Thieves' Guild: The Fence

In "Haven's" game world, as mostly in our world as well, economics has nothing to do with morality. Stolen goods still have value, and the economic system depends not on whether the goods have been acquired lawfully, but whether they are "real" or "fake." The young thief and the buyer of goods both know this, and so the question is, (as the boy crosses his fingers), will the fence pay anything, or throw him out to try again. The outcome may determine whether the guild boss punishes or pays his operative.
