Here are a couple of extras for the Furthest Shadow War (as published in the Thieves' Arm from the Unspoken Word) that fell out due to space limits. I hope you find them of some interest.

Gang Interaction Matrix

The Furthest Shadow War involves some politicking among the various gangs of the Furthest underworld. This matrix gives a guide to how the gangs feel about each other. Each cell shows how the row gang feels about the column gang, e.g. Cadoric gang have no real feelings towards the Bratvar, while the Bratvar are publicly friendly to the Cadoric gang (though they are secretly enemies).
