A Hitchhicker's Guide to the Planes
On the ring of Sigil, this ward runs from the edges of the Shattered Temple to beyond the alls of the Hive, the Xaositect headquarters that give the ward its name. Embraced within the ward, among other sites, are the Mortuary and the Gatehouse. The Hive Ward is physically synonymous with the chaotic sprawl and the tangled slum that surrounds it. Indeed, it’s almost impossible to be sure where the faction headquarters end and the true slum begins.
Life in the Hive is the worst of all places unless, of course, a berk likes living in the hart of decay, where anyone’s life is cheaper than the cost of a cutter’s next meal. Life here is seldom boring, but it’s also short and deadly. Honest work is scarce, so people live by whatever means they can. For most, that means stealing or signing on for dangerous jobs that no sane basher’d touch. This is where a cutter goes when he needs bodies for a staged riot, if he wants to raise a company of ill-trained fighters, or if he wants an assassin willing to risk all on a desperate job.
