Roleplaying the Oathband of Etrius
The Oathband urges its wearer to forge alliances with people of common purpose. The Oathband is personally opposed to the existence of Bane and will seek to destroy his followers. As such, the band treats it’s bearer as an ally in this quest. The Oathband will speak in short echoed phrases to its bearer, which only the bearer can hear, diplomatically convincing the bearer to join in its quest. The band is less interested in finding allies who are pre-disposed to the fight against Bane, but instead makes a special effort to find allies in new lands that walk different paths. This was Etrius' objective in forging the alliances with the Fey, and it is likely for this reason that the Oathband chose Martha to be its bearer over Balasar or Menin.
