from the introduction:
In the city of Altdorf, five men, mostly unknown to each other, pose as common thugs in response to an advertisement placed by one Borta Zgltngzy, the fool of Altdorf. Each have a reason to be there and it doesn't involve getting paid a few shillings. By taking the job they are entering a subterranean world of con-artists, thugs, watchmen and nobles. To succeed they will need skill, luck and most of all a poker face, as they take a chance with the trickers dice.
