Heriseni is a freezing city located on the southern tip of the Arctic. The pixies living there are guileful and shy toward strangers and have learned to rely on their own cunning to survive. The lack of arable land has led the city to seek other means of gaining wealth. The extreme corruption and illegal trading in Heriseni keeps out the righteous and welcomes slave traders, drug dealers, pirates, and other criminals. Many adventures pass through the city on their way to explore the dark portal; pixie shop keepers often follow these adventures from the shadows to pick up their gear when they inevitably die.
