To say Dramek is a wild place would be an understatement. Once a shining star in the west, it’s now ruled by a careless and greedy Dwarf named Barendd Holderhek. Barendd’s only concern is to sit in his keep, count coins, polish gems, and figure out ways to acquire more. His town guard can range from lazy and uncaring to blatantly murderous. The only thing that keeps the town from completely falling apart are the incredibly rich gem mines underneath it. The Dwarven ran mining companies basically have their own little armies and sections of the city that they control. There is constant fighting between them. The conflicts range from bar brawls to high profile assassinations. This makes the city almost a war zone at times. With Holderhek doing little or nothing to stop it so long as he gets to tax the hell out of the companies. Some wonder if he could in fact do anything at all if maybe a pair of the companies could put aside their difference and join together. The city’s checks and balances system is therefore the violence. And still many people come to this city… Looking to strike it rich in the mines or to escape the law. Crime runs rampant here with little care from those in power. An eye for an eye and survival of the fittest are the only laws.
