Keepers of Arden
This island city operates outside of the jurisdiction of Arden’s forces. Therefore, they’re famous for their slave trade and black market dealings. The result on the people is atrocious. Often times family members will be kidnapped and sold into slavery. Murder is rampant. There is wishes for an uprising and an appeal to the House of Arden to send troops to help locals overthrow the local government. Government is a term to be used loosely. In actuality it is the heads of four different gangs that just so happen to get along because they help each other profit. Grill heads the slave trade. Hodges is in charge of the Bizarre Bazaar. Trader is responsible for the local taxes. And Dayla is responsible for entertainment. These four managed to create a precarious peace in which they all profit. When there is a large issue that must be faced, these four gather for a council meeting to resolve the issue.
There have always been small uprisings that have quickly been quelled by the four gangs. However, rumors grow of a liberation movement set to take flight.
