Thesk sits on the northeast shore of the Sea of Fallen Stars. Nicknamed the Gateway to the East, Thesk is where the fabled Golden Way trade road begins. From Telflamm to Mulsantir, this road is filled with caravans carrying all sorts of goods and people from Kara-Tur. Theskians are tolerant and imperturbable people. Exotic persons and diverse customs are normal where east meets west. In light of the Rashemi suspicion of foreigners, Thesk seems a welcoming place to settle. It even boasts a few civilized orcs, remnants of war against the Tuigan Horde.

Our adventure starts in the city of Phsant, where an underground gang war rages on between Yakuza from the east and the Shadowmasters thieves guild from the west.

Phsant is an underworld battleground, with the Black Dragon clan yakuza on top most of the time. These gangs realize that they exist only because they maintain a low profile and don’t overtly harm trade, keeping the citizens from forcing the authorities to crack down.
