Cleansing Flame

Now in its third year of adventuring, the Company of the Cleansing Flame campaign was originally a solo campaign with only the character known as Therod, a ranger. Later, Tadhg, a paladin of Lathidus joined in on the adventure. Then, finally, Brome, now a powerful fighter-mage. Other characters have passed through this campaign as well, but these three have stayed.
    The Cleansing Flame is based just outside the city of Mendenton, though its adventures have spanned throughout the Crescent mountains to as far east as Karthay and have passed through many strange dimensions, such as the Fae Realms.
    Defending the lands against the tide of orcish armies, laying low evil sorcerers and demons, exploring the depths of the underworld, rooting out despicable priests, and championing the forces of good, the Cleansing Flame's leadership has gained great experience and continues to grow in power.
    Within you will find a collection of journal entries by Therod Karynson, an essay on Corruption and the Duty of Faith by Tadhg von Artigbrauer, and also a collection of histories and details of the various player-characters of the campaign.
