Payment of Existence
Onyx is the capitol of the Skullstone Archipelago, and seat of the power forThe Silver Prince. It is situated on the Northern edge of Blackmyst Isle. Ships must enter via an elaborate elevator system as the island is sheer bluffs on all sides, making it one of the most secure positions in the West.
Life in Onyx is typically comparatively easy. The Deathlord has created a vast labor force of zombies and several bonestriders commanded by honored nephwracks and nemesaries, the result being very little physical labor need be done by the populace. It is a bureaucratic city, with the living and the dead alike employed in majority by the state; the remainder are mostly sailors or traders.
Obtaining an audience with the Silver Prince is not difficult, though there is a three month waiting list to do so. Urgent matters are heard first, as determined by his ghostly seneschals; the only hard and fast rule being any matter concerning the Exalted is considered urgent.
