Thugs constantly prowl civilized areas in search of easily bamboozled merchants, travelers, and aristocrats to prey upon. Numerous gangs each possesses its own illicit specialty as well as a clearly defined turf.
Thugs are not usually needlessly violent, and prefer to concentrate their efforts on crimes that will make them the most money rather than spill the most blood. Thugs tend toward swindles and illicit trade instead of rape or murder, leaving such brutal acts of violence to sociopaths and unscrupulous thieves’ guilds.
