The Borgia Family has been a part of Tyneham as long as anyone can remember. They've always been incredibly wealthy and always been a major force in the development of the city. It's not secret they engage in criminal activity as well, but the city royalty has no power to stop them, and in most cases are paid not to. They've maintained being the most powerful family in Tyneham, but the Medici Brothers Gang has recently been encroaching on their territory more and more.

She was molested as a child by Ukal and resents him. She'd like nothing more than to backstab him at the first opportunity she could pull it off consequence free. Alin is impatient and talkative.

What dwarven family, even a crime family, would be complete without a brewer?
Borgia Family FisheriesEdit
Located on the waterfront, fish are reared here for the consumption of the city. As a result, there isn't much need for hunters in the area, the city largely subsists on meat raised from the ocean.
Borgia Family FoundryEdit
Closer to the heart of the city is the foundry. Here ores from the quarry are brought and smelted into metal for craftspeople at the guildhall to use.
Borgia Family GuildhallEdit
The family also controls the guildhall, even though there aren't too many craftspeople in the family. The guildhall is divided into stalls for craftspeople to rent and sell their wares. Rent is ten gold pieces a month, and there are twelve stalls.

Selling Cursed ItemsEdit
- False weapons
- Incense of Obsession
- Poisonous Cloak
- Necklace of Strangulation
- Needful Doll
- Spendthrift Spectacles
Ukal and Idis are primarily in charge of this endeavor, production takes place between the foundry and the guildhall.
The family are completely willing to make sales on credit. Interest rates are very high though. Runi and Thatelch are in charge of gangs who do rounds. Failure to make payments can result in various penalty including but limited to bodily harm, destruction of property, arson, torture, and death.
Will consider contract killing as long as the target and price are right. This is Iggeg's gig alone, although she often employs some of the items created in the guildhall for the deeds, Necklaces of Strangulation being a favorite.
