Larcenous

Even in the most cosmopolitan of ages, society has found certain needs and services too questionable to accept, or had members who believed their strength or cunning entitled them to whatever they could take. Some organizations rise among these various criminal enterprises to provide such demands, regardless of the risk. Among this often ruthless and dangerous crowd are the likes of shady gunslingers, ethnic gangs, bookies, smugglers, bandits, fences and launderers.
