The lost secrets of the Oort will illuminate our path to ascension.
Through our labors, our people will walk the path of the Oort.
The Illuminoorti are a mystical brotherhood of monks dedicated to finding, studying, and keeping the secrets of the Oort. To this end, their monasteries often double as highly advanced research facilities situated on top of rich deposits of coveted Oort shards which is believed to power their research.
The ultimate goal of the Illuminoorti is to achieve the same level of greatness as the Oort that they idolize, often augmenting their very bodies with secret Oort tech to achieve this goal. The Illuminoorti jealously guard their secrets from those whom they deem unfit and unworthy of the powers they have gained from the unraveled secrets of the Oort.
The Illuminoorti don't hide all of their secrets from the public at large, however. By revealing the secrets of portal-magic, the Illuminoorti have helped spread civilization across the known universe. This apparent gesture of good will is entirely self serving, however. As adventurers and fortune hunters search every canyon and cave in search of petty wealth and glory, agents of the Illuminoorti follow close behind, reporting on the locations of lost Oort trove back to their masters. As adventurers find and spend oort shards commonly found and used as currency, the Illuminoorti is secretly combing for traces of advanced tech touched by the power of the shards, thus the Illuminoorti are often found at the heart of black markets and global banking systems.
Agents of the Illuminoorti often themselves do not even realize their actions are quietly monitored and controlled by their masters, and thus it is nearly impossible to detect their spies, or even how far the webs of their influence reach.
I hope you guys like this bit of fan-fiction. I decided to scale back my planned guild structure to a simple RP guild rooted in the yet unwritten lore of OO. I hope to share some imagery and artwork of this shadowy cult with you all some time. I'm open to suggestions to make them even more shadowy and spooky if you have ideas! Thanks in advance for your feedback!
