Thresh Street Runners is

Runner

a Dishonored based RP campaign that I am currently working on/running with the Savage Worlds system.

The basic premise is that the players are investigators working for Magistrate Mattius Cathmore, magistrate for the Rudshore District and founder of the Runners. Concerned by the rising tide of crime that was plaguing the city, Magistrate Mattius Cathmore formed a small group charged with serving writs, detective work and arresting offenders. The group was based out of his office in Rudshore's Thresh Street and soon earned the name of the Thresh Street Runners, they would later be recognized (but not well liked) by the City Watch. The Runners were given the thankless task of investigating the most serious and unsolvable crimes, typically the murder of significantly important citizens or government officials, serious arson or singularly large acts of theft or destruction. For every case the Runners solve, ten more arise and never reach resolution.

Also of note is that the campaign is set before the Rat Plague, so Rudshore has flooded yet and Hiram Burrows has only started his schemes. The main focus is Dunwall but the players will head into the countryside beyond the city and eventually to the far corners of the Isles.
