Encounter Critical Repost: Los Caballeros de la Máscara

Inspired by the masterful Labyrinth Critical posts over at the No Signal! blog in general and the Luchador class draft in particular I repost an old favorite. Here's a Luchador organization for the Mighty Land of Vanth!

Los Caballeros de la Máscara (The Knights of the Mask)

Los Caballeros de la Máscara are a wandering order of luchador knights who wander the land of Vanth battling the evil and corrupt. Eschewing weapons and armor, these brave men, women and things defend all the races across the land according to the tenets of the mythical Luchador Kings of Terra. Even the diabolical Darth Viraxis allows members of the Caballeros to fight monsters in his lands.

The Caballeros use strength, agility, and legendary wrestling ability to battle monsters and mad scientists. Each luchador knight has a unique mask that is chosen through deeds and visions. Their skills of wrestling are honed to a fine edge, and the oldest members of the Caballeros de la Máscara are said to have almost mystical powers. Legend tells that one of the founders or the order, La Máscara de Oro (The Golden Mask) battled Darth Viraxis to a standstill after a three day conflict.

There are legends of Fallen Caballeros who have betrayed the ways of the Luchador Knights, but most of these are believed to be stories used to scare children. If they are true, these Fallen Caballeros may become a great danger to all the lands of Vanth. Darker still are the archenemies of the Caballeros and the purpose of their creation: the Lich Templars of Ossorio. These blood drinking fiends are entombed in the North Mountains, but their dark influence is felt throughout the lands of Vanth.
