Comprising the western rim of Outcast’s Cove and ending at the statue- studded point called the Wyrmwatch- a lighthouse said to overlook the spot Alcaydian Indros battled the Vydrarch, a legendary sea monster-Beacon Point is a raucous home to traders, sailors, and hardworking, hard-living families of all sorts. Numerous warehouses, shipping concerns, and other businesses fill the area, as do numerous simple but boisterous brothels and taverns. The farther one travels from this district’s borders, the more closely packed and poorly maintained the buildings get-many critics of Magnimar see Beacon’s Point as a metaphor for the whole city as being a shell of civility and industry wrapped around a corrupt heart.

This core of slums hidden in Beacon’s Point is known as Rag’s End, a cramped, and maze-like knot of alleys where the poorest of the city’s working class make their homes. Temporary laborers , crippled dockhands, drunks, and the sorely out-of-luck scrape by on coin earned from begging, performing odd and often demeaning jobs, and the charity of the city’s sympathetic religions. Much of Rag’s End is owned by Slumlord Rassimeri Jaijarko, a greasy half-Varisian drug dealer with ties to a Sczarni gang known as the Gallowed.
