An extremely powerful set of ideas. As MJS said, this one bears the stamp of greatness.
It can be divied, and remodeled, and reset into any world, and all of it still holds together, so long as there's greed and caution in the human heart. Brilliantly done, overall. Congratulations. Go to Comment
yeah, I know it should technically be my submission, but Murometz worked for a long time on this and I really mainly helped with the organization and the day to day planning. He did all the background information, the guilds, and the entire base idea was his.
Okay. This starts out as the stereotypical "mobster warfare story". The tale also presume a highly romanticized version of a thief's life, as one can hardly imagine murderous gutter scum playing these "noble thieves' games" in a realistic setting. Magic items as rewards in thieves' games also seem a little far fetched to me.
On the other hand there is a lot of love and affection in this post. The roast is particularly enjoyable. There is also a lot of love put into the different guilds and I salute that. A good resource for any GM indeed.
In retrospect I notice the exceptional high score awarded to this post by other Strolenites. It seems that traditional thieves guilds in high magic settings is to their taste.
That is a matter of taste and preference.
From me this sub gets:
4.0 Base for good subs
+1.0 for diligence and affection
-1.0 for features that I find not to my liking

I give these out so rare that I almost hate giving them out. But this one is definately worth the effort.
Good job Mur and Sras... I tip my hat to you both... wonderful job.
I would like to say that, everything is set up perfectly. There is a lot of information that doesn't bog down in the particulars. The added events are a nice touch, this just speaks of time and effort put into it. This is a v2.0 submission.
The added brief description of the thieves guilds is wonderful. Enough odd flavor to begin any amount of mayhem to the players.
