Episode 210 Building an Iron Age Gang

Today's Topic Let’s make us a very old school gang

To further flesh out the world needed for the Marcus and the Jewels of Daivvavaahra heist story I knew I wanted a gang.  It would be easier to create a classic thieves guild, the trope is so common in fantasy.  However, it does not yet make sense in my world. The idea of guilds are starting to show up, however, they are currently only used in very common professions. Luckily this is not common enough in the city of BaurhDrakkas. I personally wanted a street gang to play the role of secondary antagonist.  I like the idea of having another group of criminals interfere with a burglary style heist story. 

So join Michael and I as we create a gang in the iron age city of Baurhdrakkas.
