"'I've heard its a den of thieves and bandits'. 'You heard correctly then. Akr is filled with those who live on the edge, both literally and figuratively'." -A conversation between Ragnar Forge-Fire and Urreek Wind-Howl, about Akr.
Akr is a small township east of Hamarr, and is known as the gate to the cliff side city. It stands before the only entrance to Hamarr, a large gap created by two mountains having collided together. The town itself is snowy, though under the snow is sand and dust. As the gate to Hamarr, Akr is filled with city guards, though this does not quell the presence of thieves in the town, rather it simply renders both sides of the law as the middle ground between honorable and corrupt.
