Council of Thieves- Consho
—From “Cheliax: Empire of Devils”, by Paizo Publishing:
Every Chelaxian knows Westcrown’s terrible history. Many have parents or grandparents who lived in the city the day Aroden was to come and claim his crown—and instead witnessed an empire’s collapse. When the diabolic new rulers of Cheliax moved the capital city, they left behind ruin and despair. Westcrown crumbles under the weight of shattered dreams and thwarted aspirations. Yet even after years of emigration, it remains the largest city in Cheliax and one of the largest in Avistan. Westcrown’s location ensures its place as a major commercial trade hub, an important military post, and a major port on the western Inner Sea. Boats laden with food or slaves anchor at the floating marinas and ferry their goods to the city’s many markets. Trade exports from Westcrown include sea salt, seafood, sun pearls, timber, sailcloth, textiles, wool, wine, olives, herbs, unique crimson pottery, and quality ships. The city’s many religious sites continue to draw the pious, the curious, and the devious. The ruins of the northern city draw interest among those looking for illegal goods or rare treasures from the dangerous rubble. But once the sun sets, only the foolish walk out of doors in Westcrown, for the shadow beasts prowl every darkened lane and waterway.
