Brotherhood of the Broken Chain
The only goal of the Brotherhood of the Broken Chain is to abolish slavery from the face of Tellene. The Brotherhood works both overtly and covertly to attain its goal. Brothers infiltrate slave rings and report numbers, locations and caravan routes to their superiors. The Brotherhood then ambushes the slave merchants and frees their captives. Members also smuggle arms to the captives and instigate slave rebellions. As a last resort the Brotherhood will purchase, then free the slaves. They do not do this often because it is costly and directly benefits the hated slave merchants.
The Brotherhood formed only a few years ago. However, membership is growing rapidly as many freed slaves join the ranks of the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood of the Broken Chain is closely allied with the Face of the Free and receives financial backing from that church to help in its endeavors. The Brotherhood currently concentrates its operations in Pel Brolenon, Mendarn, Vrandol and Ul-Karg. Recent successes have been slave rebellions in Mendarn and Vrandol and the freeing of more than 100 slaves from Ul-Karg.
