The Sczarni are a loosely-affiliated group of Varisian criminal families. They tend toward non-violent crimes, such as confidence schemes, rigged games, fraud, pick-pocketing, and selling items of dubious quality or legality (such as fake magic items, quack medicine, or illegal drugs). They generally don’t target ethnic Varisians.
The Sczarni are mostly responsible for the negative reputation of Varisians in general as untrustworthy swindlers. Most Varisians do not condone Sczarni activity.
