Teamus Steeps is an acquisitioner, not a thief. Admittedly, the nuance doesn’t play well with town authorities, but ever since he left his home in Ector over a misunderstanding with the assassins’ guild, he’s managed–mostly–to leave that reputation behind.
Unfortunately, the dark guild isn’t so forgiving. When the passes south begin to thaw, the guild is at his throat again, and this time they have leverage. Teamus knows that the butcher bill must be paid if he’s going to have any peace for his family, even if it means losing his soul.
And that’s if the tax collectors don’t catch him first.
