Circle of Basul
Circle of Basul is gives a public image of discipline, measured political movement and its leaders provide wisdom beyond their years. The Circle has been slow, increasing its sphere of influence over the decades(/centuries), including many members of royal lineage among its ranks. Its also made known that it will only use military force as a last resort, but Orthonys has been quick to pressure the Circle in ways that it has not anticipated before. And the Circle has a long history, with entire families devoted to their ideals and their coffers are not easily drained.
