Traditionally there were 3 until about CY 9024, when a new faction appeared in the northeast – an oft ignored location. It is rumored that the four manage an ancient tradition of fighting pits out of several locations. The leader of the four organizations consider themselves a type of underground nobility – to be accorded a title and deferment in accordance with it, though it is not familial or passed on by blood in any way.

A time of violence and the “streets of Rumein ran red”. A section of Rumein itself collapsed – caused by a tunneling war between two of the brotherhoods. The collapse attributed to gang warfare caused a crackdown, in which The Dash-Flashers were driven out of the capital. At the end of this time the four fighting pits were consolidated into one. The Three Fingers pit, run by a new leader named of the Midnight Wheels named Carrad. The Dash-Flashers were cut out of the new fighting pit in Rumein in addition to be run out of the city. Since then, a string of Gwinn friendly (in smuggling) gang leaders has run the pits.
