When the covenant was made with the Hunter God, all who dwelt in Breodanir swore to abide by it. The Hunter Lordsand the hunting dogs to which their minds were specially attunedwould seek out game in the Gods woods to provide food for their people, and the Hunter God would ensure that the Hunters, the land, and the people prospered.
But in payment, once a year the Sacred Hunt must be called, the Gods own Hunt in which the prey became one of the Lords, or his huntbrother. This was the Hunters Oath, sworn by each Lord and his huntbrotherthe companion chosen from the common folk to remind each Lord of his own ties to humanity. It was the Oath pledged in blood by Gilliam of Elseth and the orphan boy Stepehnand the fulfillment of that Oath would lead them to the kind of destiny from which legends were made
Once a year the Sacred Hunt must be called, in which the Hunter God's prey would be one of the Lords or his huntbrother. This was the Hunter's Oath, sworn to by each Lord and his huntbrother. It was the Oath taken by Gilliam of Elseth and the orphan boy Stephen--and the fulfillment of their Oath would prove the kind of destiny from which legends were made.
