The Swords of Liberty
Karrnath has its Order of the Emerald Claw, Breland has the Swords of Liberty. This outlaw band of freedom fighters operates in small cells throughout the country, engaging in acts of violence against the crown as well as taking on select missions beyond the Brelish Borders. Membership in the Swords of Liberty is secret, and operatives wear Brelish blue hoods when meeting with other Swords.
The Swords of Liberty first appeared in the earliest days of the Last War, but the group has become more active in the past decade or so. The tenets of the Swords of Liberty are fairly simple and straighforward. During the last years of the Last War, the swords called for the abolishment of the Brelish crown and the formation of a new democratic government. Since the signing of the Treaty of Thronehold, the group has added to its message. Now it wants to spread democracy throughout Khorvaire to once and for all prevent another great war.
The organization attracts extremists and idealists alike and King Boranel has grown more and more concerned about the Swords and what they may do next. Since they have started attacking trade caravans and across the border the King has been forced to take military action against them. His troops in northern Breland are currently being assisted by the Xandrar City Guard.
