[Pronunciation: dun KAH-ren]

The Dun’cahrun is an organized crime syndicate that is based in Nyxiana but now also has a prominent presence in Antiford, namely in Argenstrath. It is a loose association of criminal groups that share a common organisational structure and code of conduct. The basic group is known as a family or clan, each of which has claim over a territory where it operates, usually a town a neighborhood/district if in a large city.  

They are distinguished from other gangs and mobs by their adherence to a central set of rules as well as their use of information and intimidation over pure brutality or violence, though they are certainly not opposed to the latter. The dun’cahrun has a formal hierarchy that allows them to efficiently run a variety of large-scale criminal activities. These include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • Extortion 
  • Vote rigging and political bribery
  • water condensing
  • counterfeiting currency and documents
  • arbitrating disagreements (especially those of criminal nature
  • Labor racketeering
  • protection racketeering
  • Smuggling (weapons and cultural wears such as art)
  • loan sharking
