We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Lore:  
From one generation to the next, a reclusive order of hermits have guarded apocryphal writings said to come from the Prophet himself. Vindicator, still early in his lonely quest, is the last of these lonely sentinels, but he has left his exile behind in order to join the battle against the Hellbourne. Using the potent verses inscribed in the Great Book, he wields unique and powerful magic.
