The Brotherhood of Shadows is Orenia's largest criminal organisation. It is known throughout the world as a relentless organisation that commits various crimes, ranging from pickpocketing and petty theft to assassinations and heisting.
The Brotherhood of Shadows was created by Avandra, Bhaal, Cyric and Mask. These gods thought the world was too peaceful in times of peace and wanted people to take fate into their own hands by stealing and killing.
The Brotherhood has existed since the beginning of civilization. The first members were recruited by the gods themselves and it grew steadily.
