A city in the ruins of the ancient kingdom of Ashkah.
According to the narrator, Last Hope has the air of a ruined city. Its buildings littered the edge of the coast of the Sea of Sorrows like a prizefighter's teeth. A single stone garrison tower loomed above them, and outlying farms stretched on endlessly in the distance. The populace consists mainly of fisherman, farmers, a particularly foolish brand of fortune hunter who earned a living raiding old Ashkahi ruins, and a slightly more intelligent variant of fortune hunter who make their coin looting the corpses of their colleagues.
