The Decay of Elmbridge
The Family of Blood
The Family is a collection of thugs, swindlers, assassins, pickpockets, and slave traders who share a common disdain for the military and political powers in the city. They feel that they are the neglected of the city who are used as fodder by the military and considered little more than a resource by the city officials and guard. Any who do not own property are granted no rights by the law – even enlisting in the military or guard only earns them 1/4 the normal pay. Often, they aren’t even given the choice to enlist, being drafted and forced to the front lines. There is no family among them who has not lost a loved one to the draft.
They fight for their well being and freedom through the only avenue left to them: crime.
