Law and Order
There exists in Ilayson no City Watch or similar centralised organisation of law enforcement. The Church has its own soldiers; the great families have small, private martial forces at their disposal; the guilds employ a variety of people to act as guards, enforcers etc. The absence of an impartial, codified legal system means that unaffiliated individuals are very isolated and liable to be subject to any number of crimes and misdemeanours. Equally, such individuals will find themselves without support in the event they transgress against an affiliated individual or group.
Situation: The PCs are newly arrived in Ilayson. They must find accommodation and develop some affiliations, quickly. Some residents of Ilayson are not shy about preying on unaffiliated new arrivals in the city.
