Overview: Most of the world knows the Kingdom of Shar by another name: the Scarlet Brotherhood. For decades, the Scarlet Brotherhood served as emissaries to foreign courts, providing services as sages and diplomats. Slowly working themselves into positions of trust and authority they bided their time until orders came for them to reveal their hand. Several nations fell almost overnight, and when they felt that their hands had stretched far enough, they called for a truce (to give themselves time to regroup).
Rediscovering Sunela came as something of a shock, not merely because the Empire in Exile outnumbered them, but because where they expected another realm like themselves, they were horrified to discover an impure, tainted Suloise population rife with half-breeds. Now the Brotherhood totters between maintaining their gains in the north and dealing with a new, deadlier threat to the west.
