Jord: Dawn of a World
An order created by Garos in 9 BC after he sank the body of Thratgurulukhai into the Sea of Tears, comprised of members of all the races on Jord. It is rumored that those in the order did not join willingly, but were instead “taken” from their lives by the deific will of Garos and set to their tasks.
Initially tasked with preventing anyone from setting foot on Garos Island, or recovering any of the treasures located within the city of Nargaroth remaining when he stole the Orcs’ floating fortress from them, it is rumored among the dockside bars that the Taken now pilot black, low-sided ships made of some sort of floating rock to commit nefarious deeds in Garos’s name all over Jord.
Even more chilling still, tales tell of many members of the Givers being secret members of the Taken working in disguise before they officially disbanded in 5 AS.
