The city is built within a torus that floats above the Spire at the center of the Outlands. How, nobody knows. Spells work fine and a body has no problem living here, except for all the smoke, the polluted air, the everlasting acid rain, the razorwine, the cranuim rats, the fiends, the cross-trading knights and a population of generally berks. Most say it's the Lady who keeps everything working. Maybe she even built the place, but when nobody knows.

Canny bashers should find Sigil a place of infinite opportunity. First of all, a body can get anywhere from here and can get here from anywhere. That alone makes it the most important place in the multiverse. Sigil is a center of trade; not only here a body can find whatever she's looking for, but she can find surely somebody with a need of whatever she has to offer. The Cage is also the center of factions activity. The Lady of Pain permits and tolerates the factions, their assumptions of power and their various philosophies. As long as they don't threaten her goals or the city as a whole, she doesn't pay them any attention.
