Mr Heel wears 4 gold rings (200 gold crescent value each) and has a purse with 58 gold crescents, 43 silver spanners, and 13 copper pieces. He affects a monocle and likes to be regarded as a gentleman, but he is really a vicious criminal with a liking for murder. The other halflings (except Screwjob) are scared of him.
Mr Welt, Lawful Evil male halfling Fighter (AC 8; MV 9”; F3; hp 18; #AT 1; D Short sword +1 to damage due to strength; S 16, I 8, W 6, D 12, C 14, Ch 4; XP 132)
Mr Welt is a tall, bald, and ugly halfling. He is Mr Heel's primary enforcer and enjoys hurting others for any excuse. He wears leather armor and carries 14 gold crescents and 41 copper pieces in a pouch.
Mr Mustache, Lawful Evil male halfling Fighter (AC 8; MV 9”; F2; hp 12; #AT 1; D Short sword; S 11, I 13, W 15, D 12, C 15, Ch 13; XP 71)
Mr Mustache is unusually short and fat, even for a halfling. He has a beautiful handlebar moustache and is Mr Heel's closest thing to a friend. He wears leather armor and has 25 gold crescents, 13 silver spanners, and 23 copper pieces.
They are being served by three halfling thieves acting as waiters.

Each halfling has 3-18 (3d6) silver spanners.
Mr Heel will prefer to talk rather than fight, especially if the party seems strong. If he can come to an understanding with outsiders he will try to get them to eliminate his main competition, a halfling named Screwjob who lives on the Upper Floor of the Magic Shoe House. The halflings on the Ground Floor are loyal to him, at least nominally, and he count on their obedience. Screwjob used to be his chief lieutenant, but he was always restless and wild and he recently broke away, taking with him some of the braver halflings who were willing to risk fighting in return for more food.. Now there is a sort of cold war between the two rivals, with occasional killings when territory is invaded.
When Huvvard gives out food to the halflings, Mr Heel takes it all from the others on the Ground Floor. Mr Heel, Mr Welt, and Mr Moustache are seated at the table. All sorts of cakes, meat dishes, fruits, and desserts are piled on the table. Huvvard usually only gives milk or juice to the halflings, but Mr Heel has set up a still in Room 15W and the halflings here are enjoying homemade liquor.
Behind a curtain, there is Mr Heel's bed. Other furniture includes chairs, tables, and a large wardrobe holding Mr Heel's clothing. A hidden compartment is in the back of the wardrobe (treat as a secret door). Within are five citrines (100 gold crescents each), a silver and ivory tie clasp (130 gold crescents), and a bag of 200 gold crescents.
