"The Swords of Liberty are founded on the principles of freedom and a sharp disdain for what they see as oppressive monarchies across the continent. The Swords of Liberty emerged at the start of the Last War and began causing trouble both internally and externally. In the new peace, their numbers swell, as does their violence. They now foment war, staging attacks and raids, murdering and burning villages to draw Breland into war once again. The Swords believe that Breland was strong enough to win the Last War outright and that the other nations are too weakened and too afraid to put up much of a fight now. This view might be truer than the other nations would like to believe." - Eberron Campaign Guide, Chapter 3, page 75
