Shadows and Dust
The Gemcutters Consortium
The Gemcutters Consortium is a band of dwarves and gnomes, masters of gem cutting and jewel crafting, but also having their hands in the darkest parts of the market. Their niche is stealing gems and jewels, cutting them, setting them and then reselling them, making themselves an enormous profit in the meantime. They are well connected with some of the larger houses in the city, and have determined that the highest chance of making the Consortium the most money, with the least effort, is to change all of Hilea to be under their, and their like-minded fellows rule. Unfortunately, there are some individuals who have decided to take the offensive against the Gemcutters, and now many of their stores have been robbed and are starting to become the staging grounds for attacks in the dark. Originally these attacks were staged by the Bloodscales, but now have tapered off after the Battle in Back Ally.
