“What happens in Parrissio…..stays in Parrissio….”
– Common saying associated with the resort.
Many civilisations have a location or place that is known for being an entertainment hub. Some are family-friendly, others are for those who seek some of the more “adult” entertainments, with many being somewhere in between. One thing they do normally share is that they are not cheap places to visit. That is not to say regular people can’t afford to go there, but unless they have a discount or some other perk, they are not the kinds of places you can just go visit when you, metaphorically speaking, find some loose change down the back of the sofa.
Parrisso can be found on, what appears at first glance, a small tropical island, no more than a mile across at its widest point. But appearances can be deceiving, for you see, Parrissio resides in an area folded in on itself, a type of pocket dimension where the inside is bigger than the outside suggests. It is not fully “cut off” from the outside world, to take advantage of the tropical weather and so on, but it’s more like the area has been “pinched”. This pinching effect means that inside the bubble, Parrissio is approximately 50-60 miles across.This has resulted in two main and very well known features of Parrissio:
- The first is that to get into the resort, one must known the teleportation coordinates of the island resort. Leaving is much easier and can be done via teleportation or at the small dock area (but this is a one-way effect).
- The second is that those trying to enter or leave the resort via other methods, such as the ocean, suffer an effect that has been compared to when certain marine animals are quickly taken to depths that they are not adapted for, only more…explosive.
Those two features resulted in one of the most secure locations in the world and soon, the uber-wealthy, the nobles and rulers and the powerful adventuring types with more money than sense made it one of their must-visit locations. The island itself is, at first glance nature in all its glory, with only a small amount of civilisation outside the main resort complex.
