Big Screwed Up Family
rating: 0+x

GM: "So ye're lookin' fer the Grimmwalds, eh?" says an elderly tavern patron with one arm

Briggs the Barbarian: "Yes, and what is it to you?"

GM: "I've come to warn ye: Stop looking. Ye won't like what you find. The Grimmwalds are as decadent as they are wealthy and powerful, and the only time they aren't at each other's necks is when they're at the necks of anyone unfortunate enough to have harmed one of them in anyway whatsoever. Or when of them says one has. Or whenever one stumbles on a secret they'd rather be kept as such. Or hinders any of their Matriarch's countless schemes. Sometimes they do it just for kicks. I'm telling ye, DON'T GET IN WITH THE GRIMMWALDS!!!
