The False Face Society is a magical society based in the Algonkian-Manitou Council.
The False Face Society deals with the affairs of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people in the Algonkian-Manitou Council and Sioux Nation. Traditionally, they are healers and spiritual guides, who are given almost religious respect among their people. Although it is a "secret society", they are widely-known and accepted in the NAN.
They are forbidden to use their powers for violence or monetary gain. They have a strong bias against hermetic magic and cybertechnology. Most False Face members are respected members in their community, and range from homemakers to chiefs to business men, although many take up medical or spiritual specialties. They are most well known for the ritual masks that are unique to their society. These masks are powerful foci that are typically related to Health spells or certain spirits.
The False Face Society has 2,000 members (all of them shamans whom are Haudenosaunee). It's members take an oath of secrecy and nonviolence. Though it is a magical society, they do accept non-mage shamans. Members who work full-time as Tribal Healders receive a a monthly stipend. Part-time members don't get paid but they do get the telesma and ritual materials they need for free. All members have free access to the shared resources (eg. libraries).
