|Known for||Expensive stuff, expensive skills|
Present-day Egopolis was founded by a hero named "John Ego." Ego was a noted philanthropist and an all-around great person. He tragically died in 12 B.G. while trying to save a mother and her small child from a ghoulkeeper, but Ego lives on the memory of the thousands who admire him to this day.
Unfortunately the name "Egopolis" attracted narcissistic, self centered, guiltless jerks over the years. If your guild is well-known here, it might be due to that very reason that your members belong in the town or are very good at feeding the people of Egopolis' ego. Nonetheless, a city full of residents that deny that they are wrong at all whatsoever are good people as well as less bothersome to have on your side. This town has a lot of things it is good for, but it is primarily a place to rest and gain a sort of self-confidence.
In Ancient Times
Ego founded his town in a place that has long supported pre-Godvillian civilizations. Excavations are ongoing, but Ancient Egoptian societies have so far been noted for monumental buildings, the first known diaries on a proto-paper called "papyrus," pictographic and ideogrammatical writing, a high regard for the afterlife, and the worship of cats.
Heroes and heroines most often visit Egopolis for the high income earned from any items sold there. "One of the best places to come back to after a good ol' dungeon raid." The reason for this being that the mayor of Egopolis was once convinced by a hero that if the city was so great, it would only be natural that heroes come there to sell the best of items; flaunting its wealth would be a way to show other towns Egopolis' superiority. This, of course, lead to grave consequences resulting to the town's bankruptcy, but since the gullible mayor of Egopolis refused to admit he was wrong, this practice has been continued up to this day. Result: expensive items and skills.
If you take a proper look around the town and stay a while then you will see how broken, penniless, and blind this town can be.
But that's none of a hero's business now is it?
