Reaper emblem

In southern Byzant and the Elder Kingdoms are the rarest of the emblem groups: The Sign of Death, AKA the reaper emblems. Among their number are those who are both necromancers and mystic tattooists. It is whispered that the elders of their organisation are of these few, and are likewise ancient sorcerous Undead. Further rumours connect them to the church of Bhaal, but the reapers have no overt religious character. All of their training, and all of their mystic tattoos, are necromantic spells.
