Wynds Mess is a large and unsightly dump located in the heart of Aranthaes Wynds. Covering three fire-damaged streets, the Mess is an eyesore and a blight on the city, but despite its unappealing appearance, it has become home to a small community of people who have been forced to make do with the scraps and refuse that others have discarded.

The Mess is sprawling and disorganized, with heaps of trash, debris, and waste piled high in every direction. Rats and other vermin scurry about, feasting on the scraps of food and other items that have been thrown away. The air is thick with the stench of decay and rot, making it almost unbearable to be near.

Despite the harsh living conditions, a number of people have set up makeshift shelters among the trash heaps. These homes are made from scavenged materials such as old timbers, cloth, and pieces of discarded metal. They offer little protection from the elements, but they are a place to call home for those who have nowhere else to go.

The people who live in Wynds Mess are a diverse group, consisting of the homeless, the destitute, and the outcast. Many of them are former adventurers or soldiers who have fallen on hard times, while others are simply victims of circumstance. They are a tight-knit community, bound together by their shared struggle to survive in a world that has left them behind.

Despite the difficult living conditions, the people of Wynds Mess have managed to create a sense of community and even a degree of camaraderie. They look out for one another, sharing what little they have and offering support in times of need. It is not an easy life, but for those who have found a home among the trash heaps of Wynds Mess, it is a life worth living.

Aranthaes city counselors are looking to have the Mess removed as it is considered an embarrassment to the city, whilst senior figures in the church are trying to divert some profits of the city’s wealthy merchants to help clear the waste and have the burned out houses rebuilt with free rent for all. The city’s merchants see the inhabitants of The Mess as cheap labor and are in no mind to start paying any taxes in a tax-free city.

The three parties have been in stalemate for years, so the Wynds Mess remains.
