The Rock is a city (known simply as The City) floating in a void of nothingness. People (and beings of all sorts) are somehow transported here, with no knowledge of where they are or how they arrived there. About twenty-five years ago a man named Xanth arrived and quickly set about unifying the various gangs/tribes that had been in a constant state of war until that point. He had a bit of help in the form of three adventurers: Magus the Magnificent, Lady Llewellyn, and Huang Feng Guozhi.
