The World of Kinin
The coastal city of Calio is ruled over by a fat and despotic human man by the name of Caliph Besh Harrakat. He surrounds himself with wealth while the people of the city live in abject poverty.
The Crimson Guard are a fanatical group of warriors who serve their Caliph, and will use any and all means to maintain his power. They do not like adventurers, as they are not under the sway of their Calilph and often bring wealth and power to the city that is also not under his control.
For those that live beneath the Caliph, there are those that suffer and work and those that profit from that suffering. The people cannot leave, for there is no where to go. At least here there is trade and fishing to offer a chance to make enough money to live.
Be wary coming to this place, for it is the home of darkness.
