Centric: Alain Uskinglass
The PC’s arrive at the outskirts of the city Riinar. Raven separates himself from the group to look for his brother. The others join up with a shady character, who in exchange for pieces of gold and pints of ale, gives them the lay of the land.
The sin-city is split up into four quarters, each quarter run by a different family. In the East quarter, Bishop owns the distilleries and distributes ales and wines for the city. Although the Bishops are the weakest of the four, it’s day to day operations are run by Robert Parks.
In the South, Carlos runs distribution and manufacture of exotic materials which allows people to “get into touch with the divine within themselves”. Second strongest of the families, Carlos pretty much runs the things himself but uses tough guy Umberto to enforce his law.
In the West, prositution is situated in the old temple of Lilith. It is run by Martin Sweet, who is a lecherous man and a coward. His empire is pretty much run by tough guy Varick.
In the North, Tupalov runs a protection ring, arming his troops with rods, which have the ability to fire lightbolts at people. His trusted Torrent handles the day to day operation.
Smack in the middle is the Freezone, a dangerous place where no man dares to go. Rumours of cannibalsism, sexual devience and worse are common.
The PC’s head to the Church of Lilith and discover that it is now a whorehouse. There is nothing remaining of the old religion there but people are startled by the appearance of Alain, believing him to be Tupalov’s missing son. They hear rumours about a uprising in the city.
Heading to Tupalov, they learn that Tupalov’s wife has been transmutated to stone by “an ancient being” but Tupalovs now that Alain is not his son.
Departing, the group decides to helðp the resistance they learned about and use their means to set up a meeting with their leaders, learning them to be Torrent and Parks.
Flashbacks Alain, at the age of ten, encounters a drunk while clearing the tables at the Inn. The drunk is kind and benevolent, and treats Alain with respect. Never the less, he flirts with Alain’s mother and spends the night with her, like so many before him and after.
Alain has occuring encounter with this kind man.
