Saga of Jaraah
Yazd Chain Gang
Chain Gangs are an innovation of Rupert Morlock ‘The Guardian of Yazd’. They are based in the city of Taft. Criminals (some actual, some designated), are chained together and given weapons with which to defend themselves from Claacos. The chains prevent them from running away from the Claacos, and naturally if any members of the chain gang is killed, any travel is completely impossible. Soldiers prod them from behind and pick off wounded Claacos when it is safe. Members of the chain gang wear no armor and are typically armed with just a long spear. There is very little training ‘wasted’ on the vermin, so mortality is high. It is said that some kingdoms have started exporting criminals to Yazd instead wasting the expense of incarcerating them.
