The Shade Isle Campaign
Abbey cultists are followers of the Church of Acrefatum that have been fully inducted into the religion without actually taking orders. Thus, they rank above the rank-and-file worshipers and below the priesthood.
Cultists have been encountered at both the Old Fortress and at Shade Abbey, and rumor insists that they participate in the Abbey’s patrols and raids on the surrounding countryside. Cultists of Acrefatum tend to wear plain black robes and cloaks.
The majority of cultists are men-at-arms (1 HD human soldiers) or 0-level demi-humans, but some are characters with a class and a level—these tend to be any class other than fighter or druid, with expert and sorcerer being the most common.
