Rune Items


The burglar spine

Background: A guild of Thieves from Leyloch known as The Black Burglars stole the Crown Jewels of the Elves and plundered the Vault of the Dwarves. After decades of eluding capture, The Black Burglars were finally trapped in a rare cooperative action between the Elves and the Dwarves.

The Black Burglars were mostly composed of a halfling clan from the Glittering Isles in Leyloch. The dwarves beheaded the entire guild and took the smallest vertebrae from the most skilled members. This was done at the behest of the Dwarf King who respected the skill that bypassed his vaults' defenses without incident. These vertebrae were then crafted into a single Burglar's Spine along with the souls of it's contributors to become the rune item it is today.
