Xian, pronounced "SEE-ahn", is the largest city in the Sunset Isles, with more than a hundred thousand men and women living in and nearby it. It and its tributaries dominate the eastern half of the island of Ektau in the far southwest of the island chain. A constant state of low-level warfare takes place against the goblinoids of the western half of the island, and more than a few rival statelets are finding it wise to complicate the lives of its citizenry. As the largest and most cosmopolitan of the cities of the Sunset Isles, it is the place where most young adventurers are liable to seek their fortune.
