For us to live any other way was nuts. Uh, to us, those goody-good people who worked shitty jobs for bum paychecks and took the subway to work every day and worried about their bills were dead. I mean they were suckers. They had no balls. If we wanted something, we just took it. If anyone complained twice they got hit so bad, believe me, they never complained again.
The imperial underworld is ruled by the four lord of shadows, a group referred to as such by the Night’s Watch, who are the most powerful outlaws in Imperial territory. Infamous among their peers, these powerful crime leaders include (from left to right above:) the baron Greyfallow, thief guild leader Locke Cameron, Sigismund van Edalav and Phobos nar’Amonaga.
In recent events, Baron Greyfallow’s guild has become tangled with the Crimson Queen’s House of Red and Black, and their war escalated with the summer Gathering. The entire gambling community was thrown into havoc with Morgan Flintshire’s victory in the midseason melee.
