FACTION OVERVIEW

The Harpers are a fictional organization, created by a scribe in the dales, known as Edward of the Greenwood. It is described as a decentralized, grassroots, secretive organization with members being near-autonomous. The Harpers in his fiction have “cells” and lone operatives throughout Faerûn, although they interact and share information with one another from time to time as needs warrant. The Harpers’ ideology is noble, and its members pride themselves on their integrity and incorruptibility. Harpers do not seek power or glory, only fair and equal treatment for all.

However perhaps it is a good idea who’s time has come. Many have taken up the mantle of these Harpers and seek to act in its ideals.

Harper agents are trained to act alone and depend on their own resources. When they get into scrapes, they don’t count on their fellow Harpers to rescue them. Nevertheless, Harpers are dedicated to helping one another in times of need, and friendships between Harpers are nigh unbreakable. Masterful spies and infiltrators, they use various guises and secret identities to form relationships, cultivate their information networks, and manipulate others into doing what needs to be done. Although most Harpers prefer to operate in the shadows, there are exceptions.

BELIEFS

  • One can never have too much information.
  • Too much power leads to corruption.
