The City of Aris
Aris is situated on the eastern side of the continent, on the southern edge of the planet’s tropical zone. It is a mid sized city whose success is attributed to its ideal position along the north-south trade route. Fourty two years before the campaign begins, Aris, which was a small kingdom at the time, was conquered by
the nation of Dunder.
Their defeat was so swift and complete that the king of Dunder decided to continue his conquest. Instead of leaving a garrison, the king left a magistrate with a small guard and instructed him to hire willing towns people to keep the peace. At first, the magistrate had no volunteers and decided to put bounties for the capture of wanted individuals and before long people began to take on the title of bounty hunter.
Four years later, Dunder’s conquest lost steam and the bounty system was abolished. A city guard was established in its place, but the colorful characters and their exciting adventures lived on in the memories of the people of Aris.
