From the Ashes of War
Sycee is located just northeast of the Black Chase on an island in the middle of a tributary to the Silver River. Less than five years old the town was originally a temporary refugee camp, but when one of the refugees found gold in the river it attracted fortune seekers from across the Scavenger Lands.
There few laws in Sycee, and even less law enforcement. The towns sheriff tries to ensure the peace within the city, but has no way to protect people outside the city limits. Likewise, the town's mayor is primarily a figurehead for negotiating on the towns behalf with outside powers. To reduce fights over claims the mayor has created an official register, where people can submit their claim. However, the register is never up-to-date, and there are no officials to enforce the claims made in it. So, people must gather support on their own, if someone attempts to infringe on their claim.
