ABOUT

Above the Seven Knives enforcers are the darkblades, the primary spies and assassins of the guild. They are chosen from the ranks of the enforcers after they have proven themselves smart, stealthy, and ruthless enough to handle the guild’s more delicate and lethal business.

Seven tiny dagger tattoos ring the left eye of this hooded woman. She wears tight-fitting leather armor and carries two wavy-bladed daggers.

Darkblades are well known throughout Quodeth by the tattoos of seven blades ringing their right eye, and the pair of wavy-bladed daggers they wear on their belts. Though the tattoos make it difficult to hide among the people of Quodeth, Seven Knives darkblades are proud of their allegiance and often walk openly within Quodeth. While responsible for countless murders, darkblades are rarely arrested and, if so, never incarcerated or executed.

The Seven Knives thieves’ guild is the most powerful guild in Quodeth, and influential in several nearby cities as well.

Guild members rule the streets and even bend nobles and panjandrums to their will, controlling whole districts of the city as a shadow government. Among their many criminal activities are brutal protection rackets, extortion, thievery, smuggling, assassination, prostitution, and political bribery.
