The Rogue Monastery served as temple, military headquarters and home for the Sisters of the Sightless Eye for generations. It was here that the Rogues gathered in times of peace to train and in times of war to utilize that training. During the Sin War, the ancient Horadric Mages forged and enchanted a Weapon that also held the power to create powerful artifacts. When their union dissolved, this Horadric Malus was entrusted to the Sisterhood guarding the pass into the East.
When Andariel’s deceit overthrew the structure of the Sisterhood, a great struggle between the followers of Blood Raven and those of Kashya, erupted. The Rogues were forced to give up their ancestral home and the Monastery is now filled with voracious hellspawn. While all of these dark beasts are dangerous, the Overlord who guards the Malus is particularly brutal. Known as The Smith, this vile craftsman now uses the power of the Malus to create weaponry for the minions of Diablo.
