The fabled city of coin and trade. It is basically two cities straddling the narrow mouth of a an incredibly vast bay. However, the two cities are connected by hundreds of thousands of boats, mobile decks and wharfs. This basically makes the three cities (the third being the floating city between the two), into one large and bustling city.
Kassion is ruled by money; specifically the twenty-one guilds. Members of each guild struggle for power withing their guild, while each guild tries to seize as much power from the other guilds. If should be noted that for the last five centuries one of the three most powerful guilds is the guild of the Open Hand, a guild of both thieves and beggars.
Kassion might seem like a wondrous place, filled with riches, exotic foods and luxuries. It is also a melting pot of cultures, races, and other religious views. It has the most wealthy individuals in the world, and is filled with artist of all sorts.
Unfortunately for every opulent manor, there is a garbage strewn alley. For every successful merchant there is are a dozen beggars and thieves. Each story of success is matched by dozens of youths who made their way to Kassion and lost what little start up money they had.
The simple labourers and middle class perhaps have it the best. They are not important enough to be the target of the rich and powerful, and they are prosperous enough to have food and shelter.
