Fyreslayer recruitment slammed for anti-diversity practices

For years rumours have circulated around the Fyreslayers’ uniquely uniform appearance. This has culminated in an investigation begun this morning, sparked by evidence that the Runefathers are hiring duardin solely on their looks.

The Sacred Molten Alliance of Lodge Lords, an organisation that purports to represent the leaders of the Fyreslayers, has pushed back at the accusation and released a statement confirming that their hiring practices are strictly based on merit. They acknowledge that there is a look distinctive to the Fyreslayers, but claim ‘it is merely happenstance that the best fighters have bulging muscles, great orange mohawks, and look good in the nude.’ They go on to claim that they do value diversity, and are proud of the work they have done in this regard.

The Azyr Weekly attempted to verify these claims of a diverse fighting force, but has been stymied by what seems to be deliberate misdirection. Hours of negotiations with what we understood to be a local Runeson were wasted when we discovered we had been haggling with a janitor.

As we go to print, we have just received word of a concession by the Fyreslayers, requiring that all warriors must wear nametags while out in the field. The move has been positively received, but is seen as not going far enough by some. A petition requesting that ‘All Fyreslayer leaders dye their mohawks blue’ has been circulating amongst the cities of Azyr, and is quickly picking up signatures.
