It’s been a while but the urge to write is back so here we go!
A reclusive widow, a grand masquerade, a priceless relic; sounds like the ideal score for you and your crew of scoundrels! You have the perfect plan, what could go wrong?
The Lady Evelyn Mandalay is throwing an exclusive masquerade ball in honor of the anniversary of her late husband・・s untimely death. Doskvol・・s most influential citizens will be attending the event being held at the Mandalay estate, Blackchapel Hall. On display will be many of the late Lord Mandalay・・s most valuable treasures, including the legendary scepter known as the Shrouded Eye. The relic of an ancient era, the Shrouded Eye is rumored to possess supernatural powers including placing a curse on those that dare use it.
You and your crew of shadows don・・t care much about curses or magical powers. You・・re much more interested in the smoky, fist-sized diamond on the scepter and the fact that stealing it will finally make you square with Lord Scurlock. Of course, you・・re not the only thieves in the city and the Blackchapel Gala is a target too tempting to pass up. Don・・t worry though, you and your crew have the skills and the perfect plan to execute the heist of the century!

Will you rise to power in the criminal underworld? What are you willing to do to get to the top?
