Striders of Fharlanghn
The Striders of Fharlanghn are a loosely run organization of adventurers and explorers who watch the horizons for signs of great evil and strive to preserve the balance of power in the realm. They are no stranger to the dangerous, uncivilized frontier that surrounds Cauldron, and do their best to protect those who must travel the wildlands while at the same time ensuring that evil does not gain a foothold in the far corners of the world. They patrol places no one else dares, and keep safe the remote paths and roadways of the frontier.
Many Striders take levels in the Pathwarden prestige class. These brave men and women take their charge as more than mere duty – they elevate it to a way of life. Pathwardens both guide and moderate the expansion of civilization into the wild.
The Striders consist of anyone with a mind to aid their fellow men in the harsh envirnment of the Maerthwatch and Chondalwood. The call is most often heard by clerics of Fharlanghn, bards, rangers, druids, and rogues.
