Fort Port    Locations  (City)   (Water)

Fort Port started as a military fortification on the mouth of the Antioch River at the Known Sea, three days West of Antioch (the city).  Slowly a small community had sprung up around the Fort and its tiny port.  After decades of watching for Wapti, the militia was pulled leaving the few River Clanners behind. The Rat Clan took The Fort for their own, making it their clan house. However things were not grand as the farming was poor and the fishing not much better. But, there is always ships along the waters here.  A great deal of traffic in and out of the river and along the coast.  And so many things seemed to just "fall off" the deck and docks in these waters… finding their way here. And well, someone has to sell them.

Port Reliance    Locations  (City)   (Water)

Port Reliance is a squalid little port town, a hive of pirates, murderers, thieves, brigands, and brawlers.  The lowest of the low, the most desperate of sea-farers end up here sooner or later.  Adventurers will fit right in.

City Image - TearDrop City    Locations  (City)   (Water)

It is strange to have a city between two towns, especially when the two towns were there first and are “famous”, but such is the way of Sand City.

City Image - Chedru    Locations  (City)   (Water)

The city of Chedru is one of the strangest Elventi cities in existence.  It echos the traditional giant HomeTrees and catwalks between them of "normal" Elventi city.  Yet there is no forest here.  The Elventi were deposited here, far from the green trees and mountains of their traditional homelands.  They have made their Way here.

       By: ephemeralstability

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
