Order of the Open Claw

One of the newest orders to appear, this has become one of the most famous of all monasteries, although nobody seems to know where it is.

All students of the order are taught passive outlets to their natural aggression. The order has many critics, many thinking that this facade of peaceful monsters is a ploy to build an army to crush civilization. There are many who would stand up against the temple itself, if only they could find it.
