The city of Rigus sits on the plane known as the Concordant Domain of the Outlands. It is one of sixteen gate-towns to that link the Great Ring of the Outer Plans to the Outlands. Rigus specifically links to the plane of Law, Acheron, and thus is ruled by a dedication to cruel, unforgiving law. It has a population of about 20,000 people and has an influx of visitors ranging from humans to more uncommon lawful entities. It is ruled by General Nagaro, a human female fallen paladin, general of the Toil of Doom Brotherhood military order. Rigus is controlled by a dozen clanlike groups called military orders, of which the Toil of Doom Brotherhood is the most powerful. A general rules each order, with several officers below him or her. The generals are in turn governed by a group of lichlike spirits house in a crypt in the center of the city.
