The story takes place in and around the city of Dawgandar, the Kingdom capital. The judicial system is based on a somewhat creative evolution of the Code of Hamurabi or something similar, as Estyn finds out when she joins the City Guard. The city is multicultural, incorporating elements of ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, the Phoenician states, and a few other places. Estyn begins tackling some problems that the locals either didn't notice or didn't want to, for the sake of justice, rewards, and to cut down on the really nasty crimes to be found in a pre-Third World, pre-modern society.

Background: When the Werewolf Wizard invented his interdimensional transit system, he began establishing a vast empire, which wasn't an alternate reality, but which he intended to connect to all realities. Forced into another dimension by a disloyal lieutenant, he waited for an opportunity to return. The way was paved for him by the Master Slayer, an Elf dissatisfied with the lot of female Elves, a brilliant intellect, and a gifted assassin. (Quote: "Why should I sit around in a hollow tree and wear gossamer and spin lace? Do you know what gossamer is? It's gods damned spiderwebs!") The Master Slayer also liberated the Werewolf Wizard's technological fortress, including his cloning equipment.
Now, more than 86 years later, there are a lot of Slayer Elves, and Slayer A4 Estyn is one of them.
