Shenanigans of Laghe
The largest city in Laghe, it is a hub of commerce, politics and culture. Located in the province of Halcyon on the banks of the Liberty River, it has been the center of all important happenings since before written history; Free City was already established before the first writings were created. The population has fluctuated over the years, with a current estimate of 500,000 people including the Ruma tent settlement on its outskirts. The city is divided into sections based upon the purpose of the majority of the buildings in the area: Dock Yards, Foreign Quarter, Mage’s Quarter, Palace Grounds and Government Buildings, and the Burroughs (residences) including the Ruma temporary settlement. The republic holds sessions in the Government Buildings that are mostly converted from the palace of the previous emperors. The largest marketplace in the world sprawls along the Foreign Quarter and the Dock Yards, and ships are constantly moving people and goods into and out of the city using the Liberty River. The Mage’s Quarter is a haven dedicated to refining the magical arts as well as training guards and soldiers in the execution and mitigation of magical attacks. The architecture is a mish-mash of many different cultural styles, with Halcyon columns and ornate doorways dominating many of the older structures.
