Holy Orders of the Lands of Night--The Barefoot Walkers

An ancient mendicant order, the Barefoot Walkers, or Hardheels, maintain a line of small abbeys throughout the Lands of Night, between which their members travel to spread news and good cheer.  The Hardheels follow a creed of stringent self-denial--for example, as their name suggests, they may not wear shoes--and strident faith in the Darksome Lady.  It is made them both admired and despised, in different ages.
