Tahl Town is named after its founder, Joban Tahl. Once a simple farmer living outside of Amarillo, Tahl became frustrated with the rule of the Lims. He vowed to end the tyranny of the Lims. Many of his peers shared his views, and gladly followed him into the wilds to the west of the capital. The new alliance built a city to call their own, and declared themselves to be an independent kingdom.
Tahl Town is often referred to as "Bandit Town" by those loyal to Amarillo. Tahl Town has few modern conveniences, and its people have a gruffness about them. Most of the residents of Tahl Town are outcasts. Some are criminals on the lam, paupers who couldn't afford life in Amarillo, or mages hoping to perform magical experiments without government regulation. Regardless of each citizen's reason for living in Tahl Town, they almost universally share a hatred of larger governments.
