What I love about FfH is that nobody gets off as being too "good." But this changed with the Empyrean, and since then it bothered me... the Empyrean get off light. They're too idealized for an otherwise dark world. Tolerance, understanding, wisdom... how boring. The Order is basically the Inquisition (except they're usually right), the followers of the Runes will watch you starve while accusing you of being too lazy, the Fellowship will slit your throat for chopping down the wrong tree, the followers of Esus will stab you in the back for a few coins... and where do I start with the Overlords or Ashen Veil? So, what's the Empyrean's dirty little secret? Or is it planned that we'll find that out later?
