Exalted: The Misadventures of Silver Trout
The Honest Brotherhood is an ideology and political organization that espouses a “mortal first” philosophy. The organization has appeared in several nations and city-states of the Hundred Kingdoms, and claims that the time is right for humanity to rule themselves instead of being subservient to the Exalted or the gods. They avow that they have no desire to eliminate either type of entity, but that the existing default relationship of “gods and Exalts rule over men” is no longer tolerable.
In the city-state of Abinue the faction has risen to prominence under the leadership of Lord Steelcut. That faction’s stated goals are to take the opportunity provided by the Queen’s death to replace her monarchy with a democratic city council and to expel the Dragon-blooded from leadership positions.
