Only Evil Stirs in Wedhburg
The Faramar is a halfling word meaning chosen. The Chosen are seven different crime families that have existed in Wedhburg for centuries. Four of the families are halfling, two are human, and on is orc. They have all manner of illegal operations going on from protection, gambling, usury, arms dealing, smuggling, assassinations, and many others. They also have many legitimate business interests all over Wedhburg and Sembia. The Count of Wedhburg has long had an arrangement with the Faramar that they each pay a substantial bribe every year to him and the count allows the families to continue about their business. The Faramar are hesitant to pay a large portion of their profits to the Count, but the last family to challenge the bribe, The Boramar, was almost completely destroyed by the Count’s soldiers. The Boramar is now a shadow of what it once was and is a constant reminder to the Faramar not to go against the Count.
