Disciples of the Bright Way
Disciples of the Bright Way (Organization) Synopsis
The Disciples of the Bright Way are a sect that believe their deity exists in jump space and communicates directly with people while they are in jump.
Disciples of the Bright Way (Organization) Description
They call the sight of J-Space "The face of the deity" and have a secret combination of drugs and meditation practices that reduce (but not eliminate!) the insanity resulting from directly viewing J-Space.
Disciples are generally not dangerous, but their disturbing practice of shooting up drugs and staring out of an open porthole into J-Space during the week of a jump means that most captains refuse to allow them on board under any circumstances. However, the Disciples will pay an obscene amount of money for passage on a ship, and since they don't really care about bodily comforts, they are quite happy to bunk two to a stateroom under middle passage conditions and pay up to Cr25,000 each for their "pilgrimage". The Disciples also own a number of ships they use for their own "pilgrimages"; these are generally decrepit old Scout/Couriers or free traders that have been roughly remodeled to hold dozens of members in flop-house style accommodations.
