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.

Strange Love Affair

       By: rickster

Ursula is a were-bear; she and Stewart, the bailiff of a rural feudal estate, are lovers, sharing all their secrets as lovers often do. Recently something has been taking livestock. *He* must deal with suspicions that a bear is involved (one has been seen nearby...): *she* must defend herself if it is revealed (perhaps by a jealous suitor, perhaps accidentally) that she is a lycanthrope. The adventurers might be called in to track the hungry beast(s) and discover her secret, but be able to reveal that the culprits are a small pack of wolves that has moved in to the area. The adventurers might earn the gratitude of both Ursula and Stewart, depending on what they reveal, and to whom.
