Khardoun is a port city on the claw of the dragon continent. It is home to a diverse mix of kindreds. It is a juncture of land and sea trade routes and generally a prosperous town.
City government is by the self elected "Council of Seven" comprising the top seven succesful merchants. As the membership is self-appointed it is in constant flux as fortunes rise and fall. It is also not unknown for there to be more than one council opperating simultaneously, some times with overlapping membership.

Current events of note include:
An increase in the pilfering of gems, jewelry, scrolls and other small items of value. Most items are small enough to be carried comfortably in one hand, and there are no signs of break in.
A coastal galley with blood red sails is being used by a crew of corsairs to harras merchant ships. Items from the cargoes of these ships are turing up for sale in the markets, but the galley is never seen to make port. Despite frequent searches of the coves and beaches the anchorage of the corsairs has not been found, nor has their means of bringing the stolen cargoes into the city.
Rats have been increasing in numbers and boldness. It is feared that outbreaks of disease will soon follow.
The slogan "Give Me Back My Hat" has been appearing on walls and among graffiti.
