In pursuit of liberty, in opposition to tyranny.
When the god Aroden died over a century ago, the catastrophe ushered in not only the Age of Lost Omens, but also a series of rebellions that founded revolutionary nations like Andoran and Galt. The Liberty's Edge faction hopes to see all forms of tyranny wiped from the Inner Sea region while cleansing corruption from even the good-intentioned states. Although the faction maintains warm relations with Andoran, it operates independently so as to limit the influence of unethical officials and minimize any warning that tyrants might enjoy.
Major Colson Maldris
Major Colson Maldris is a passionate leader who coordinates his agents' efforts from Absalom even though he would rather be out in the field drenching his greatsword in the blood of tyrants and slavers. Maldris was the youngest officer to wear the golden eagle emblem upon his shoulders as a member of Andoran's Eagle Knights, and upon attaining the rank of captain he was reassigned to Absalom to cement Andoren ideals there. In 4711 AR, he was elevated to the rank of major for his effective recruitment and command of like-minded Pathfinders who helped propel the Andoran faction to a position of prominence within the City at the Center of the World. Since uncovering corruption in Andoran's own council, Maldris has taken a leave of absence from the Eagle Knights so as to battle tyranny without the direct oversight of his enemies.
The Liberty's Edge Pathfinder
While many of the Pathfinders who work with Liberty's Edge hail from Andoran, Galt, and other freedom-loving regions, some come from distant lands and find that their ideals align closely with those of the faction. Escaped slaves, indigenous people oppressed by colonists, and political radicals often find themselves working for Maldris while traveling the world on other business. Pathfinders skilled in diplomacy and subterfuge, prowess in the wilderness, effectiveness in battle against those enslaved by undeath, and—due to Maldris's time with the Gray Corsairs, a secretive branch of Andoran's navy—experience as sailors often excel as members of Liberty's Edge. Many of these Pathfinders also pursue membership in the Eagle Knights, which values Maldris's mission and parallel efforts. Most Liberty's Edge faction Pathfinders are good- or chaotic-aligned.
Aiding Your Cause
Pathfinders with allegiances to the Liberty's Edge faction often perform acts of diplomacy, sabotage, and proselytizing while carrying out their primary objectives for the Decemvirate. Whether providing moral support to the downtrodden, delivering messages to agents deep undercover in distant lands, or acting as a thorn in the side of slavers throughout the region, a Liberty's Edge operative improves his reputation by spreading freedom's ideals wherever he goes. A member of this faction should be willing to bend the rules of tyrannical law in order to plant the seed of liberty, even when doing so requires employing questionable techniques.
