24 Ruthless Futures Trader

The trading pits in Theynes rank among the deadliest and most dangerous places on the planet. There futures traders like yourself execute contracts and their rivals in a vicious market where nearly anything can be bought or sold, in large lots, for gold, for delivery at a future date. Any number of traders may have purchased any specific contract, with the final award going to the last trader standing. Of course, if there is only one contract-holder remaining when the day comes, no fighting is necessary.


  • A Ceramic Knife.
  • A Large & Well-Worn Allas Hide Ledger (counts as Shield).
  • 2d6 Futures Contracts detailed within the above Ledger.
