Order of Rrakkma
The Order of Rrakkma (or “vengeance” in the Githzerai tongue) is a monastic sect based in Zerthadlun. It is dedicated to the teachings of Zerthimon, who, in antiquity, aided the forerunner/Child of the Void general Gith in rebelling against the Illithid.
Cenobites are the adult githzerai who have taken a vow to obey the community’s rules and defend it from attack, and they make up about three-quarters of the city’s population. The remaining population consists of young githzerai, a few adult githzerai who have not taken the vow, and a handful of non-githzerai attached to the community. Cenobites live in communal housing and work in fields or group workplaces where they produce goods for trade within the community and sale beyond its walls.
A select few among the cenobites, called the Sustainers, are released from the responsibilities of daily work to spend their waking hours in meditation that keeps the Elemental Chaos at bay. Their retreat at the exact center of the city is all but sealed off, and these nineteen monks live lives of complete seclusion.
