Shattered Swords of Hyboria
Honor Among Thieves
Men, civilized men, say there is no honor among thieves. This is not so. Although they will slit a throat for a copper coin or kidnap a Brythunian noblewoman and turn her into a harem slave, thieves have a set of laws that they live by with a strange, bewildering sense of roguish nobility.
