The Arcadian Brotherhood

The Arcadian Brotherhood

Based in the Arcadian docks district, this simple band of thieves has grown to become a strong faction within the city walls. Starting with a single pawn shop as their front, the guild now owns several other buildings and strong houses throughout the city.

The Brotherhood has their fingers in a number of illegal and legal activities, including burglary, protection racketeering, brokerage, fencing, appraisal, and even the renting of their thieves for tomb robbing.

They take their business, and their word, very seriously. Guild members are not allowed to kill while on a job, seeing such as acts as careless and drawing unnecessary attention to the guild. Members are expected to live up to the code of Honor Among Thieves, and those who betray their fellows or give up guild secrets end up losing a hand or their tongues.
