Cows and Greggor Twin Blade, friends prior to their journey to Ki’qu, meet Zula at the Pathfinder’s Guild. Cows is a half-elf ranger from the northern area called The Forest. Greggor Twin Blade is a half-elf rogue from the streets. They met previously at the Pathfinder’s Guild, had a few misadventures and became quick friends.
Enter Zula, a half-orc paladin of Nethys. It is unclear what the half-elves make of him, but Zula seems to be making a good name for himself.
So, the town of Ki’qu, pronounced KEY-quay, is located on two very important airship trade routes. Thus the town is small, but has a large transient population that moves thru town on a regular basis. The town industry is mostly geared towards supporting the airships and their crews, with several inns, bars, and equipment retailers.
Ki’qu is in the Free Frontier. This area is made up of free cities who formed a loose union to stay independent from the surrounding nations. The union has a standard currency and laws, but leaves the towns to govern themselves separately.
