-Not much is known about [[settings:​ageron:​toth:​theblackone|The Black One]]. He’s ​spoken about in whispers; all in the city fear him, but none remember having seen himHe is an extremely powerful Hirudo who is currently attempting to ascend to godhoodWhile he doesn’t care about most issues, he will mercilessly oppose anyone who interferes with his planswhich especially includes anybody who attempts to destroy the city. He forces the city’citizens into line with an iron fist. Any adventurers who face him will almost ​surely die in an instant.+Not much is known about [[settings:​ageron:​toth:​theblackone|The Black One]] by the general public. He’s ​worshiped as a god by many of the more nefarious denizens of the island, but doesn'​t tend to make too many public appearancesIt is thought that the Black One defends the islands from assaults from the mainlandOn the few occasions where he does bother to conduct ​his business in the openhowever, it's almost ​always done so to make a flamboyant and violent show of power against his enemies.

-In this region, priests are much less numerous than they are on the mainland. The mages of the region have zero appreciation for the gods, as they don’t like any additional oversight into their more unscrupulous activities. This often means that priests are left death threats or, in some cases, completely disappear. ​+In this region, priests are much less numerous than they are on the mainland. The mages of the region have zero appreciation for the gods, as they don’t like any additional oversight into their more unscrupulous activities. This often means that priests are left death threats or, in some cases, completely disappear. In the past, priests have frequently tried to retake or cleanse the island, but have always failed due to the sheer numbers that the city boasts, combined with the brutal and ingenious tactics of its necromancers.

 +==The Black One== 
 + 
 +[[The Black One]] is currently worshiped as a god by most of the city's citizens who are influential or nefarious. He prefers to keep his worship more subtle, relying more on favors and loyalty than grandiose temples and statues. The Black One has no priests, but instead recruits those he views as talented allies to spread his faith and influence.
  
 ==Ra and Tor== ==Ra and Tor==
  
-At the current moment, Ra’ites and Tor’ites have enough forces to avoid being overrun, but the sheer number of local mages is too much for them to claim the city for their own. While none of the families may currently challenge the priests, it’s only a matter of time before the ghoul-callers come knocking on the temple doors with hordes of undead.+At the current moment, Ra’ites and Tor’ites have enough forces to hold a small presence on the island, but the sheer number of local mages is too much for them to claim the city for their own. While none of the families may currently challenge the priests, it’s only a matter of time before the ghoul-callers come knocking on the temple doors with hordes of undead.

-If there were any location of Jaern in which the worship of Rudri was tolerated, Koth would be it. Rudri, being a god of chaos and darkness, thrives off of the behaviors of the island’s inhabitants,​ and loves how everybody is backstabbing and preying off of each other.+If there were any location of Jaern in which the worship of Rudri was tolerated, Koth would be it. Rudri, being a god of chaos and darkness, thrives off of the behaviors of the island’s inhabitants,​ and loves how everybody is backstabbing and preying off of each other. Hirudos are common in Toth.

Additionally,​ the oligarchy dislikes how Isis disrupts their supply of corpses to resurrect, and intentionally sabotage her priests.

-Taurus is a relatively well-received god on the island, especially among the oligarchy. The families tend to be pretty secretive, with a high preference towards subterfuge, and are always hoarding knowledge of their dark magics. As such, Taurus reaps pretty high informational profits from the island, as everybody is hoarding secrets from each other.+Taurus is a relatively well-received god on the island, especially among intellectuals and members of the oligarchy.

-This strange elf is, by all accounts, completely insane. He has the body of an elf, believes he's an orc, and speaks with a dwarven accent. Even more strange is how this fully blooded elf has an exceptional WIL, +4 Grapple Mod, and mental stubbornness to go with his +4 Linear Mod, Exceptional PER, enhanced vision, enhanced hearing, and distance judgment. (Basically, he has all of the physical abilities of an elf, but has the mental attributes of an orc.) Typically, this character is seen wearing haphazardly applied makeup, visual prosthesis, and "​orcish"​ costume choices to disguise himself as an orc. This character is a professional ​butcher, and can buy nomadic incants ​at base cost.+This strange elf is, by all accounts, completely insane.

 This bar is the more "rough and tumble"​ locale, and is the preferred drinking spot of mercenaries and adventurers;​ it's located right by the city's main gate.

-The Dead Man's Inn is one of the more upscale bars of the region, where most of the powerful necromancers in the city go to drink.
