The Adventurers' Guild
Ishar is a massive, sprawling city of mud brick and limestone. The streets bustle with all manner of beings tanned darkly from the relentless desert sun. Ishar is located in the South Central part of the world and abuts the Shimmering Sea. It is mostly within an arid climate, so water is scarce and the wilderness is foreboding to poorly prepared travelers. Ishar is the center of much trade, having allied itself with the Northern States across the ocean. As such, it is a bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis. All sorts of races intermingle, some more amicably than others.
Traditionally, the main attractions to tourists visiting Ishar were its Temple district and the Coliseum. The Temple district is the largest and most diverse gathering of holy buildings in the world. Temples have been erected to nearly every god, so finding a place to worship is never an issue. One of the largest temples is the Azure Temple, which is now inhabited by the Priestesses of Patior.
The Coliseum is a massive piece of architecture. Dedicated to the many gods worshiped in the city’s Temple district, it was the site of bloody gladiatorial contests, sacrifices, and even benign forms of entertainment, like theatre. Since the Rebellion in Ishar, efforts to demolish the Coliseum have begun.
