Corruption of Azim
The Darkrunners are a mercenary group made up of mostly dark elves and dwarves. They are a corrupt organization, using their connections to take prisoners (and sometimes, but not often, political enemies of wealthy people) to the Far Waters Prison Colony. They have little central organization and are more a loosely affiliated set of “cells” that make up a kind of “underground railroad” to get prisoners to a ship headed to the colony.
Darkrunners are mostly concentrated in Validras due to the kingdom’s connection to the prison colony. Over time groups bearing their name have cropped up in major cities all over the land.
Most people in Calinor have heard of the Darkrunners, though outside of Validras they aren’t thought of as a serious threat.
