    About the adventure

    As the newest crew in town, you and your band of scoundrels must complete heists, survive the ghosts, and dodge the Spirit Wardens as you seek fortunes in this dangerous Industrial City. Do you have what it takes to rise to power in the criminal underworld? Is there anything you won't do to get to the top? You can choose from one of seven pre-generated characters or make one of your one in this One-Shot Learn To Play event.
