Almund is a thriving township with a dark side. With houses made from the wooden bodies of decommissioned ships, there are many opportunities here, coupled with many dangers.

In such an environment as Almund, things frequently go missing; people too. And the circumstance surrounding such disappearances often bring hesitance to seek assistance from formal law enforcement personnel. So where is a citizen to go when they can not go to the guard?
Karel Hyde is your man. He runs this "odds and ends" shop, which does
provide him a meager living. But the service this shop truly
provides is as the front for the tracking down of these missing articles. Once commissioned, Hyde will either get them back, obtain their nel's worth as compensation, provide evidence of sufficient punishment administered to the offender, or a detailed explanation as to why he was unable to provide any or all of the previously mentioned results.
So how does one find 'Hyde and Seek'?
Even in far-off Viden there's a man who knows of 'Hyde and Seek'. While speaking to a woman who'd lost her husband, and had exhausted all the resources in Scalvoris Town thus far, the old gent asked her, "Did you try Almund miss?"
Seeing her confused look, he availed himself of the complimentary pencils and paper provided by the great library in Viden and scratched out a crude map of Almund.
"Okay, this here's the waterfront,"
he began. "This here's where the docks end, and plain boardwalk and beach take over. Dont' take more'n ten steps and then look int' town. There's an alley goin' up that leads to shops you can only get to this way. There ain't no walkway down from above. When you run outta steps, you'll have gone one door too far on the left. The sign over the door you want will read 'Hyde and Seek".
