Sentinals of Larith
Larith has more than one small guild of thieves, but perhaps the most influential guild is called The Last Laugh. A notorious thieves guild that operates in the Cauldron. Their membership is numerous and they rule the underbelly of Cauldron with both a smooth tongue and an iron fist. Who leads them, where they are based and what their ultimate motives may be are not known to any but a few outside of the guild. The guild’s symbol is the silhouette of a laughing jester, shown in profile. The guild oversees various rackets and specializes in security, blackmail, extortion, and assassination.
What is known however, is that they are not a force to be taken lightly, and that there is a uneasy agreement between The Last Laugh and Larith’s Town Guard to stay out of each other’s business. Whatever their ultimate goals lie, it is also common knowledge that, for a price, a member of The Last Laugh will do almost anything.
The guild’s leaders, called Jesters, form an inner circle that oversees all guild activities. Speculation abounds that at least one of the guild’s Jesters is a high-ranking town official or noble. While most operatives obviously operate in secret, some operate in the open, and from time to time folks will be seen wearing a grinning harlequin mask or face-paint that clearly indicates that they are aligned with The Last Laugh.
