The City Watch
In the slightly nicer area adjacent to the Necropolis, thugs dressed as City Watch shake down the citizenry.
For the extent of their apparent resources it can be assumed that in recent history they had a serious bank account, and had possibly been a state sponsored law enforcement agency. It is unknown if they are still funded outside their extortion racket.
City Watch seem to travel in small packs, wearing light to medium armor and helmets.
They carry a side-arm and some kind of spear-length bayoneted long gun, sometimes described as a ‘halberd with a gun in it’ or as a ‘gun-spear’.
Persons found by the City Watch, unable to pay bribes or (presumably) caught committing a crime are branded on the neck and tossed in a labor colony for the duration of the sentence.
