The Shadow Thieves
The Shadow Thieves are the principal Thieves Guild based in the city of Athkatla. Originally from Waterdeep, the guild were ousted from the city by the Lords of Waterdeep. Rumours abound that the guild has a loose working arrangement with Council of Six, as the merchants of Waterdeep are the main trading enemies of Amn.
The Shadow Thieves have set up a large training complex and testing ground for an Assassin’s Guild in Athkatla, with the ambition being to kill the Lords of Waterdeep.
Hierarchy within the Shadow Thieves is unclear, but there are a number of “Cloaks” led by individuals which are largely autonomous, but do co-operate together.
