  • The Lady’s Ward

    Going counterclockwise around the ring of [[Sigil]], the next stop is The Lady’s Ward (and yes, the locals can hear you capitalize all three of those words). [[The Lady of Pain]] doesn’t live here, but rich citizens and most of [[Sigil | Sigil’s]] temples …

  • Vocar the Disobedient

    This weathered old human male claims that he was once an exarch of [[Vecna]], and both his empty eye socket and the stump of his left arm lend credence to his words. If one believes that claim, though, one is forced to consider seriously that his other …

  • Sigil

    Some call Sigil the City of Secrets, because everything that can be known is known somewhere in its twisting streets. Some call it the Cage, because it’s hard to get to and hard to leave. Mostly it’s called the City of Doors, thanks to the portals that …
