A Measure of Peace
Rich in metals, stone, and precious gems, Gem is without a doubt the richest city in the South. However, much of that wealth is spent protecting itself from the predations of bandits, Fair Folk, the dead, and other forces within and without. Ruled by its hereditary Despot, Gem offers opportunities for all who seek to gain them, but only if they are willing to pay the price to succeed in such an environment.
For more information on Gem, please see chapter five of The Compass of Terrestrial Directions Vol. IV: The South.
