The Abyssal Situation
Red Shroud is the top dog of the town of Broken Reach, the red-haired succubus who has managed to establish Broken Reach as the safest . well, less dangerous . place in the Plains of Infinite Portals. She prevents the Molydei, the tanar’ri press-gang leaders, from coming in to get volunteers. for the Blood War, she discourages other tanar’ri from rampaging around the place, and she makes sure that rowdy citizens take their business outside. In return, she expects everyone to obey her and help keep order while they are within the fortress town . therefore, there isn’t a fixed guards corp. Several of the mercenaries wandering the Reach’s hallways work for Red, but she also has spies everywhere in town and an impressive assortment of contacts and favors to use for getting rid of any specific troublemaker. Like all tanar’ri, she doesn’t know mercy and kills on a whim. Because of her ruthless nature the city is relatively safe and is quiet prosperous and weapons of all kind, even magical ones can be found easily and quickly in the city. The catch is that Red puts a hefty levy on every good sold within her domain and as a result prices are tripled. More than a few brave and daring souls have tried to evade this tax by doing back alley deals but the risk of being caught and subjected to Red’s justice is quiet high and she is not known to have a soft heart.
