Odyssey of the Almost People
This nation is famous for its Arena, where warriors from all around battle it out for the enjoyment of Kalimdra’s citizens. Though ruled by the Holy Emperor, the empire has fallen into such disrepair that the mafia has corrupted most of the government and controls most of the power. They run the Arena and few can oppose their whims.
Goldgut Silverlips took a tip from Cable Cauthon, who was a bookie for the Kalimdran Mafia. Goldgut ended up losing all his money in a rigged bet, as a last ditch attempt to recover his family’s fortune. Realizing what horrible things were going on in the Arena, Cable teamed up with Goldgut to help bring them down. Goldgut got his revenge and they assassinated the mafia’s boss, but had to skip town once the rest of them found out about it. With the help of their halfling friend Benson Pound, they fled into the nearby nation of Vintas.
