Riddleport

This city is a solution for those who find
law of any sort oppressive, and serves as a safe harbour for
mercenaries, thieves, bandits, and pirates of all cuts. Tales of
bandits ruling the streets, of muggings and murder taking
place in full light of day, and of riots and anarchy are popular
among the nobles of Korvosa, yet there is little truth to these tales, for the Overlords of Riddleport are undeniably harsh in punishing those who would attempt to disrupt civic function. While Riddleport is not a place for the timid, it draws a surprising number of scholars and intellectuals, for the city of Riddleport is host to one of the most intriguing and well-preserved Thassilonian monuments—the cryptic Cyphergate, a ring of stone that arches gracefully over the entrance to the city’s harbour. The Cyphergate has long intrigued wizards, sages, and their like, enough so that these stereotypically meek folk have become a strong and tempering force in Riddleport’s society.
