Gangs of Cenril

From HollowWiki

Ever since the Preklek invasion, and the pirate raids which toppled the existing city hierarchy, Cenril has been a lawless morass of murderers, thugs, black marketeers, and people just trying to live their lives without getting shanked in the process.

After Geoff Burnham died, followed by Grot and Vaduuk's respective shuffling off of mortal coils, the place has pretty much seen gangs doing what gangs do best: scrapping over turf in the absence of law and order.

Here, then, are some of the gangs currently active in Cenril, and the areas they have staked out, or are contesting.

Their membership can be purely NPCs, NPCs led by a PC, or consist of PC members only.

OOC Notes

Please join in the fun. There's plenty of space in Cenril for numerous gangs and factions, as well as the inevitable corresponding intrigues, small-scale skirmishes, and territorial politics.

An umbrella Arc has been created to help organise the RPs related to the Cenril Underworld.

See Arc:New Troubles in Old Cenril for more details.

An off-site non-canon forum has been created at to assist in sharing plot ideas and information prior to IC implementation, as well as to help co-ordinate RPs.

This page will remain as a canon 'Who's Who' of gangs and factions as they rise and fall during the flow of RP.

Definitely feel free to add to the list of gangs as you join in, but please make sure to note if there is a PC involved in/operating that clan's activities: this is so people know who to Hmail if they want to incorporate the gang NPCs into an RP.

For those who aren't wikiholics, and who want to have a gang-related RP added to the wiki, please feel free to approach me via Hmail, or via AIM on username corneliusvonpenzance. - Valentin
