Skull & Shackles
This shady, lawless settlement changes its overlord more often than many of its pirate residents change their undergarments. The current dominant power in town is Nisia Gbele, the Mwangi captain of the frigate Bloody Cudgel. Visitors to this treacherous settlement can expect gory brawls, lurking cutpurses, and casual murder on a regular basis. The acquisition and sale of cruel and exotic poisons is a thriving market in Vilelock, as well as alchemical substances outlawed or strictly controlled in the more civilized nations of the Inner Sea.
