from the Introduction:
Jakálla Foreign Quarter is tough place, not quite lawless anarchy, but the authorities care little what happens to na- komé scum, foreigners and aliens and only shift themselves to intervene in crime when riots are threatened and inducements offered.
This leaves the field free for ‘freelance’ law enforcement by the inhabitants themselves and opportunities for those down on their luck to haul themselves out of poverty by preying on those even less lucky. Tsolyánu may be a paradise to its citi- zens, who hymn the Emperor every day for his divinely man- dated rule, but is a cruel place to the non-citizen, foreigner and outcast. The resultant gangsterism is tolerated as long as it stays within the walls of the Foreign Quarter and does not affect any citizens of any standing.
from The Plan:
Having been rescued from a days highly demeaning and unpaid labour in the sewers, the PCs will no doubt be curious as to what Jüggash has in mind. He ushers his men into the front room of a run down wine shop and explains the deal; evict the Ügremish, a bunch of no good Nakomé scum and he is willing to pay 40 hlásh, 10 up front, 30 on completion of job and bonuses for captives, 5 hlásh for a child under 14, 10 hlásh for a woman, and 12 hlásh for a man. There are 10 men, 12 women and 18 children as far Jüggash can tell.
