The Muckruckers is a wholly volunteer force that maintain order in the Puddles district of Absalom. It is given use of the Stilt House, a city-owned building, to serve as headquarters, and they receive no aid from the Grand Council beyond their warrants of authority. The Muckruckers were formed as a "temporary" measure after the earthquake, and have never been replaced. Officially they are named the Muddied Center Reserve Civilian Corps. For the first years of their existence they did a fair job, but as the rebuilding of Puddles was being delayed, the hardest-working families and the best Muckruckers left the flooded district. Now, the Muckruckers is as much a district guard as a thieves' guild.
