The Monks of Magma The Ancient Monks of Magma was an old brotherhood, some said as old as the Earth itself. These stoic monks fell silent and meditated next to or inside violent natural phenomenons like volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, typhoons, rainy seasons, forest fires, sandstorms and avalanches. Stoically, they sat quiet in pact with nature, as their surroundings panicked. They listened to nature, with its twisted screams bellowing from its innermost body with a most intense message of its harmful metals. The Monks saw it as their mission to remedy the pains of Earth, and retrieve these harmful metals by ritualized mining practices. Having listened to Earths pains through these noisy periods, made them understand where to look, and how. Ancient rites for asking for the opening of the earth into mining pits, mining shafts and quarries allowed for the monks to respectfully enter a contract with the Earth to wrest its riches from it, as they asked for an animals spirit for permission to hunt it for food. The Monks of Magma had a most understanding relation to the Being Within, and thus had frequent fortunes with finding the metals they needed. Brother of the Gold, "Coin Brother" or "Treasure Preachers" Brother of the Silver, "Ring Brother" or "Couriers of the Light" Brother of the Bronze, "Working Brother" or "Diggers of the Night" Brother of the Iron, "War Brother" or "Tempests of the Thunder" Sister of the Gems, "Diamond Nuns" or "Crystal Sirens" Enrollment Everyone believing in the meditative contact with the environments, in particular the painful screams of lone, non-extracted metals, should join this spiritual-material religion, built on material meditation.

Those that pick an attuned metal before the map is revealed, will aspire to the rank of "Prophet of the metal", and thus be leaders of the Order. This will be decided by the sequence of which metal is found first and so on. The first to identify a metal to be developed, will gain the rank, but before the map is scouted. The ranking is based of the sequence of extraction of your attuned metal tile. The Monks of Magma are known for their premier craftsmanship and smithy of metals, and would thus create the most exquisite, qualitative and robust pieces of tools, ornamentation, weapons, armor and statues ever seen by man, as they made all this of respect to wandering metal spirits, spirits liberated by saving these metals from the abyss of the inner world.
