Red Sashes

The semi-legendary vigilante brotherhood known as the Red Sashes – not for their apparel, which isn’t nearly so flashy, but for the red scarves they leave as calling cards – are whispered to be the “protectors of the common folk.” They’re said to have been formed generations ago, before the formation of the City Council, when power struggles between the (Masked) Lords, the Nobility, and the Guilds threatened to erupt into open war in the streets. Variously believed to have been formed in secret by the guildmasters, the nobility, the Lords, or simply disgruntled townsfolk, they grew into legendary defenders of the defenseless, (apparently) independent of any one faction.
