From publisher blurb:
The Order of Mamaka, Master of Steel, is the most politically powerful clerical order in the Hârnic church of Agrik, the evil god of war and violence. The order's grandmaster is the Agrikan church's highest representative on Hârn and the order's control over the Hârnic church is threatened by the other Agrikan orders.
The Order of Mamaka reveres weaponcrafting and alchemy as the practical worship of Mamaka of Mameka, the Holy Smith of Balgashang. The order, which refers to itself as the "Masters of Steel," produces the fabled Mamakan Blades wielded by its clerics and their sponsored fighting order, the Warriors of Mameka. The priest-artificers of the Masters of Steel use alchemical formulas recorded in their holy scripture to produce some of the most terrifying weapons known to contemporary warcraft.
The order defines much of their religious practice in terms of testing and ordeal and Mamakan ceremonies are acts of mental or physical torture leading to the "Sacrifice of blood and pain."
