Etent serves only one purpose: a place to keep all the metics and foreigners. Metics are permanent residents of Ageutia who were not born there, and thus are not full citizens. However, while not politically allowed any representation, they are expected to fight for the defense of the city, should they be called to arms. Foreigners, however, are merely people who come and go, and all the inns and hostels within the city are located in Etent. Given the diverse backgrounds of those who live in Etent, the neighborhood has a rather non-uniform look to it, containing many different styles from different cultures. No real businesses exist within Etent—metics work in the other neighborhoods—merely it is a way for the local authority to keep a close eye on untrustworthy foreigners.
As foreigners, the party all live in Etent and are familiar with some of it’s many interesting sights:
- The Landlord’s house: A small home, filled with a few comfortable artifacts, but without anyone to live in it.
- The Ruins of Achim Nadir’s apartment: After a small earthquake which turned it to rubble, a number of illegal bits of property were exposed in the debris, causing Achim a world of woe.
- The Sterling Foal Inn: Where Achim and Dagrin Tokaast met, and where Achim and Red currently live. While it isn’t a dive, it is a bit “plebeian.” It serves excellent lager, and its waitstaff are all young men.
The City Guard of Etent—better known as the Etent Bills—keep the often explosive nature of the neighborhood under control.
