A dangerous and vile city placed atop a hollowed out volcano, long dormant. The city is surrounded by fertile soil, and is cultivated by slaves growing great wealth of fruits and nuts. The picturesque surrounding only masks the horrors of the city itself. Run by a powerful wizard guild (some say led by an ancient evil thousands of years old) who controls the slave trade in town via their monopoly on the production of the magical Goh’cha that keep slaves in check.
Recently, evil priests have been forcing slaves to work even in undeath. They have discovered a Goh’cha like device to control large numbers of undead and turn them to physical labor. There have been mass slave killings, by masters who already have nearly complete control over their slaves. Some masters simply want slaves who can work longer and harder… and they just don’t care about the stench.
