The Healers of Shartak - Origin
The Healers are an old group that dates back years before the first outsiders came to Shartak. The native village of Dalpok, with its abundance of healing herbs, had always turned out talented healers. The knowledge of advanced healing techniques had been passed down from the ancestors to the numerous healer families of Dalpok, their duty - to tend to the injured and sick. One year, a disease carried by bats and rodents swept through Shartak. Many people succumbed to fever and died. Dalpok was not effected seriously and, thanks to the many healers, those that were dying were soon nursed back to health. However, the disease inflicted heavy losses on the settlements of Wiksik and Raktam. The healers soon realised that the warlike but easygoing people of Wiksik and the peaceful and pround inhabitants of Raktam needed their help. Although these settlements had their own healers, the fever was too fierce for only a few healers to handle. The elders of Dalpok insisted that the healer families stay in Dalpok and dismissed the severity of the fever in Wiksik and Raktam as the will of the ancestors. The healers went despite the protest of the elders. With the help of the healers, Wiksik and Raktam the disease only did minimal damage. One year later, a raiding party from Wiksik attacked Dalpok, killing and wounding many people. The elders of Dalpok were furious at the healers for nursing the people of Wiksik back into health. They condemned the healers for helping their enemies and then they exiled many of the promenant healers. The healers went from Dalpok to teach other natives their knowledge, swearing that they would heal anyone that needed it, regardless of their beliefs or allegience. Even people that were sworn enemies needed healing. A decade later, the healers - now a group consisting of natives from all over the island - were allowed to return to Dalpok.
Many years later when the outsiders first came to Shartak, the healer's services were once again needed to attend to the victims of battle. The healers were quick to realise that these pale-skinned creatures were also human and their bodies worked in a similar way. The healers saw that these outsiders even had healers of their own and knowledge that they did not yet know of.
In the present day the Healers of Shartak had not changed their ideal of healing anyone that needs it and welcomed any outisder that showed skill in healing into their group. The Healers of Shartak seek to establish themselves as an efficient group of healers throughout Shartak and heal outsiders, natives and even pirates if they need it.
If there is a war, disease or other problem that requires the assistance of the Healers, we would be happy to help. An individual or group can request the aid of a healer or healers on the talk page or on the forum.
The Healer's Code
- Heal almost anyone that needs healing DO NOT heal notorious murderers like Armadox, Kamikui and Jessalyn
- Try to be a peaceful person. "Excessively violent" is not a good quality to have in the person who's supposed to be healing you.
- DO NOT attack other islanders except the likes of Armadox this simply leads to more work. Only kill if another group you are in calls for it or your life depends on it.
- Make friends not enemies
- Treat your fellow islanders with respect
- Don't ask your patients for payment, do let them know that donations are welcome.
