powers of Hell. The brood has a long history of dealings with the Merchants’ Guild, and the association has enticed its leaders with the promise of power devils provide.
Recently, the Fire Mongers’ alliance with the Merchants’ Guild has fallen apart. Rumors for the falling out vary wildly, from creative differences to the Merchants’ Guild finding a doomsday machine that could destroy everything. Either way, the Fire Mongers’ interest in arcane power is not swayed, and they frequently clash with mercenaries of the Guild over control of hellish artifacts and secrets.
Fire Mongers are openly reverent of the Archdeil Bel and the realm of Avernus, though their leaders claim to bear him no real loyalty. The Fire Mongers are not interested in infernal pacts; swordmages, wizards, and shaman also count themselves among the Fire Monger brood. The Fire Mongers are deeply invested in Aries Kraul’s Warcaster Academy, and are blessed with a loyal contingent of magic-users to keep the bloodline strong.
