The Founders endeavor to find out more about several promising leads they learnt the day before.
The four Bandit Houses are:
House Cattanei (aka Serpent’s Breath): The Founder of the house was also the founder of Pitax.
House Liacenza (aka Iron Fox): Have lost a great deal since the rise of King Castruccio. Their two leaders vanished under mysterious circumstances.
House Strocalle (aka Dark Wind) Have great wealth but little influence. They helped King Castruccio in his rise to power.
House Vascari (aka Riversong) Control all water trade.
Minognos-Ushad (aka The Mother of All Wyverns aka The Eater of Kings) lives in Hunger Dark, a dark cleft in Tangle reach to the north west of Pitax.
Alora Nuski was once the leader of a group of bandits called The River Razors. She hated how Pitax changed under the rise of the new king and attempted to overthrow him. The rebellion was put down and she was the only survivor. She moves around a lot to avoid capture but was last seen in the north near Thousand Voices.
The Tusker Riders are a tribe of fifty Hill Giants who have tamed a herd of mastodons. Their leader is called Cob Moleg. King Castruccio gained his allegiance through the use of gold, flattery and, it is said, magical cohesion.
The seven tribes of The Tiger Barbarians form an army under Pitax’s control. They know the plains better than anyone and would have an advantage over any army they fought there. They are led by Villamor Koth aided by his cousin Tolg. The morale of the barbarian hoard is strained by presence of The Tusker Raiders.
