Bones of the Dead Eleven
Underworld of Zoa
Stolen goods from around the world are likely to end up in Zoa, where they might have changed hands a dozen times. Smuggling is an activity often tried but rarely successful in Zoa. The punishment for selling smuggled goods is confiscation of the property and fines of up to three times its value on the supposition that the seller has bought smuggled items before. The steep punishment has put merchants out of business more than once.
Because foreigners are commonplace in the city, Zoa is an ideal place to hide from unwanted attention. Refugees from across Kalamar and Svimohzia flock to the city to hide among its everchanging masses. They might be hiding from assassins or fleeing religious persecution, or they might be exiles from their native lands.
