Hi! Welcome, welcome, what can we do for you today? Looking to buy or sell? Do you need something moved, or disposed of? Maybe you got skills in these departments, look for the small Recruitment sign in the back, and we’ll take care of you.
We have no history…but we have a future and it is the stars! The universe is a vast, dark and scary place. We’re here to make it a little more terrifying.
We are an organized crime syndicate based in one of the tallest skyscrapers in Tharsis on Mars.
We are led by a group of mysterious elderly men who are called The Van. The Van are usually seen wearing imperial Manchurian-Chinese clothing of the Qing Dynasty. The syndicate specializes mostly in assassinations, but are also involved in the trafficking of narcotics, Red Eye in particular. We also mine, explore, freelance, and are wiling to do ANYTHING for credits.
The rules of the syndicate are simple any member who attempts to leave, or fails to complete tasks, are punished by death.
I. Every Man Shall obey civil Command; the Captain shall have one full Share and a half of all Prizes; the Master, Carpenter, Boatswain and Gunner shall have one Share and quarter.
II. If any Man shall offer to run away, or keep any Secret from the Syndicate, he shall be marooned with one Bottle of Powder, one Bottle of Water, one small Arm, and Shot.
III. If any Man shall steal any Thing from the Syndicate, or game, to the Value of a Piece of Eight, he shall be marooned or shot.
IV. If any Man shall lose a Joint in time of an Engagement, shall have 400 Pieces of Eight ; if a Limb, 800.
V. If at any time you meet with a prudent Woman, that Man that offers to meddle with her, without her Consent, shall suffer present Death.
