An informal guild of performers and entertainers with a covert agenda of fighting oppression and the Scarlet Brotherhood.

Symbol: Lights, at least two, held in each hand or by many different people. Holding a light aloft, greeted by the same gesture, is a symbol of freedom among performers and slaves alike. This is used as part of other emblems or as a signal. Carrying a light in each hand is wasteful for a slave and a sign of defiance, but at the same time it happens enough by accident that it cannot serve to identify members.

Background, Goals, and Dreams: The Twin Lights want to spread joy and exterminate slavery and oppression of the human spirit; some members want to end all servitude and incarceration. They work through building hope, joy, and the strength among common people.

Enemies and Allies: With a secret agenda, the Twin Lights has few official allies, tough it shares its ideals with many good and chaotic organizations, especially chaotic good churches and resistance movements. The main enemy of the Twin Lights are the Scarlet Brotherhood, but they also fight other slavers such as the Sea Princes, Yellow Sails and Crimson Corsairs as well as corrupt and oppressive employers everywhere. Some members are such fervent revolutionaries that they consider all governments their enemies.

Secrets: The true goals of the society is shrouded in secrecy; not all members know of the revolutionary agenda. To most people it is merely a lose guild of entertainers.

Classes: Bards, monks, and rogues are favored, tough all classes are welcome.
