The Heroes of Astoria
The Brotherhood of Shadows
Originating from a group of monks, this sect of bounty hunters and assassins grew into a world wide alliance of individuals who hunt down prey for gold. They operate with a strict set of guidelines, that only their members know about. Officially they do not have a leader, as each member is a freelancer in their own right, however there is a hierarchy of senior members who would not hesitate to enforce the rules, upon either their own member or a client who willingly break the agreement, which were established when this group was forged.
