The Darkness Rising
A former,retired gang leader from the old days of Riddleport, his life of crime was far from lucrative and in fact cost him his health, his fortune, his family, and his left hand. With his wife dead, his sons exiled, and much of his fortune gone, he took what meager funds he could scrape together and was eventually able to purchase the Gold Goblin, a once-famous gambling hall that had fallen on hard times. He finds himself too old to relocate or return to a life of crime, and has tried to turn the Gold Goblin into a modestly profitable business venture. He no longer considers himself a part of Riddleport’s crime scene, he still has enemies among the city’s criminals who would love to see him ruined. Despite his attempts to “go legit,” he still lives under the ever-present shadow of retribution. Davram and his gang had been prospering under the leadership of Saul. There reputation in the city of Cyphers has grown to the point where they have been noticed by several of the other crime lords. Either out living their usefulness or perhaps becoming too powerful to control in Saul’s eyes he decided it was time that he no longer needed their services and ordered to have them “whacked”. Unfortunately for old stumpy this went horribly wrong and it ended up in his death at the hands of a new ally of Davram, Lavender Lill.
