Humans in the Bayou and Gremlins in human areas

9 posts in this topic

I just bought and read the hand that feeds penny dreadful and want to run it, my group is composed of humans, how's the treatment of humans in the bayou? are there any humans? are Gremlins hostile or friendly? In a less important question, are there gremlins in the north hills and malifaux city?

 

thanks in advance

There are probably a fair amount of humans in the Bayou; especially in the town of Edgepoint (from the TTB "Into the Bayou" book) which is nominally held by the Guild. Explorers, hunters, smugglers... there's a meat distributor in Malifaux who receives and sells Bayou pig in secret (Peregrine's Porcine Products), so he's likely got connections to the Gremlins and men to act as envoys. Through The Breach also has Bayou Born who seem to be human kids kidnapped from the city and raised in the swamps?

Just from the various Malifaux stories, gremlin treatment of humans is going to be as varied as human treatment of humans.  It ranges from peaceful trading, to a particularly nasty tale.  The gremlins do seem, after all, to be imitating people for their own purposes.  Unpredictable, at best, especially if dealing with strangers.

In a place like Malifaux, lots of ways for gremlins to get in to the city without going through the Guild checkpoints.

"Into the Bayou" supplement is well worth having, btw, just for the background material.... 'course, I say that about all of the TtB supplements! :P

I'm about a fortnight away from getting 'Into the Bayou' but wanted to ask: is there any official Guild policy on Gremlins?  For example, does the Guild see them as a menace?  Have they ever authorised a bounty system (eg Scrip for Gremlin ears as proof of kill); are they interested in eradicating or at least making the Gremlins fear the Guild, or do they just leave them alone?

There is a bounty for every gremlin corpse brought in, and there are stories about gremlin attacks in the northern hills as well as on Latigo specifically to get Perdita's hat which will likely make the Guild see them as a threat, if not a small one.

This is very handy information that makes for some interesting decision-making in my campaign.  Do you know how much each Gremlin is worth?
