The Price of Freedom is a well-respected fighting school in the Varisian city of Kaer Maga. Located in the tenaciously anti-slavery Bottoms district, the Price of Freedom teaches all those who wish the cruel institution's violent overthrow, or who wish to learn how to defend themselves against slavers. It is currently led by the ex-slave and former Chelish army commander, Black Marin, who draws on his many years of street fighting experience. The school teaches defense by any means necessary against the scourge of slavery, and encourages students to exploit every weakness and dirty trick they can imagine. The school is free for residents of the Bottoms, but charges a substantial fee to outsiders.
