The largest of the free cities of the south, Fatima embodies many of the negative aspects to those independent city-states. Under the totalitarian rule of a circle of powerful mages, the city has a strict ban on all magic that is not licensed by those in power. Meanwhile, crime and corruption runs deep within the community. Slavery and other evils are freely allowed in Fatima, and the common folk usually find themselves forced to trade their liberties for the “protection” offered by their mage overlords.
