Treasure of the Old Gods
The Partisans are a clandestine group that voices political and civil opposition to the Corterran Empire. Their ultimate goal is to maintain peace and balance in Altamar, which has become tantamount to ending Imperial abuses of power and returning autonomy to all islands in the Estrellado. The Partisans abhor political violence and see it as a tactic of oppression. However, the Partisans do not see the destruction of the Empire as central to their goals and are willing to reach a peaceful resolution. Partisan operatives function in secret and are spread out over the Estrellado to form an impressive intelligence network. Placing operatives in positions of power is a common Partisan tactic.
The Partisans have existed for centuries and were originally founded by Gareth of the Gray Keep. They have always been dedicated to the preservation of peace and in Gareth’s day the greatest threat to peace was the resurgence of the Old Gods. Gareth tasked the old Partisans with seizing any lore pertaining to the Old Gods, which included all information on the Legendary Heroes and their quests. The Partisans were able to suppress much of this knowledge until only a vague understanding of the legends existed. With the Old Gods firmly resigned to the ether of history, the Partisans shifted focus to other tasks but knew that a day may come when the past would make itself known again.
