The largest city in all of the River Kingdoms, Daggermark has maintained enough stability to control an abundant supply of food, a rarity in this unstable region of Avistan. Daggermark is so stable that it even has a thriving industry and is wealthy enough to mint its own coin. The main reason for this stability are the two guilds for which the city is so famous: the Daggermark Assassins' Guild and the Daggermark Poisoners' Guild. These two organizations often work hand in hand, as the assassins favor the use of poisons, believing that only amateurs leave behind an obvious cause of death. It has the largest army in all the River Kingdoms and the city itself boasts both and inner and outer wall. The most powerful and prestigious members of Daggermark society live within the inner wall (called Dagger Keep by the locals), including the ruler, Martro Livondar. Rule of the city is more complicated than it appears: while Marto Livondar in theory controls the city, he would not be able to do so without the dwarven warrior Jallor Clovesh who controls the army. In addition, if Livondar were ever to lose the favor of Lady Smilos, the head of the assassins' guild, or Tragshi, head of the poisoners' guild, it is unlikely he would survive more than a week1
