Quest for Starfire
The port resting south of Asalia is called both “Lady’s Love” and “Bahamut’s Grace” depending upon who you ask. Ages ago it was originally the residence of aquatic elves who practiced a very particular form of magic concerned with probabilities and luck. Through the generations the magic warped the area into a place where fortunes, both good and bad, are pushed to their extremes in the area.
Recognizing the dangers of such an aberration the aquatic elves left the area. It did not take long for groups of greedy humans and half orcs to realize the potential wealth to be made by such a place. The region took on a deep propensity towards gambling, many casinos and other such “recreational” institutions were opened, and the port of “Lady’s Love” was born.
A particularly fanatical cult of Bahamut has in the past few years taken it upon themselves to cleanse “Lady’s Love” of its vices. Moving into the area religious fanatics, some well-meaning good people, and all the sell swords this brand of Bahamut worship could purchase, have occupied the city and driven out the casinos, brothels and other places that could be connected to vice. Many of the former gangsters have moved their casinos onto gigantic barges just off the shore of “Lady’s Love”, newly renamed “Bahamut’s Grace” by the conquerors, as a symbol of defiance. While it is certainly more difficult to gamble as it once was, those who are truly interested can find the means to reach the pleasure barges the rulers of “Bahamut’s Grace” seek to blockade.
Interestingly enough the half-orc slayer “Rendar” has joined the crusade to purge “Lady’s Love”. He is conflicted over whether such a quest has been motivated by a true devotion to Bahamut or a lower urge to simply control and rule others however.
