City of the Beast
The Black Hand
The Black Hand is the smaller of the two martial schools that sprang up with the city. Just outside the walls, on the opposite side of the city, is a martial compound belonging to the black hand. Here they teach philosophies such as changing weakness into strength, exploiting every flaw, stealth, speed, and awareness of one’s surroundings.
However, unlike its sister school, the black hand are a bit more choosey with who they accept. A prospective Black Hand Student must meet the following requirements: have no living family, have never been convicted of a crime, have never studied the Red Hand, and own nothing. One still isn’t allowed to leave without completing their training though, that much is the same.
