Forgotten Sagas of the 13th Age
The Ghost Runners, if you ask them, are the most skilled and best thieves in the city of Osis. If you asked anybody else (aside from other thieves) you’re likely to get a lot of swearing and grudging agreement. The Winter’s Knives are like using an axe, bloody and obvious. The Rag Men are a net, cast out to do with quantity what they can’t do with quality. The Ghost Runners aren’t so crude as the others and pride themselves on being all but unnoticed. Only long after the money or goods are gone will the victim realise they’ve been had.
Whether anybody else admits it or not, the Ghost Runners are the most successful thieves in Osis, both in terms of keeping money flowing to their purses and not getting caught doing so. They specialize in burglary, pickpocketing, con games, and smuggling. They rarely venture into violent crime, but they have been known to kill people who are a threat to their organization on occasion.
