Get to Know the Gangs of Ace of Shades

Posted March 24, 2018 by Amber in Bookish Things / 5 Comments


In order to survive on the streets of New Reynes, it’s smartest to join a gang.  The city has three major gangs to choose from, each of their own specialty.

Before relocating to New Reynes, you may wish to consider which Lord you’ll be pledging your allegiance to….

The Doves

The Doves are ruthless mercenaries and assassins.  They die their hair white to stand out.  If you ever find yourself in a dark alley with a Dove, you best say your prayers while running as fast as you can.

The Scarhands

The Scarhands are smugglers, bringing in all the best illegal wares from all over the world.  The Scar Market moves daily, and the contraband goods range from illegal magics to politically dangerous newspapers.  The Scarhands mark themselves with criss-crossing scars on their palms.

The Irons

You’ll find the Irons in every casino in the city, gamblers and dealers for hire to make sure that the House always wins.  It’s nearly impossible to lie to an Iron, because they are experts at reading a tell.  The tattoos on their wrists mark the iron gang – keep your eye open for the black club; that’s the Iron Lord.
