Ideabird 9/10/12

Not all guilds died out in the mechanized era. The Guild of Saint Eloi saw what was coming and took on a more mystic nature, becoming a secret society: the Lord's Order of Knife-Makers. The charismatic third leader noted the symbology of using small knives to cut larger knives, and took an arm further underground, seeing god as an infinite recursion into the miniscule. They came to worship The Infinite Edge. They are masters of the lasers and light, and enforce their secrecy with deadly silence.
