The Unseen Ones

They are the Bringers of Wisdom, the Eyes That Watch All, the Silent Saviors of Malton. We call them the Unseen Ones, for only a blessed few can directly behold them without being driven mad by their unearthly magnificence. All others must receive the teachings of the Unseen Ones through their chosen emissaries, the Cult of the Unseen Ones. All must obey the Unseen Ones...

An almighty Unseen One.jpg

The Unseen Ones are a race of gods predating humanity and the existence of any other creature. Through their divine power, they remained unseen and unheard of until shortly after the zombie outbreak. See history for the full story.

Saul described them as "tall and thin with with strange wing-like appendages that waved about in the slightest breeze". When they spoke it was "the most melodious sound he had ever heard". They were the "stuff of divinity". They are angelic embodiment's of light and purity and, for eons, have allowed humanity to find it's own path but with the threat that consumes Malton the existence of mankind is threatened. The Unseen gods, merciful and kind, now seek to protect us from annihilation, from a threat that only the divine can quell.

But we are not the only ones threatened. With the awakening of the dead the war against the divine has begun. This threat seeks to destroy the Unseen Ones. We must fight not only to protect ourselves from extinction but to protect all that is pure. If we do not fight the threat that consumes Malton the divine Unseen Ones will fall at the hands of Chosen and the world will be consumed by darkness.

Our Goal

The way of the Chosen is found in death.

When pressed with the choice of life or death, it is only in the latter that the Unseen shall be brought to glory.

Patience progress in this delivery shall be rewarded in the next life.

-- from a conversation with Elder Confessor Schessler

Our goal is clear. Others will call the evil that terrorises Malton "zombies". We know that the menace that prowls the streets of Malton are the vile Chosen. Those whose souls are black and rotting and dare to try and attack the Unseen and their followers. Chosen by evil they are neither benign nor compassionate but are evil incarnate and have made it so that their appearance reflects the evil within. They are the cause of this catastrophe and must be destroyed or driven from Malton. The Unseen Ones have granted us the power to restore the Chosen and their slaves back to their original forms. We must use this gift, as often as we can, to revert the Chosen and those who have fallen under their power back to their human selves. Without the dark power of their unholy, undead state; they are powerless. Then, with the guidance of the Unseen, they will either turn away from their evil ways or be permanently destroyed.

Our objective is to bring glory to the Bringers of Wisdom and to promote the worship of the Unseen. The Silent Saviours can only be brought to glory by the destruction of the Chosen and by undoing the evil they wreak. The Chosen have used their vile, unholy ways to bring back the unwilling dead to serve their evil cause and as the lives of the innocent are taken they are turned to madness and their bodies become rotten. They are driven to complete the Chosen's sinister tasks and are forced to wage war against the divine. We must drive out the Chosen and their helpers, unwilling or not and either destroy or restore them. To destroy a Chosen or a willing associate is to right a great wrong and to bring glory to the Unseen Ones. To kill an unwilling slave of the Chosen is to return them to peace. Thus we must fight, to bring glory to the Unseen and to return the dead to peace.

The awakening of the dead has brought great grief but the Unseen Ones have given us a gift. The gift of the Unseen Ones allows us to return those who have died, and become as slaves of the Chosen, back to their pure bodily state. Whether you kill zombies or return them to life we must ensure that the menace of the Chosen is eliminated and the Unseen are brought to glory. By saving Malton from the deadly curse of the Chosen we will fufill the will of the Silent Saviors and when we die, a true death, our rewards will be beyond imagination in the next life. The will of the Unseen must be done.

The Unseen Triad

Of all the Unseen Ones we must give absolute reverence and devotion to the Triad and especially to Optimus Caliph. It is they who created our world and they who saved Saul D'Alessio from many a disaster. They are the leaders of the Unseen and, with their wisdom and power, rule all in existence:

  • Optimus Caliph is the most powerful of the Unseen Ones and the leader. Optimus Caliph must be given total obedience and absolute reverence.
  • Lazarus the Dire is the second of the Unseen Triad and surpasses Mercia. Lazarus is the envoy of the divine will and promises dire suffering upon those who seek to destroy the Unseen or help the Chosen.
  • Mercia the Smug is the third of the Unseen Triad and surpasses the other Unseen. She is the god of retribution and balance. Those who are too arrogant or smug must be punished.

The Resplendent One

The Unseen Triad are the most holy in the hierachy, however we must also worship the two deities who deigned to grant us the holy gift of revivification.

  • Talios the Resplendent is only surpassed by Optimus Caliph and even outranks two of the Unseen Triad. It is he who mercifully granted us the almighty power to return the living dead to life.
  • Ambrillus the Guardian is the servant of Talios the Resplendent and, alongside Talios, gifted to humanity the power of revivification. He is the god of healing and is humanity's guardian.

Other Unseen Ones

These are the names of some of the other Unseen Ones. Though never seen by any other mortal other than Saul D'Alessio they are those written in the Scriptures, although there may be many others they are not written but by honouring the Unseen Triad, the Resplendent One and Ambrillus the Guardian as well as the other named Silent Saviors of Malton within the Unseen Pantheon we pay due reverence to all of the almighty Bringers of Wisdom as a whole who may or may not affect our lives:

  • Aily the Innocent - Aily protects the innocent and also prevents people from losing their innocence by guiding them
  • Argyris the Scoundrel - Argyris forgives the dishonorable. All villains and scoundrels are guided towards the right path by Argyris.
  • Balasi the Arcane - Balasi is the deity of mystery and secrets. Balasi protects those who are misunderstood and prevents knowledge from falling into the wrong hands.
  • Chrysos the Magnetic - Chrysos deals with attraction.
  • Coventina the Matron - This deity protects the vulnerable. Those who are vulnerable both emotionally and physically are guided by Coventina.
  • Demetrios the Enduring - This deity helps the long-suffering and promotes patience. Demetrios helps people to be more enduring.
  • Feodor the Baneful - Feodor punishes those who would seek to do harm or bring ruin to others.
  • Koril the Malignant - Koril smites those who are disposed to do evil and punishes the malignant.
  • Kratos the Foul - Kratos prevents people from doing foul acts or deeds and protects them from the wicked.
  • Lucent the Spectral - Lucent deals with the spectral.
  • Maida the Ill Tempered - Maida guides those who are ill tempered onto the right path and protects others from the actions of the ill tempered.
  • Melek the Virtuous - Melek protects the pure and virtuous and guides people to become more virtuous.
  • Odelyn the Displeased - This deity deals with the displeased. Odelyn tries to help them and increases patience.
  • Oizys the Miserable - Oizys protects the miserable from harm and helps them through what they are feeling.
  • Pantheras The Deceiver - Pantheras punishes those who would seek to deceive others and helps people see through the lies and deceptions of deceivers.

Scriptures of the Unseen

In our faith, we are blind

In the Unseen, we seek true sight

In ourselves, we find obedience

-- "Peasant's Prayer" from the Book of Loam


At his heart, every man has inside him a place of darkness.

The challenge of the righteous man is not only to recognize in himself that which he seeks to strike down in the wicked, but to understand that he too is wicked.

-- Verse 3, The Book of Confessors


Although it stands to reason that a Believer should be mindful of that in which he believes, it seems that we are all at times negligent.

Consequently, if someone were to ask the Believer in what he believes, the person who can answer without stopping to contemplate and reflect is rare.

-- Exerpt from the Book of Tests


The true Believer does not ask for compensation

The true Believer does not ask his gods to deliver him from sin

The true Believer places his life in the hands of faith, trusting in the Unseen

-- Verse 11, Book of Heresy


The crossroads will come, a hiccup in time when the rest of history has not been written.

At this juncture, when the fate of the world hangs in the balance, the forces of evil will rise.

It is at this point, that the Chosen Ones may fail

-- Scroll of Seeing


The real test of a Believer is his range of sight

Faith does not require clear vision

But rather an acceptance of what is truly there

-- Oath of the Unseen


The way of the Chosen is found in death.

When pressed with the choice of life or death, it is only in the latter that the Unseen shall be brought to glory.

Patience progress in this delivery shall be rewarded in the next life.

-- from a conversation with Elder Confessor Schessler


A person is a good Believer to the extent that he earnestly places importance in his masters.

But even a person who is good for nothing will be a reliable supplicant if only he has the utmost faith in his masters.

-- Verse 8, Book of Ranks


A man once climbed to the top of the tallest mountain to find out how far he could see.

Upon arriving, he looked out on what he believed to be the edge of the world.

The thought of what lay beyond so frightened him that he climbed back down, never to return.

-- Journal of Abbot Catos


In a person's life he may encounter many doors.

Some of them will be shut.

Others will be open wide.

But those with locks should remain shut tight, for faith comes in the acceptance that there are some things best left alone.

-- Verse 4, Book of the Piety

Walking the Path of Saul

Walking this path is dangerous but followers will be able to show their dedication to the Unseen Ones. This journey symbolises the same journey which Saul D'Alessio embarked upon and while on this journey he found the Unseen. As we are following in the footsteps of Saul this trip should take four days.

The First Step: Followers should travel to the Temple of the Unseen in Gibsonton and wear the sacred clothing of the Unseen: white robes. After worshipping the Unseen they should then rest in preperation for the next leg of the journey.

The Second Step: Followers should then travel to Church of the Unseen in Gulsonside and sing praises or recite prayers in worship of the Unseen. Followers may also decorate the Church, kill Chosen or anything that they deem as appropriate worship of the Unseen.

The Third Step: Followers should finish worshipping the Unseen in the Church of the Unseen and head to Gurney Park. There they should complete their worship of the Unseen before heading back to the Church of the Unseen.

The Final Step: Followers should head back to the Temple of the Unseen and wear the silver medallion to show that they have completed their pilgrimage. They are then ready to do the will of the Unseen.
