Cadwallon: City of Thieves
In the dark of a moonless night, a lonely militiaman shuffles along a deserted alley. The sound of a small stone striking the pavers brings him about just in time to see a black-clad figure vanish around the corner. Stop! Thief! Kornak hollers. Cursing under his breath, he runs after the fleeing shadow. Just another night in Cadwallon... Welcome to Cadwallon, a city of vagabonds and outlaws of every kind. The Duke and his brave militia struggle to maintain order, but it is the mighty guilds and wealthy merchants who rule the city... and the most feared of these is the shadowy Guild of Thieves. You have joined the ranks of this infamous society seeking your own path to wealth and glory. Your tiny gang has been chosen to relieve the fat merchants of the city from a portion of their excess wealth. But there are many factions within the Guild, and yours is not the only band working in the district tonight! In fact, your greatest challenge may not be the militiamen who guard the streets... Cadwallon: City of Thieves is a fast-paced game of cunning thievery and ruthless skullduggery in a fantasy city steeped in magic and intrigue. Two to four players each control their own gang of four thieves, competing to amass the greatest haul of loot from the many carefully locked chests scattered about the board. This is no friendly competition, however, and there is little loyalty among thieves in Cadwallon! The most successful players are as likely to claim their loot from the other gangs as they are to do the time-consuming legwork themselves. And always there is the Guild, directing the gangs from the shadows, and offering rich rewards to those who follow its will. But there is little time to waste; even the slow-witted militiamen will eventually raise the alarm... and woe be upon any thief who fails to creep away before the lawmen seal the district!
