A maze of stone and stone walls, the Alley of Dangerous Angles is a charred area filled with rubbish heaps and empty containers, and the occasional small hut made of wood or wicker or other simple materials.

Rival gangs, the Darkalley Shivs and Razor Angels, fight for dominance in the alley. A decaying cathedral can be found on the east side. The area is in the direct center of the Hive, but can only be accessed from the southwest Marketplace Area, and the northeast Mortuary Area.

History Edit

This area was once burnt down by a pyromaniac mage named Ignus. Many inhabitants died as a result. He was caught and punished by surviving hedge-mages – common folk knowledgeable in the Art – so that his body would serve as a conduit to the Plane of Elemental Fire. Much to their surprise, Ignus continued to burn, alive but semi-comatose. He eventually became the mascot of the Smoldering Corpse Bar.

Gangs Edit

The members of two gangs, the Darkalley Shivs (led by a man named Rotten William), and the Razor Angels (led by a woman named Krystall), will continue to spawn here and attack until their leaders are killed. Members of each gang will attack members of the other if that is the closest target. They will drop loot if they kill each other, but XP is only gained if a party member deals the killing blow.

When the party first enters the area, Darkalley Shivs will ask for a 10 copper toll. The Nameless One can either pay up, or kill them.
