A relatively small organization, the Order consisted of monks, clerics, sacred fists, and fighters, all devoted worshipers of Tyr. The Order was based around Hlam's Way of the Sacred Fists, a monastic discipline that combined elements of cleric and monk training.
Although Hlam was Grand Master of the Order of the Even-Handed, he had little involvement with the organization, though he viewed it favorably.
The Even-Handed taught its members self-reliance, and bade them seek out injustice. Membership was open to most, as long as they had some talent at unarmed combat and swore vows of impartiality and devotion to Tyr.
Base of OperationsEdit
Hammer Lord Hykros Allumen, leader of the Church of Tyr in Waterdeep, deeply disapproved of the Order's mixing of monk and cleric traditions. Therefore, the Order of the Even-Handed had closer ties to—and paid their tithes to—the Hall of Justice in Neverwinter.
The Order of the Even-Handed was formed in the 14th century DR by disciples of Hlam, a reclusive monk who resided in a cave on Mount Waterdeep. Over the years, Hlam taught many students, who eventually organized themselves into the Order of the Even-Handed, receiving financial backing from Piergeiron the Paladinson to purchase a villa near Hlam's cave.
