Wanted Thieves of Waterdeep
Wanted: Artanial the Cutpurse
Reward: 150 gold pieces
Let it be known that the right & true Lords of Waterdeep and their servants the Magistrates of Waterdeep have declared that Artanial the Cutpurse, lately of the South Ward, is hereby remanded for seizure and arrest within the city of Waterdeep.
Let all law-abiding citizens remain on the watch for Artanial, who is described as moustachioed, with a head of long hair the color of chestnuts. He is wanted for many incidences of theft of personages without their awareness, per his moniker.
He is also wanted for evasion of the Watch and Guard, for damage to personal properties in his get-away attempts and for the infliction of injury to members of the Watch and private citizens giving pursuit through the use of caltrops and assorted obstacles.
Let those who would pursue him know that he is fast and mobile, moving as quickly up walls as others do move across streets. He does not offer violence, but does leave inhibitions to chase in his wake, and has led more than one thief-taker into traps he has set up previous.
Wanted: Gilden Shipsbane
Reward: 50 gold pieces + 250 gold pieces (by the Master Mariners' Guild of Waterdeep)
Let it be known that the right & true Lords of Waterdeep and their servants the Magistrates of Waterdeep have declared that the mountebank called Gilden "Shipsbane" is hereby remanded for seizure and arrest within the city of Waterdeep.
Let all law-abiding citizens remain on the watch for Gilden and members of his gang, the Waterspiders, for theft of cargos from ships anchored in the Waterdeep harbor. Gilden organizes, trains and leads his band of con artists and burglars, and are wanted for the theft of hundreds of gold pieces worth of goods from ships whose goods they gained access to through a combination of deceit and burglary.
Let those who would pursue Gilden know that he is cunning and often remains aloof from the execution of his schemes, although he remains in close proximity. Members of the Waterspiders are known for their quick get-aways through the water, and there are a few magicians of minor power among their number.
Wanted: The Thief of Crowns
Reward: 300 gold pieces + Myriad Private Rewards Offered
Let it be known that the right & true Lords of Waterdeep and their servants the Magistrates of Waterdeep have declared that the person whose name is not known, but is called the Thief of Crowns, is hereby remanded for seizure and arrest within the city of Waterdeep.
He is wanted for burglary first and foremost of ambassadors and important political visitors from other realms to Waterdeep. He favors these targets, infiltrating their residences and making away with the whole of their precious belongings, leaving behind him a paper crown of folded paper as his marker. He is also wanted for murder, in particular the garotting of guards set to watch over those noble guests, and others who may have discovered him at work.
Let those who pursue him know that no one has seen his face, though his victims (interviewed by clerical magics) claim that he goes cloaked and masked, and is a thin man or half-elf of below-average height. He dresses in black and leather buckskins, with tall boots that have knives tucked into them.
Let it be known that not only does the Lords' Court offer this reward, but there are also myriad rewards from those against whom the Thief of Crowns has trespassed against. These are in the possession of the Watch's accountancy.
