The Scent of Blood and Salt
Ren-Kai is the second-largest port in Ho-Kai-Yo, and the center of trade in the isles. While E-Kyo-Nai has grown wealthier and larger with the support of the Realm, Ren-Kai has always survived by catering to a less pristine clientelle.
Unlike its larger neighbour, Ren-Kai is the capital of scum and villainy in the isles. There is no poison too exotic, no drug too obscure and no place more accepting of diversity in the West: it is an anarchic place, where the law is set by street thugs and the only true safety is to stay well clear.
Since the Realm subjugated the Ho-Kai-Ren two centuries ago and began transporting their supplies into the west through the archipelago, Ren-Kai has been the center of resistance against them. Nearly every Pirate-Lord considers Ren-Kai their home harbor, and all of them draw most of their crew from the bustling city of rafters and driftwood.
