This letter is found pinned the the door of your office
(December 18th, Century of the Anchovy)
To whichever Ombudsmen may be concerned,
A welcome to you and your business partners from myself and the rest of the Board of Governors. Your entrance into our family could not come at a more joyous occasion. This fiscal period we have seen tremendous growth once stabilized to Mr. von Lipwig's fiat currency.
But growth comes with tight pants does it not Gentlemen? The Beggers' Guild has been scratching at our doors whining for equalization payments while the Thieves' Guild has gone and raised quotas yet again. This is where you come in. The economic tailors.
And with Hogwatchnight only a week away I do hope you enjoy Fruitcake. It was my wife's idea, not fond of it myself you see, but none the less it should serve you well over the winter. You should find it in a box next to the oak tree we had delivered to spruce up the office a bit.
If he has not already done so, our representative Mr. Serius should be dropping by any day to get you up to speed on our operations. Best of luck,

Guild Alert: Unlicensed Halfling Thief on the Prowl
(Dated December 21th, 2007, Century of the Anchovy)
Sash the Halfling
Where-abouts unknown, last seen in the North-West of town.
[There is an iconograph of a young halfling female. She is snearing from beneath a cloak that covers most of her small frame. Her left hand, seen holding a bottle of elvish brandy, is missing the ring finger. The picture seems to be taken at the edge of a busy street.]
The young miss Sash is to be escorted to Mr. Tartin of the Merchant's Guild. He can be located at the corner of Edgeway and Ankh Street within "The Plaid Diamond" jewelery shop.

Guild Alert: Local Annoyance
(Dated December 19th, 2007, Century of the Anchovy)
Often found near the docks.
[There is an iconograph of an aged man wearing what seems to be a suite of seashells. His hair is scraggly and wet, and a long unkept beard rims his lower face. He is wild eyed and the imp clearly caught his image in the middle of screaming.]
Warning: this old man is beligerent and fanatical. He has not yet been physically violent, but contantly verbally harrasses the dockside shops. The local fishmongers and dockworkers have put together a reward to whomever can rid them of the this old-timer.

Guild Alert: Slave-Trader
(Dated December 23th, 2007, Century of the Anchovy)
Location unknown, but is known to affiliate with the Blackwater Gang in the North-West district of town.
[There is an iconograph of a shadow. You can make out leather boots at the bottom of the photograph, however much of the subjects features are blurred by a darkness that seems to be reaching out towards to iconagrapher.]
Slavery is illegal and currently a hot political issue due to Ms. Dearheart's Golem Trust publicity. It is therefore in our best interests to distance ourselves for old, questionable contacts. The Guild wishes to make a public show that we indeed support the elimination of slavery as a form of commerce. The apprehension of Theor H'rashin, and subsequent delivery of him to the Watch, will help our public relations on this manner.
