The Epoch Calescent
The Iron Portal
On the opposite side of the Quarter from Brilliant Damask Hall, nearest to the docks, is a totally walled-in courtyard with a well-defended, attached barracks-style “slave’s warehouse” attached. The Iron Portal – named for the three iron gates that lead into it – is the slave market of Yane. Here, myriad slavers come to sell their wares to foreigners often bound for other places by boat. Of course, the only slaves that Varangians are permitted to own are djala, so about two-thirds of the slaves sold here are of the small spotted folk, but the Guild sells enough other slaves to those bound for other shores to still make it a lucrative business selling human slaves as well. The Iron Portal is also owned by the Guild, and serves as one of their slave citadels.
