Assassin’s Crown

A Thrilling Murder Mystery

Welcome to Ioatha

A city ruled by 5 monarchs(4 monarchs and a president, technically). Each of them rule over portions of the city’s infrastructure. Agriculture, Policing, The Church, The Criminal Underworld, and the Banks.

Ancient and powerful is the walled city of Ioatha. Positioned at the junction of two rivers, it lies upstream from the major river that runs to the south. This geographic location has allowed it to trade as needed, but also remain on the periphery of major trade-routes. The City of Kings is a strong, if relatively isolated city-state.

Great are it’s walls, erected long ago to combat the growing wilds around it. It is this seclusion that has allowed the city to grow with relatively little outside influence.
