In the ancient past Clan Eshin travelled to the east, led by the first Nightlord Visktrin the Grey. Eventually all contact was lost and for centuries its fate was unknown. The clan travelled further and further to the east, establishing themselves under Ind, Cathay and Nippon. Studying the surrounding human civilizations learning the arts of stealth, infiltration, and assassination.
At the height of the First Skaven Civil War, Clan Eshin re-established contact with larger Skavendom, offering its loyalty and services to the Council of Thirteen. This act largely decided the fate of the civil war and secured a great niche in Skaven society. A remnant of Clan Eshin remained in the East, honing their skills and perfecting the Art of the Silent Death. This remnant has become known as the Lords of the Silent Death (LSD).
The Lords of the Silent Death employ a strict caste system with Night Runners and Clan Rats at the bottom. These fodder are weak and expendable and only those who survive to learn the greater techniques of the Art of the Silent Death are promoted to Nightmasters, known as Gutter Runners in the Western world. Nightmasters are famed for their canny stealth and for the ability to kill swiftly and efficiently and are the heart of the LSD. The few Nightmasters to reach the pinnacle of the LSD are elevated to the status of Nightlord, or Assassins in the West, and lead the clan. There are never more than two and never less than two Nightlords for the Clan. They are seen as a check and balance to keep any one Nightlord from gathering too much power. This leadership hierarchy is a fluid one as treachery is expected, (and encouraged by the NightLords) among this shadowy group with in-house murders frequently leaving gaps which must be filled from the ranks below.
With the great battles fought long ago, their skills growing dull from lack of use, LSD seeks new battlefields in which to hone their craft. Heeding the information brought to them by their spy network, Nightlords Throiskikkcin and Kratskittar have approached Cabal Vision to enter the inaugural season of the CIBBL, eager to prove themselves master of the Eastern arts versus their foes from Cathay and Nippon.
