Saga of the Serpent's Skull
The Freeman’s Brotherhood is a group of notorious insurrectionists and rebels, working throughout Eleder‘s Outerwall district to distribute funds and food where they are needed. Its members are considered folk heroes by the populace of Outerwall, and are easily recognized by the inhabitants, who would never reveal the Brothers’ identities outside the slums. The Brotherhood maintains no fixed location, moving throughout the district to prevent its destruction, and relying on the efforts of community members to provide them with shelter and meeting places.
Many groups affiliated with the Brotherhood have taken up an armed insurgency against the Colonial Sargavan government. Their stated goals include the abolition of slavery throughout Sargava, the return to native rule/self-determination of Mwangi natives, and the total abrogation of non-native sovereignty. The Sargavan government has outlawed the Brotherhood and declared it a terrorist group, charging the Brotherhood with numerous crimes including destruction of state property, violence against foreigners, disruption of trade, and the abduction and assassination of non-natives.
