In this strange world, there are men, the majority, living all over the continents, and there are other races such as elf, dwarf, dryad,.. and so on, living in harmony. "Just like any fantasy book you say?" - Yes and no, my dear. There are of course monsters, lurk in the dark and deserted lands, as this world is indeed a world of monster and magic creatures. But some of them just are so evil, so much evil, along with many other "things" that no one even wants to spit their names - that aren't monsters anymore. They live among all other species as the counter-force of life itself, sometimes they are called "Bearer" for short, the name stands for horrors: Bearer of darkness, Bearer of blight, Bearer of shadows... and many many other names.
People need someone to protect them from the Bearers.
And that's the beginning of the story about the Masked Hunters.
It isn't hard to spot one of them. They always wear a mask that covers all their face, with what they called "honor" that is sometimes a pair of horns, antlers, or fangs... on the masks. And they use spears for their first choice of weapon. Some say it's effective against monsters, some say it's also religious, both for the masks and spears.
Of course, there is no masked hunter without a spear, but don't mistake that's all they have. Beside spears, they could wield all other kinds of arms. It's only a personal choice, just to get the job done. Some of them could even use magic, minors spell to be exact since they aren't creatures of magic. But magic is still magic. A Hunter could cast spells is a strong one, enough to earns respect from all other hunters.
