Toole (pronounced tool-leh) is a small port city of red adobe and rusted storage tanks eight days north of Edge. It is the nearest deepwater harbor to Edge and is the main shipping point for goods and materials between the World and Makerland. In addition to warehouses and shipping industry, Toole contains Rustlung, a holding prison for prisoners bound for Edge. The city itself is a dangerous, rowdy place as the population of dock and warehouse workers, prison guards and drifters mixes with a steady supply of alcohol, prostitutes, and ships’ crews.
Toole is under the iron-fisted rule of Warden Joss. He and his guards rule Toole with an iron fist. Corruption runs deep in the city and it is rumored (though never loudly) that Warden Joss is deeply involved with all manner of illicit activities.
