Description[]

"With a strong tradition for seafaring and a reputation for robbery and murder, most call the Brethren pirates. This assessment is not far from the truth. Though the Brethren follow a Code of the Sea, they are loosely organized and live mostly to plunder riches from the weak. All of their gods have some link to the ocean, which they consider the source of all life and all wealth." ― Brethren description from the game

History[]

The Brethren is practiced by a great amount of small independent lords. Usually ruling on one or a few islands in the middle of the ocean, usually far enough from the coast so to not attract dangerous attentions, followers of the Brethren hang on an harsh, dangerous life of war and plunder.
