They continue to operate in a semi-terrorist fashion to this day, proclaiming their desire to see Karrnath once again rise to power and garnering support from the Blood of Vol. The Order of the Emerald Claw is spread throughout Khorvaire.
The Order of the Emerald Claw was established in 896YK and soon after came to the aid of Karrnath during the war. With perfect timing during a period where Karrnath was on its last legs this group of warrior fanatics came to its rescue and bolstered its defenses. Due to its radical faith many distrusted the Order of the Emerald Claw and soon the distrust turned into scorn so strong that Regent Moranna staged a coup and outlawed the Order of the Emerald Claw in 976YK. The group still exists today but only as a shadow of its former self living like terrorists and guerrilla fighters.
The Emerald Claw received its name from Erandis Vol's dragon father who was known as the Emerald Claw.

The leader of the Order of the Emerald Claw is known as The Queen of Death by most members, a mysterious lich who controls the entire order with the help of the Crimson Covenant. Due to the collapse of the order after being officially outlawed from Karrnath the order cannot simply go about its business like it did during war times. Now the order has been broken into numerous cells spread out over Khorvaire. The leaders of each of these cells are officers who receive orders from the Crimson Covenant. Below these officers are the knights who're proven specialist warriors. Next are the troopers who are either cultists, criminals or Karrnathi patriots. Spies are used by the order along with mercenaries when required.
The Order of the Emerald Claw makes a good villainous group without any moral ambiguity.
The Order is known for its use of distinctive helmets with half-faceplates.
