The Shatter Stone are a faithless Natural One tribe that hates anything to do with Psions or direct dealings with the Gravemind. They were the original settlers of this land and you may still find trees in the forest that have the heights of their children etched into them. The leaders are fierce and their numbers are unyielding. While the act of their wars might be terrifying, there is still a tribe of people that remain behind their walls. Mothers and Fathers raise their babies, children fight and play with wooden sticks and teenagers learn to cull the land for survival. They have taken up an old overrun Cathedral to the North of Eerie.
The only people who were here before the Shatter Stones were the Drowned - but they never had any issues with one another.
The Drowned kept their secrets of the Grave on their island and respected that it never get brought to their land. In return for council and defensive services from the Drowned the Shatter Stones have offered them the bodies of their dead before they sink a final time.
Whatever the Drowned are doing is keeping their loved ones out of the cycle of the Gravemind and that is all the Shatter Stones care about.
They take great pride in the fact that, even though they flourish as a tribe, they do not empower the Gravemind’s armies.
They are lead by Mercy Shatter Stone, a G-Man who worked with local Purebloods and Rovers to allow them to live on their land and use their protection on the condition they provide a monthly tribute to them. Mercy’s second in command, a mysterious and unnamed woman, is a Mind Killer who upholds their law of no Psions on their land.
The Trubers give them tomatoes, the Survivors give them meat, the Lab gives them machines to guard their walls and the TPK offers scraps.
If you are a interested in joining or creating a character from this family you must be a Natural One, Lascarian or Semper Mort.
Recently with the Shatter Stones:
They have made a Rover deal with the members of Eerie during the negotiations of the most recent war. In return for the Shatter Stones pulling back their enemies and allowing the settlement of Eerie to remain on their land - the town agreed to pay a one time tribue of 100 Jacks and a remaining treaty that:
No Psions will ever enter their land and they will never be tricked into helping a Psion. If they are tricked into either of those situations the Shatter Stones will send the Psions head back into town without repercussions and, if they are unsuccessful in doing so, will demand the head of the psion be sent to them so the treaty will not be broken.
They agree to not hunt, nor hurt, and existing Psions in the settlement of Eerie so long as they stick to their land.
Furthermore, the town agreed to send the 3 heads of the leaders of the laskies as a final tribute to not just be treated like neighbors, but equals. This will solidify their peace and the town will forever earn the Shatter Stones respect and unwavering loyalty.
