The Black Hand The Black Hand are the iron fist who serve Krychire's rulers, the Council of Necromancers. The Black Hand is made of local clan-chiefs, powerful magi, and others who have proven their worth in the desolate North. Their orders are to enforce the laws of province with all the prejudice and sadism they can muster. At the beck and call of the Hand are numerous creatures summoned from the darkest pits of the Hells, barely restrained by their masters. Many of the tribesman from the surrounding area balk at such evil magics, but those that have the stomach and the desire for the spoils the Hand offers can work their way up this social ladder, slick with the blood of those who didn't succeed.
