In contrast to openly militant CABALS, coteries are organizations whose purposes are primarily social and scholarly. Joining a coterie gives one a greater sense of belonging and purpose, as well as providing friends with common interests to accompany one in an often dangerous world.

The coteries in existence are as follows:

Coterie
Description
Patron Immortal
Herald Historians of Serin Vanisse the Myth Weaver
Mystic Learned of Serin Taleroth the Lingering Singer

Coteries are not openly aggressive, like Serin's military cabals, and thus there are far fewer demands placed upon their members in terms of combat. Coteries may start fights, but must never declare war or invade cabals. Coteries form the core of Serin's social network, and those of any coterie may partake in the GOSSIP channel even away from the Traveler's Rest.

Note that Patrons and Nobles (Nobles of Valour, and Counts of Darkhaven) are considered a noteable resident of their respective town, but not tied directly to a coterie. You are welcome to join a coterie after buying one of these titles. However, joining cabals with these titles is not allowed.
