The Cliffsiders of Tammisaari are a motley bunch of refugees, thieves, exiles, and others in hiding who are tolerated by the royal House of Vainola, but not welcomed within the city's limits. It is said that the royal house keeps informers among the cliffsiders' taverns and houses of ill repute so as to better monitor and understand the city's criminal element.

The House of Vainola's enforcer among the Cliffsiders was a thug known as The Horseman, but he has died under mysterious circumstances.

Among the establishments located in the Cliffersider section of Tammisaari is the notorious Red Ogre Inn.
