Members of the Andoran faction seek to topple tyrannies from within, aiding dissidents and freedom fighters with equipment, funds, or intelligence. They are fierce foes of slavery and can take extreme measures against those who buy and sell people. (Andoran is a country visually based around the Revolutionary War… if you totally whitewash American slavery. Many cities in the world – including your home base, Absalom – have legal slavery, and it’s Andoran’s mission to end the practice. They also dislike monarchies, prefering democratic voting even in the smallest of groups.)
Liberation: (5 PP) In the event that you are captured and forced into slavery, the faction mounts a rescue operation… freeing you from servitude without any material or physical effect. Any cost or penalty normally associated with being enslaved (including magical effects such as dominate person) is negated at no additional cost to you.
Tiller: (Fame 20, 2 PP) Your efforts to free slaves (especially halflings from Cheliax) have earned you a position among the secretive Bellflower Network, and you are considered a “tiller” in that organization. You gain a +3 bonus on Escape Artist checks to free slaves from bondage.
