The Golden Solidarity was an ancient, short-lived splinter sect of the Prophecies of Kalistrade. Its members were known as Golden Disciples.1


One of the numerous offshoots of the Prophecies of Kalistrade that arose in the wake of their founder's disappearance, the Golden Solidarity was not reconciled with the mainstream Kalistocrats after Kalistrade's resting place was found. Instead, the Golden Disciples took refuge in the Kellid city of Kestrillon on Inteper Isle, where they thrived and spread their possessions among the populace. However, this wealth eventually attracted the attention of Tar-Baphon, who invaded Kestrillon in 861 AR. The Golden Solidarity perished alongside Kestrillon's populace, and they continue to roam the renamed Isle of Terror as undead to this day.1


The Golden Disciples believed that Kalistrade promoted personal wealth not to craft one's own afterlife, but to build personal cults of philanthropy and earn immortality after death through worship. They wear saffron-gold clothing but refused to wear valuables, believing that the only public wealth should be distributed for personal glory.2


During its heyday, the Golden Solidarity's investor-theologians engaged in lively debates with mainstream Kalistocrats in Druma, who saw their charity as reckless.1
