The city-state of Tymon1 lies southwest of the city of Daggermark on the very western borders of the River Kingdoms next to the nation of Razmiran. Tymon is renowned for its gladiators, as it boasts both a huge arena and many prestigious gladiator colleges.2

History

Tymon's history of gladiatorial excellence goes back to its founder, Maldar Tymon, who was a renowned Taldan gladiator and hero of one of Taldor's Fifth Army of Exploration.2

Local conflicts

Influential people come to Tymon from all over the River Kingdoms to cheer on their favorite arena combatants. Tymon's most famous gladiators inspire such passion amongst the citizens of the River Kingdom, that political feuds, murders, and even small wars have broken out between rival groups of fans.3

Relations with Razmiran

The proud gladitorial heritage has made Tymon a visible target, and the living god Razmir greedily eyes the city with conquest on his mind. Ullorth Ungin has to contemplate turning his valuable gladiators lose on the field of battle, supported by the bloodthirsty priests of Gorum. Each year Ullorth asks that any on the Outlaw Council who value freedom step forth to help him, and each year one or two petty lordlings offer their help, postponing Razmir's invasion for another year.2
