The majority of the Family decided their path was heading in a different direction from the Sanctum of the Forbidden. Under the guidance of the Harbinger's apprentice, Diabela - many Cultists took on a new name, cover and purpose. They left the tainted Swamp of Sorrows via a recently captured ship and made their way into the remote lands of Northrend for further guidance. And thus, Sect of the Shath'Yar was born into a strong family of blood and shared desire.
Due to a few members having a disagreement with Sanctum Leadership, previous members of the guild formed their own. We have no connection to Sanctum of the Forbidden these days, though they are still very much of great influence to the guild and thought highly of for their beautiful story-lines and role-play.
