A New Hope
The Lord's Alliance
The Lords’ Alliance is a coalition of rulers from cities and towns across Kalderia, who collectively agree that some solidarity is needed to keep evil at bay. The rulers of Shadow Harbour, Highriver, Phandalen, and other free cities in the region dominate the Alliance, and every lord in the Alliance works for the fate and fortune of his or her own settlement above all others. The agents are chosen primarily for their loyalty, and are trained in observation, stealth, innuendo, and combat. Backed by the wealthy and the privileged, they carry quality equipment (often disguised to appear common), and spellcasters tend to have a large number of scrolls with communication spells.
Pros: Goals are in alignment with a return to civilization.
Cons: Methods seem underhanded and often times too political.
