Question about v3-era DM Faction

  • Discord discussion was going on about the EO and what they were meant to be.

    We know IC they hunted infernal, and caused problems for sorcerers. From an OOC standpoint, what was the faction's purpose?

    I'm not talking IC goals and plots, but what was the function meant to be on OOC level? It's my belief they were implemented to serve as an LE faction that abused the law to commit morally questionable actions, as well as serve as a counterpoint to the LN/LG Militia, Purple Dragons and in many ways, an evil equivalent to the War Wizards.

    As well as the KOTMS was still around at the time, serving as an easy conflict source.
