The Cult of the Iron Mask is a mini-adventure that you can use in your existing fantasy adventure. The encounter location comes complete with maps, tokens, and Game Master Story Notes.

Cult of the Iron Mask

Cult of the Iron Mask ArtIn the darkness of the middle ages the rights of women folk are often left unguarded by chivalry as men give in to lust, jealousy, or the intricacies of arranged marriages made to foster alliances and cement political power.

The Cult of the Iron Mask is the direct reaction of the women folk of a distant land against the tyranny of wicked men. A secret, militant society of women folk. Who seek vengeance against those who break the vows of chivalry, abusing the sanctity and innocence of womanhood. While also offering safe sanctuary, and a new life to those seeking to flee unjust treatment at the hands of mans lust.

The average follower maintains a secret pact with the cult, watching society as innocent helpless women. Looking on from the windows of peasant hovels, or listening in from the kitchens of merchant lords.

While acolytes of the Iron Mask – normally women folk who have fled terrible husbands or oppressive slave masters – reside in a secret underground monastery. From where, the cult coordinates contacts with women sympathetic to their cause, or under the guise of the dreaded “Women of the Iron Mask,” launch raids to free the oppressed and punish the wickedness of men.
