The Doors of Oerth
The Feathered Warriors are the elite warriors of the Olman headhunters. They are rarely dispatched without the presence of one of the Witch Doctors. A prospective warrior must seek the approval of the Witch Doctors before joining and should they receive that approval they are put through a series or harrowing rituals to separate the weak from the strong. Most supplicants never survive the testing process, those that do are merciless, lacking anything resembling a conscience and brutal beyond reproach.
