Few know of the Hand of Amas, and fewer still know about how they operate and their broader objectives. While they are a Faction within the temple of Amas, they serve as an intelligence gathering arm, watching for foreign and domestic enemies of the Lysantho empire. They maintain a large network of spies even far beyond the empire’s borders. And, they recruit others through layers of intermediaries so someone may not even realize they are working for this shadowy organization.
To those within its actual ranks, theirs is a holy task. They watch and spy with cold efficiency, the very act of which is their way of honoring their god. Every briefing is a sermon, every classified document a prayer book, honoring Amas by uncovering hidden truths for the benefit of the Lysantho empire.
