Heroes of Khemer
The Sisters of Mercy
The Sisterhood is an order of healers based primarily in the town of Sanctuary, which they founded. They have established Healing Houses throughout the lands.
The Sisters do not charge for their services, but instead ask that patients perform some favor at a later date. This may be a donation (not a fee) to purchase new equipment or rare herbs, physical help in maintaining or building a wing to the Healing House, the center of the Sisterhood’s activity in Sanctuary, providing a Sister shelter on her travels, and such like.
Favors are always within the patient’s ability to “pay”. A farmer may be asked to donate a small portion of his crops to the Sisters or help in erecting a new building, for instance, whereas a noble may be asked to help fund a new building by providing materials or a workforce.
The Sisters are pacifists, believing that all life is sacred. However, this makes them easy targets for bandits or roving orcs, so they often travel with and are guarded by the Knights of of the Morning Sun.
