The FATE of Guilfort
A gang of young thugs from Tilith.
Scams and Cheats
The scarlet letter (glamour)
Find a rich looking couple that looks unhappy together. Make a minor illusion for the wife that the husband has lipstick on his neck (or some such suggestion). If possible, try to subtly draw her attention to it. During whatever conflict ensues, pick the purse.
Bait and Switch
Purchase a nice handbag. Find a lady with a similar hand bag. Find a reason for her to place her hand bag down for a second, and swap bags.
Steal two items, one very expensive and one not so expensive. Place the very expensive one on the “surprised duck” and then accuse him of stealing in front of the shopkeeper. After congratulations, and possible reward, sneak off with the lesser valued item.
