At a perfumed arcade known as the Emporium, Par-Chieftan Lanod Neff rubs shoulders with common laborers awaiting an appointment in the Veiled Corridor. In an adjoining antechamber, snakes and exotic dancers gyrate to a sonorous weave of cymbals and seductive pipes. A floor below, a gaggle of grasping miners presses against the windowed door of a darkened cell, impatient for a glimpse of a two-headed calf.

Out in the street, a gang of rowdies screams obscenities at a crumpled halfling, kicking it as if scrambling for a ball. Their drunken laughter echoes off shuttered windows and bolted doors. In a cavernous but unadorned temple across the shadowy square, filthy men with nothing to lose shout hymns to The Defender, clutching to their idealism and principles like cornered animals. Their wild-eyed chief minister smiles as he draws a cat-o-nine-tails across his bare back, awash in their adulation and the spirit of his god.

But it’s just another night in Koshepa.

Koshepa is a city in the Nation of Azani, Ninovan. It is a small city that until recently was only known as a dirty, lawless backwater mining community tucked into the mouth of Garrison Gorge on the Nyavu Table. The town was difficult to access in it’s location between the mountain ranges and was only visited by wayward laborers and prisoners sent to work labor in the mines to pay off debts to society.

Since the sundering and the opening of The Rift, however the town has become more popular as it sits directly on the side of the rift where the mighty Chu’a River pours over the side. It has since become a place of curiosity as it provides visitors a chance to view (or even explore) the rift first-hand. The Koshep Inn, once a brothel, has been turned around into a resort-like hotel perched on the rim of the rift. Delaron Neff, a powerful wizard, has recently opened the Academy Arcane as a place to train users in arcane magic and to study the recently uncovered mysteries held deep within the earth.
