The City of Brass is a large settlement within the Elemental Plane of Fire. It is populated primarily by those who are native to the Plane, such as efreet. And humanoids from the Material Plane are not an uncommon occurrence, but they often end up enslaved,[1] facilitating prominent slave trade in the city.[2]

As the light gets dimmer and dimmer into a red twilight, the city shuts down into a curfew. Everybody goes home, locks up, and nothing but the Illuminated with the little flaming brooches or amulets in the uniform outfit wander the streets.[8]
