Shilavahr is a shadow, a mantle that is passed around in the shadows, changing throughout the generations. It refers to the puppetmaster of the underground trade ring that makes the unavailable available, the inaccessible accessible. The Stars are agents of this unseen master, and operate the fences and back-alley deals that go unnoticed by the authorities. Weapons, poisons, artefacts of antiquity, specimens, services, anything that can have a price attached to it, can be sourced and provided by the Stars. Nothing is gained without equivalent exchange, and while coin is the most common currency, the Stars will also exchange product for services or favours.
The Stars have no fixed address, but their influence can be seen at any of the multitude of stalls, bazaars and emporiums within Avesta and other cities, only to be gone the following day.
