Lawenilothehl is an outlaw settlement in the eastern half of the Wilderness. It is home to many dangerous types, most of whom are hostile.
|@||Yergius||The master thief (always in his room)|
|@||Barnabas||Shopkeeper who rips you off|

Just east of the entrance to Lawenilothehl is Barnabas' Black Market, which buys and sells a lot of assorted goods, which can be very useful near the beginning of the game, but his prices are outrageous regardless of the PC's race or class. Members of the Thieves' Guild will receive considerable discounts. The buying price increase/selling price reduction seems to be twice the usual for the head of the thieves' guild, and four times the usual or other customers.
To the north of the Black Market is the home of Yergius the master thief, leader of the Thieves Guild. Yergius will train neutral and chaotic PCs the Pick pockets skill for free. Killing Yergius will make the PC the head of the Thieves' Guild, which will greatly reduce the prices at Barnabas' store.
Skriek the cloaked ratling has a variety of keys for sale, for the right price. Note that all his prices are halved for females.
In the north-west corner of the town lives Kranf Niest, the mad doctor.
Hotzenplotz also offers another quest, if you have taken the "Save Yriggs" quest from Rynt in Terinyo and Jharod is still alive. Then he will ask you to Kill Jharod the healer, who can be found in the Village Dungeon. If you do this, he will arrange for Kranf Niest to teach you the Healing skill.
Once the PC has the Pick pockets skill, Yergius will provide the Thieves' Guild Membership Quest, where you must prove your valor as a thief. Once completed, the PC will be a member of the guild, and can receive either theoretical (improves skill dice) or practical (trains skill directly) training in Climbing, Detect traps, Disarm traps, Listening, Pick locks, and Stealth.
Lawenilothehl is an anagram for "Hole in the wall", an Americanism for a shady place.
