Nightmares of the Last War
The bilge rats are a criminal gang that operate out of the docks district in Stormreach.
The main activities of the gang involve larceny, aggravated robbery, extortion, racketeering and occasionally murder. The rats mostly operate in and around the harbour and docks but occasionally stage raids on more wealthy districts.
The Bilge rats have risen to such strength due to the fact that many members are wererats, a fact that they take great pains to hide from the general public, the gang makes use of partially domesticated dire rats to mislead any investigators and anyone finding out too much is often found in a gutter with their face gnawed off.
Due to the assassination of the head rat Carther and a number of his inner circle the future of the rats is now uncertain.
