The Liberators of the Coin

By:

The Liberators of the Coin is primarily an organization Halflings devoted to (insert trickster/thieving/Halfling god). They pattern themselves after a myth of the god stealing gold coins from his brother on the evening of his wedding. The stolen gold was a part of the wedding ceremony and its absence meant that the ceremony could not proceed. The theft resulted in the trickster being able to marry his brother’s intended.

There is no true central authority, so each sect is left to its own devices. Most prefer pick pocketing rather than burglary or other forms of theft. The money is used to further the ambitions and pleasure of each individual thief. There’s no charity in this bunch.

The sects are comprised of loosely grouped rogues and other ne’er-do-wells. In most cases, each sect has been brought under the leadership of a reasonably skilled thief, and there’s a moderate amount of organization, with the intention of keeping the group out of the hands of the law.

The sects are exuberant and playful. They are prone to brawling after drinking their fill of ale on the spoils of their religious efforts. When not actively celiberating they tend to stay in groups of 5 to 10 individuals. Each member of the cult wears a golden coin on a chain around their neck.

It is a stereotypical thieves guild... with halflings. Sigh

Needs something to distinguish this. Right now what is there is well written, but rather unremarkable.

Yes to what others said before. The myth about the wedding is a nice touch but overall the sub is very flat.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
