West Borrough District

By:

The ever present breeze from the water pushed the litter around constantly. The nice black cars and their sharp dressed occupants are sharp contrast to the broken people who live here. The Gloom comes from more than the lack of city lighting. And remember, nobody knowns nothing.

The West Borrough District is neither a borrough, nor in the west. It is named after the main stree that runs through it. It is west of Pyle St, the dividing street.

This area is a mix of old industrial and older housing. To say it is run down would be accurate. The ever present breeze from the water pushed the litter around constantly. Public lights are no longer lit, and the gloom comes from more than the shadows. The broken people hang about their bars, alleys, cheap rooms, and low end jobs. Nobody looks up because nobody wants to know what is going on.

You see, The Family, runs its operations out of the District. So here is where they meet, in and around their semi-legitimate operations. They even do a great deal of business in and around the district.

There are a few really nice places here, some clubs, a strip pit, restaurants, and hotel apartments. They are supported by the Family Men and their hangers on. "Nice People" don’t go to these places unless they are one step from being one of the Broken People.

Order of the Moonbeard

       By: valadaar

Among the assortment of organized criminals who live in the great city, few command greater fear the Moonbeard Order.

They of course do not call themselves that, but have earned the moniker from their fashion of dying their large beards with lye to produce a distinctive crescent shape running from earlobe to earlobe. This is meant as a taunt for their enemies, for it clearly outlines their throats.

They also wear garb similar to the northern tribesman, carefully tooled leather and showing multiple, colourful glyphs.

They are feared due to the intense discipline that their group maintains, due to their origins as a warrior-sect.

They serve as paid thugs, enforcers and assassins within the city, with the client simply ordering a service from the organization, not hiring an individual. Apart from making the request and providing payment in full in advance, the order completes the assignment themselves.

Their order has many moles through the organizations of the city, and more than a couple of nobles. As such, no organized move has been made against them since their chief activity is directed against other members of the crime world. It is said that their services have been useful for those in power as well, further protecting them from persecution.

Their religion holds that their time in this world is vanishingly brief, and largely unimportant except as training for the Great Battle.

The order is very utilitarian with weapons choice - they simply use the tool needed for the occasion, though not without having trained extensively with it beforehand. Daggers, garrottes, swords, bows, battle axes, polearms, wagons, even siege engines have been used to carry out their contracts.
