The Dark Brotherhood
The Dark Brotherhood is a secretive group with members all over Khalathor. The group’s main aim is simple: to strike a bargain with the demonic powers that erupted in Galdarin and take over all of Khalathor. Most members of the group believe that deals can be struck that demons (or devils) would honour. There is some sense to this belief, as the members are willing to serve up a significant portion of the population as a bargaining chip to the fiends. So far the group’s efforts have not met with large-scale success, at least not that anyone is aware of, though there have been some localized issues involving fiends. There have even been a few instances of the entire populations of some remote villages disappearing into the night, never to be heard from again…
The groups members fall into two broad categories. First, there are those members who remain integrated with society, gathering information and resources for the group’s purposes. Such members range from shopkeeps and stableboys to those in positions of power. The second category of members are those who are devoted to cult activities. Such members can be found in the hidden places of the world, engaged in demonic study, kidnapping, sacrifice, or even more terrible things of which I will not write.
