Brand ImageEdit

Made by one of the group's members, the group carried and gave out business card like coins that were a little larger than a copper piece. More functional than beautiful, these small copper coin-like platters had the groups name printed on them.[9]

The groups members wore armor of green and brown.[10]

HistoryEdit

"Harvest Close" (2x17)Edit

First having traveled to the Dwendalian Empire from the Mangerie Coast part way through 835 PD[11], this group was hired on a seven month retainer by the Empire.[12] Stationed in Nogvurot where they would, when called upon, kill and hunt things down, and do any manner of task where the Empire couldn't bring the Righteous Brand to do or where the crownsguards were unable to do due to having to stay in the city. Most of the time the group sat around in wait.

The Mighty Nein encountered this group in Zadash during the Harvest Close Festival while they had been given a week's leave to compete in the Victory Pit.[1][13] As the forth group to be called out in the first round[14] they fought and defeated a 15-foot long giant crocodile.[15]

Advancing into the second round of the tournament the group faced off against and successfully defeated a pair of displacer beasts.[16]

"Whispers of War" (2x18)Edit

With the Mighty Nein having been the only other group to advance into the final round of the tournament, the Stubborn Stock entered the arena as the last and final group to compete. The group faced off against and in an exhausting battle defeated[17] a large 20-foot wyvern that had its wings purposefully carved and cut so as to prevent it from flying.[18]
