Nitharos II.5: The longest short rest ever
That-Place-We-Liked is a rogue community, home to vigilantes, criminals, bounty hunters and scoundrels. It is “the centre point of the world” and although it is in the lands of New Epsilon, it is tied to none of the factions and welcomes everyone. Although the general visitors and locals are of the unruly sort, the town features a strong community and law system, based on the chaotic system known as “Order in the Chaos”
As the town is factionless, its people come from all parts of the world seeking jobs, spesificly jobs oriented around espionage, sabotage and assassination, in or against opposing factions. This drives most of the towns profit, although much of its profit also comes from Vic’s.
Order in the Chaos
The law is upheld by a bounty system, where any crime committed within the town boundaries may receive a bounty to be collected by any citizen. For (rare) extreme cases, law is upheld by the Kningtar family.
A long time ago the town was known as Reddansyr, a small trade town between Westgate and Starmantle. Following the destruction of Starmantle by the Eclypse member known as The Purple Drake, a mysterious benefactor purchased most of the property of the town, and founded the bar she called “Vic’s”. The popularity of Vic’s caused the town to grow in popularity and its free spirited nature protected the town from the growth of the five factions of war. Due to Vic’s being the main attraction, the bar owners quickly became the leadership of the town.
In the later years, various bounty hunter guilds have appeared to promote a competitive side to the jobs posted..
- The Drunken Dragon. A guild lead by a copper dragon, Karl.
- The Three Horns. A guild lead by two tieflings and a half demon, Mila, Talo and Karakirr
- Acquisitions Inc. Exploration and Adventuring of the highest calibre, also package delivery.
- The Scouts. A guild of freelance scouts, never take their own jobs, but hire themselves to others. Because of this, there is no particular leadership.
- The Greybloods. A undead and necromancy oriented guild. Unknown leader.
- Grassbeard Greenskins. An orc druid and shaman guild. To’rukk Nosebeard is the leader.
- M.C.E. Corp. A high industry and technology guild. Owned by Marv Callus Escher.
The Gay Elf. Shut down by Kningtar Security due to suspicious activity.

Vic’s: The Only Bar
The benefactor who founded the bar did so under the ownership of a long lost friend. There is a magical safe in one of its rooms said to only open to the bar’s true owner, until such a time as that owner returns, “Vic’s” is managed by the charismatic young woman called Victoria Priapurl Celakasiron aka. Pria.
