The Monastic Order of the Most Blessed St. Bryl
Bryl Rotgut is the dwarven patron saint of Ale and Hospitality. Legend says that Bryl was a brewmistress so skilled, so accomplished, and so deft in the weaving of hops, malt, and wheat that the Allparents themselves became impressed and dragged her down (Down is always good, in Dwarven culture) to dwell with them always and craft the booze of the Gods. Bryl’s greatest teaching is that no dwarf or dwarf-friend should ever go thirsty in this world or the next. To that end her many followers – for she is a very popular saint— have established numerous hostels and monasteries in the most distant and dangerous reaches of the Empire, where weary travelers can find sanctuary and succor. The paladins of St. Bryl ride specially-bred war dogs into battle; each of these St. Bryl-hounds carries a hefty cask of ale attached to its collar in case they should need to dispense life-giving beer to the lost or injured.
+ Dwarf King, + Priestess, / Crusader, – Lich King. The Order prizes charity and self sacrifice and despises wickedness and despair, but the Crusader’s take-no-prisoners attitude makes them hella uneasy.
