Notable & Interesting Places
1. The Wayfarer's Society Chapter house.
Image
This large building on the western slope of the hill that the city's keep crowns, is on the edge of the cliffs and has a nice unobstructed view of the ocean. The ground floor has a tavern for adventurers and patrons can socialize. There are meeting rooms for conducting business in private and the Society Council has a few offices and holds their meetings on the second floor. The Council consists of five members, headed by the Chairman Maylor Jacobson.

2. Theissia's Arena.
Image
This small coliseum is made of stone and wood, able to seat almost 1000 spectators for contests of skill at arms and more bloodthirsty events. There are sanctioned training houses, part of the Gladiator's Guild, that supply warriors for the arena. They have barracks, training rooms, cages and pre-staging rooms underneath the arena. These events shown are often not to the death and healers are in attendance to keep the combatants from bleeding out, but accidents can happen. There is even a Tiefling running a company that hires mercenaries to capture and bring back monsters for special events, allowing foolish amateurs a chance at gaining fame in the arena. The plaza around the main entrance features several stalls selling trinkets, food and drink, busiest right before and after the scheduled events. During the off-times, the grand stands are open without admission charges and people have used it as a place for socializing. Children often come and play, hoping to catch sight of some gladiators conducting a practice session inside the arena.

3. The Public Baths.
Image
A pleasant and relaxing spa, offering segregated pools and baths for cleaning and socializing. It is a popular meeting place for the city's elite and nobles, requiring expensive membership for the exclusive, opulent sections and services. There is also a garden and a gymnasium area for exercise and physical contests. There is a large pool for the common folk only requiring a silver coin for entry to soak in their loincloths. Every once in a while, some noble or the city rulers will pay to open the entire bath for the public to partake for a day, hoping to curry favor from the masses.

4. Theissia's Amphitheater.
Image
There is some culture in the seaport city; the Actor's Guild sponsors plays, operas, and even comedian performances. There is only seating for about 150 spectators, obviously the combat arena being more popular among the inhabitants of Theissia.

5. Main Shopping square.
It is a large plaza ringed with shops around the edges, selling goods from armor and weapons to household supplies and jewelry. Several stalls occupy the plaza itself, running a daily marketplace dealing in a variety of goods and wares offered. Vendors and shop owners are all required to be members of the Guild, paying for general maintenance of the plaza and collective security to reduce the pickpocketing and general thievery. Three streets lead into the plaza and during market times, hired guards man those check points and there are patrols walking around among the stalls.

Maylor Jacobson
Wayfarer Society Chairman
NG Human Male 8th Level Cavalier (Order of the Dragon)

Description: Muscular man of average height. Mature looking, gray in his beard and hair, but not yet past his prime. His eyes are penetrating and cold when he is serious, which is most often the case.

Personal Style: He wears his platemail armor most of the time. However when he doesn't he dresses in nobleman's clothes, dark grays or black with colorful trim. Underneath he wears an enchanted mithral shirt as well. Around his neck, he wears the medallion of the Wayfarer's Society, symbolizing his position in the Theissia's chapter house.

Personality: A gruff personality, but loyal to friends and companions. He doesn't suffer fools and tends to not have a sense of humor when he is about Wayfarer Society business. He has years of experience under his belt and has little tolerance for rude or arrogant novices. Though fellow society members that have proven themselves, have found him to be a worthy friend. He is just and fair, often willing to help (or delegate individuals to help) those in need.

Vivianne

Wayfarer's Society Council Member
CG Human Sorceress

Description: Slender build and very attractive. She has grayish-green eyes and her hair is an auburn brown. She keeps it long, just below her shoulders. Her muscles are very toned from exercise, but she does have a decently curved figure. She only needs subtle makeup normally. Often she has a mischievous smile.

Personal Style: She wears earrings, bracelets and rings when appropriate. In public she is very image conscious and wears fashionable clothes. The outfits in her wardrobe range from classy, sexy to some conservative. But all the outfits are meant to be attractive and accentuate the curves of her body.

Personality: A cheerful and sensuous woman, but a little secretive about herself. She enjoys talking and being sociable. She is very persuasive and loves being in the spot light; and certainly not shy about singing and dancing in public. She can be a bit flighty, due to her fey heritage.
