Sellswords of Punjar
The Beggar-King began his rise to power several years ago and established a large manor-house in the slums of Punjar. He soon began bringing a veritable army of mercenaries, brigands, and thieves into his employ in order to challenge the authority of the Thieves Guilds.
While the Beggar-King himself has not been seen for quite some time, his lieutenants have continued to wage war on the Guild. Despite all efforts, the Guild has not been able to quell this uprising as easily as most, and their frustration grows.
The Beggar-King is also believed to be responsible for the strange black fog that has been spreading over Smoke in recent weeks. No one else has really gotten close enough to determine its origin yet but it starting spreading from the Beggar-King’s demesne.
