Refugee Fairness Committee
The refugee community seeks to counter the current resentment within seaton through means, organizations and leaders that seek to improve their prospects but due to desperate new arrivals, factional infighting and no consensus, all have ultimately failed. The current half dozen or so are divided and ineffective however that could slowly be changing as one group is beginning to gain wider support among the larger refugee community.
The RFC began as a group that wanted to air refugee grievances and open honest dialogue, led by a charismatic refugee Ke’losar Dundrige, despite his fiery speeches, the supporters and influence of the group remained small.
That has lately begun to change since local war hero, Brac Vairret has recently become a vocal supporter of the aims of the organization and his support has resulted in an upsurge of membership for the RFC within the refugee community.
The RFC has recently become the unofficial spokesman and collective negotiators for a growing number of refugee workers acting more as a guild rather then simply an advocate for the membership.
Ke’losar given his recent success with bracs’ support has begun to call for a face to face round table conference mediated by lord sucondforth to address disputes and an official guild charter.
While this would be unprecedented since ke’losar is a refugee and commerce disputes are not his lordships chief concern, he is giving serious consideration to the requests.
Unfortunately there are serious problems, the most destructive is still hidden and internal, Rasten Waidborson sadly never had the same aptitude or good fortune as Brac Vairret. When their unit was reassigned to westkeep to replace losses due combat and disease he developed an infection and lost part of his foot, the officers felt he was not worth the expensive and limited magical healing. Sent north to recover, bitterness took root within him towards bracs’ good fortune and seatons’ military commanders, now all he seeks is bloody revenge for wrongs, real and imagined.
Rasten seeks to use the RFC to inflame the refugees into a massive bloody riot that will consume the town one day. He subtly urges the RFC to aggressively expand its membership and adopt a more militant stance which is a popular message among some members, and his advice on occasion sways even ke’losar.
* Rasten has made contact with a priest of Kurrell.
* A local merchant has a high placed informant within the RFC.
* Local thief has information about Ke’losar Dundrige that could be damaging if it was made public.
* Small militant RFC faction plotting “arson offensive” to pressure merchants to bargain.
* Brac Vairret is considering reenlisting and reassignment to westkeep, his loss would hurt the prestige of the RFC.
