Pashow is the smallest of the Thuvian cities, largely due to the extremely limited resources of the region. The people of Pashow are devoted to the god Nethys, and in the past, their talents with arcane magic helped them survive in the harsh land. Pashow is also one of the most troubled of the city-states. The young Emir Guldis lost the two most recent shipments of elixir, costing his city hundreds of thousands of gold pieces. In both cases, the courier was to use a scroll to teleport himself and the precious potions to Pashow. This practice has always been forbidden in the past, precisely because teleportation often goes astray. Pashow’s sages continue to seek out where they went. Current theories either blame some nameless malevolent force intentionally misdirecting and slaughtering the couriers or else a natural phenomenon. Guldis continues to search for adventurers willing to replicate the accident and bring an end to the threat. His recent failures have shaken the confidence of his people, and there is a group of agitators who seek to put Ziralia — the eldest daughter of Prince Zinlo of Aspenthar — on Pashow’s throne.
