This report will be discussing a new faction that is in Celeritas Eos which is a low fantasy-mature-horror-survival-RPG series for Neverwinter Nights.

Posted by KnightofEquulei on Nov 5th, 2012

This is the eighth news report for Celeritas Eos Equilibrium of The Night which is an open world survival-horror-action-RPG for those of you are still unacquainted with this mod. In this report I will be discussing one of the new factions that players will encounter in the world of Celeritas Eos known simply as "The Purgers." Read on to learn more...

The Purgers: 

The Purgers are an underground organization dedicated to "purging the land of all evil." This evil typically includes anything that lives and is intelligent such as humans. The Code of the Purgers says that humanity is evil and must be "cleaned from the world" and members of the organization believe that the undead outbreak was not brought on by some ancient evil in the Castle Lox Avue or magic but rather was a product of human invention and for that reason alone humanity must be made to pay.

The organization consists of rather small numbers - or so it is believed - which is why they've never been able to launch a full scale attack against humanity but when they do attack, they attack vital parts of kingdoms and constantly come up with cunning schemes to destroy humanity and contribute to the deaths in secret ways such as by poisoning water supplies for towns or attacking caravans bringing food into cities and then impersonating the dead merchants and poisoning the food that they were bringing.

Anyone could be part of The Purgers and you may never know.

Generally the existence of the organization is known only to a few and these few are people of note, people in power who the organization are continually trying to assassinate so that they can continue their activities unheard off. With the recent undead outbreak, eyes have shifted away from the organization and they have been able to play a more active role by taking advantage of the chaos and causing more strife. Indeed, The Purgers now believe that the time to destroy humanity is right and that by striking quick (and where it hurts), they just might be able to gain the advantage over the people in power, get insiders into places, assassinate these people, cause confusion, riots and chaos in towns and then cause a full scale war completely devastating humanity wherein members of the organization will go and kill any human survivors from such a war.

Little is known about why The Purgers wish to purge the world of humanity and even their name is a nick-name given to them by those that know of them. Their real name, the motives behind their actions, their leaders, their identities and how they plan to go about in achieving their goals is entirely unknown. Some even believe that the leaders of the organization aren't human and that such misanthropy could only be brought on from another race who hate the human race for some reason or another, possibly due to racism or just general dislike of those who would change the world.

They watch in the shadows...

Whether they play a large part in the plot or not is something I cannot say. They might be part of a sub-plot, the main story or just part of the background information on the world. They are mysterious and hidden, therefore who can say what characters are part of their organization? Even elite agent knights sent by Kings and Queens in the past to uncover information about the organization have uncovered nothing. Likewise The Emperor - who has connections everywhere - has been unable to uncover anything which leads many in fear of an entity that officially doesn't even exist.

In the shadows they hide. In the shadows they breath. In the shadows they wait, sowing the seeds of destruction... 

And with that said I must also add that the competition to design a quest for Celeritas Eos is over. The Entries are below:

  1. Thirdpres (Top Entrant and Winner)
  2. Wombaciur
  3. Menatv
  4. SummerKnight
  5. Hawkeye447
  6. Rebby-ra

Thanks to all who participated.

Congrats Thirdpres! Looking forward to see your quests in the module.
Does that mean my quest will be implemented in the module?

That quest? No.

You did present me with an idea though for another quest. Though it isn't to do with your quest. You posted something that gave me an idea for a quest though (truth be told I was planning to do the quest before but decided against it until I saw your comment).

Congrats to Thirdpres~!
What you posts at Bioware social network seem great and
intriguing.

For the next article, I would like to know a bit more about these "factions".

What kind of benefit or drawback will Lucia gained in either of the factions?

For example, being a prostitute, branded with sign of filth, might make
knights of Avue regard Lucia untrustworthy and obscene.
Those patrolling knights might even bully or extort Lucia once they witness her escorting at street corner.

On the other hand, Lucia will not only get fast money, but also get acquainted with underworld criminals and buy some unique items in black market.

Thanks for frequent updates.
I'm glad and appreciated to know this upcoming great module. :)

congratulations to Thirdpres. im guessing his prize will be having his quest in the module

since this module will have sex in it. my question is if there will be the downsides of sex too? like STDs or pregnancy (pregnancy could be a bad thing when your trying to run away from zombies). and will there be countermeasures, like: contraceptives, salves, potions, doing it in nr2?

I must say, the module is looking really good and I love all the information you are giving us in the news posts. I'm particularly excited about the faction system; what is you describe is very different from say, Skyrim, where you can just join all the factions and even lead them all. That, and the large companion pool and stuff makes it sound like this module will have heaps of replayability.

I do have two questions though, and I apologise if I missed them being answered already. Firstly, does the game continue after you solve the "main" quest, allowing you to pursue side quests, and secondly, what is the intended difficulty setting? I'm assuming your balancing it on normal, but I wouldn't be surprised if you were actually rolling with D&D hardcore. I kind of expect that I might not be good enough to play through as intended, though I'll give it my best, so I might find myself on easy if I'm unable to progress.

The mod ends after the main quest is finished and the intended difficulty setting is normal.
