Isle Imperium: The Numbers of the Diamond Grey Legion

One of the favorite shards of
Alecto. Alecto's sister, Megaera,
was also in the Legion as part
of the 3rd Number.
The Diamond Grey Legion was broken up into tactical units known as Numbers. The most elite of the Numbers were Numbers 1 through 10. A Number tended to have a collection of shards per mount, but they had their favorites. Also, at least one member of each Number was tasked to bear a Warder shard so that other Warders could communicate with them -- especially the Ruling Warders.

By dint of unusual circumstance, our PCs eventually ended up in the First Number, but without full knowledge of the traditions and strictures of the legion. We were, however, granted leeway because of two things -- we'd helped save the Diamond Legion, and the previous incarnation, the Diamond Red Legion, was one of the secretly (or not so secretly to other Legions) villainous Legions, notorious amongst the other Legions like Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, and Copper. As a result, our occasional lapses in communication and protocol were viewed as actions of cunning and scheming, masked by the galling air of innocence and heroism.
