Visitors to Rahadoum often arrive via ship at Azir
(known by many as “Port Godless”) to trade for the
country’s fine cloth, exotic produce, and priceless
gemstones. Yet despite the lure of trade, visits to Rahadoum
are strictly regulated, for the so-called “Kingdom of Man”
tolerates no devotion to the divine within its borders.
Foreigners must submit to a thorough search by the Pure
Legion, a group of trained soldiers who watch for signs
of faith in the gods. The black markets of Rahadoum do
a brisk business selling and buying divine magical items, but such activities are risky. Possession of contraband (such as holy texts or symbols) results in heavy fines and potential exile, while preaching religious doctrine earns imprisonment or worse.
Tthe pirates of the Shackles are a continual burden on Rahadoum’s ports. The Rahadoumi navy has lost many good ships chasing pirates into the Eye of Abendego, and as a result is willing to pay well for a navigator who can provide good charts or, better yet, lead Rahadoumi ships on a raid around the murderous hurricane.
