Butchers' Guild

This organized crime ring started in Grüngarten, where it runs so-called "meat parlors", where customers can eat various meat products - which are outlawed in Grüngarten. To get meat, it has established secret supply trains from neighboring cities and communities, where it has branched out in other illegal activities (such as gambling and brothels). It is ruthless when it comes to threats to its businesses, and rumor has it that its enemies are sometimes killed, cut up, and served to unsuspecting guests.

If something popular is outlawed, people will find a way to get it anyway. This has been true throughout the ages, and the Butcher's Guild shows a rather peculiar example for Urbis. The idea for this particular crime ring is based on organized crime during the American Prohibition.
