Iron Blade Guild
The Iron Blade Guild is a quasi-legal entity run by a teifling named Thomas Nimble. Ostensibly a trading House and Slaving Guild the organization is actually a cover for Saltwater’s Weep’s largest Thieves Guild. Nimble is aggressive in maintaining his control of the city’s crime and is said to hunt down and eliminate potential rivals.
It is said that the Iron Blade Trading Company pays much higher taxes than normal directly to the Warlord’s private accounts, which might go a long way towards explaining why Nimble’s offices above the Iron Stallion Inn are never searched or raided. This does not however, offer any sort of protection to any of the Guild who are caught by the city guard in the act of performing a crime.
It is said that Nimble is looking for the appropriate agents to open trading houses in other cities, but has yet to select anyone.
