Who we are and how we started:The Maenads were formed after a series of revelations starting on December 24th, 1988 AD (which is 1st Wyld-Rising in the First Year of the Revelation of the Holy Albino in the Maenad calendar) of the existence fo the Hellwyrm of Lyra (aka B'Harne) on this plane, and the need to take up arms against it.
The Maenads are both a philosophical and military organization, believing in any means necessary to banish the Hellwyrm back to the tenth level of Hell. Maenad beliefs: The Maenad system of belief pretty much parallels that of the Garou and established Jihaddi groups, with our own additions. Major points of note:

Application requirements:Generally the Maenads are invitation-only; we generally don't accept applications, but pick on the basis of exceptional courage, ferality, and steadfastness against the Hellwyrm; a known history of veneration of the Holy Albino is also grounds for membership. We are more than happy to assist other Jihaddi groups and JAOs, however.
Right now, we have only three major awards:
Order of the Judges (OtJ) - generally given to those who have performed above and beyond call to the Cause. Not restricted to Maenads. Roughly equivalent to the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Order of Saint Johnny (OSJ) - Given to those who have served above and beyond the call of duty in service to the Cause, even to the point of sacrificing life and/or health to do so. Very rarely awarded. Not restricted to Maenads. Roughly equivalent to a cross between the Medal of Honor and the Purple Heart.
Rites and Sacraments:Generally the same as other Jihaddi organizations (Jolt, UnHellthy Snacks (tm), NIN, Animaniacs, etc.) with the additions of the British comic 2000AD, Guinness stout, toad-in-a-hole, Moon Pies, punk, and the groups Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, and Exodus.
