Rise of the Runelords
Volioker Briskalberd shared his insight into the local thieves guild with Craiuk:
Sandpoint’s largely a law-abidin’ town. Only real menace is those damn Sczarni. They’re an extended network of Varisian thieves, highwaymen, con artists, graverobbers, smugglers, and murderers. Its a small local gang here, nothing like back in Magnimar, but still they’re a constant thorn in Hemlock’s side. Oh they take care to maintain respectable jobs as laborers, fishermen, and hunters, but they’re all cruel and self-serving miscreants who draw their true income taking part in various scams and stunts. It’s rumored they used to have a smuggling operation tied to the Glassworks, but Laumord’s father, Rokuro, was far to scrupulous to tolerate that. Tried many a time to drag me into their mischief, but the forges of Kheldurhan will go cold before they get aid from this dwarf!
