The docks of Chiaroscuro are famous throughout Creation for the cargoes brought to the city and the tax haggling that ensues at them.

Jewel of the South. Diamond in the rough. Lotus in the garbage. These and many more words inadequately describe Chiaroscuro’s awe inspiring nature as the greatest and largest city in the South. Currently ruled by the semi-nomadic Delzahn Horde, Chiaroscuro is a Realm Satrapy and Guild protectorate, but independent of both of these powers in everything, but name.

For more information on Chiaroscuro, please see chapter two of The Compass of Terrestrial Directions IV: The South.
