The Troubled Lands
The Guild, or the Thieves' Guild, is a criminal organisation dedicated to the control and regulation of thievery in The Free Cities. They are based in the Free City of Pax, which they rule in all but name.
In late 2016 AE, the Guild spent significant resources funding an expedition to the lost dwarven fortress of Anvilmount, seeing an opportunity to plunder the Vault of the Mountain King of its notorious riches, including a family heirloom once belonging to its leader, Graden Blackpick. Their backing allowed Captain Elbi, an explorer and treasure hunter, to put together a ship of specialists to sail to those lands and crack the vault. They sent a trusted Guild agent, Vysys Thrynn, to oversee the expedition and ensure its success.
In 2017 AE, the Guild, which had fallen into debt from funding their expedition, was nearly wiped out by The Bratva, who had suddenly grown bold and managed to seize control of the city. Only the timely intervention of the Waveblade and her crew managed to secure the Guild's futures in Pax.
