Ashar is famous for being a paradise for both quest seekers and people looking to hire them. It is a city of quests and adventure, containing branches of all quest lodges and most noble families.
Ashar is officially under the jurisdiction of the Purge and the Arite family. The Purge Headquarters are situated inside the city and it is the only link to the Purge Outpost situated outside of the Shield. As such, Ashar is considered as the entrance to the Forbidden Zone.
