Ye Olde Tobacco Shoppe is the premier tobacco and herb distributing business in Asgarnia, located in the kingdom's capitol, Falador. The business operates out of the city's western general store building and is targeted at both permanent local citizens and passing travellers. This organization has a darker underbelly, though, as it also deals under the table with strong, illicit, and addictive recreational substances.
In order to up sales and profits, company ambassadors have been hired to discreetly addict civilians to the substances available in Ye Olde Tobacco Shoppe. These are some of the schemes they have taken into practice...
- Exposing customers to tobacco smoking without explaining risks
- Inserting pulverized herbs into unsuspecting victims' drink
- Lacing products with nicotine
- Exposing customers to drug-induced highs
- Monopolizing drug supply for addicted customers
Ye Olde Tobacco Shoppe has many employees, but some of the positions available are not as traditional as those in more modest businesses.
- Falcons: these are individuals hired to watch over and report on events, spies and moles if you will.
- Hitmen: these are the businesses "heavies." They carry out most of the organized violence associated with the sale of hard drugs from Ye Olde's underbelly. Also called Sicaros.
- (None listed)
- Lieutenants: these are the overseers who supervise the employees doing the dirty work, hitmen and falcons. They handle designated areas.
