Tensions were high in Limsa Lominsa as a group of armed mobsters took to the streets last Saturday night. Witnesses claim the group was seen lurking below the decks of the aftcastle and overheard discussing a getaway vehicle, before alarms were sounded and the criminals cleared out.
A short time later, an alleged mobster was found lying unconscious on the floor of the Arcanists’ guild. Before she could be apprehended and questioned, however, she slipped out the back door with the help of an accomplice.
The group’s illicit activities came to a head in the Aetheryte Plaza as a standoff between the notorious Lulu “Angel Face” Bubulubu and Spud “The Boss” Poke. While the famed mob boss was backed up by several of his well-known associates, the former was seen taking a hostage in an effort to gain an advantage and escape.
Shots were fired, and at least one serious injury was sustained as Pyha “The Trigger” Dakwhil was caught in the crossfire.
Fortunately the Limsa Police force arrived in time to prevent any casualties, however no arrests were made. The lack of arrests or other legal action, despite the flagrant disregard for the law demonstrated by the gangsters, has led to allegations of corruption among even the highest ranking officials of Limsa Lominsa.
