Bridgeport is a prominent human-founded city and the county seat of Bridgeport County, which encompasses the only land connection between the Western Continent of Boresia and the Central Continent of Qail. If you are looking for something very specific to purchase, Bridgeportal is probably the best place to look.
The climate in the region is mediterranean, with summer temperatures typically around 30 °C and bright skies, with occasional rain. The surrounding area is covered with mixed forests and glassland, while the southern part of the area, towards Qail, is covered with marshes and fallen trees.
    People in Bridgeport are all dealing with their own issues and secrets, yet there are numerous things going on at many levels, from the personal to the global.

Government

The city is being ruled by a council of high ranked guild members and noble families, called Council of Ten.

Defences

Bridgeport is surrounded by massive walls, each of which contains numerous towers. The city is guarded by an outpost of the Red Dragons.

Industry & Trade

The city has been on its own for a long time and had no interest in trade with anyone else, but became finally part of the Farenian Empire when the Council of Ten decided that it was in the best interest of all Bridgeport's traders to have access to the Farenian market without the "outsider" taxes.   Main export products are spices, cheese, fabric, vegetables, fur, fish and peat.

Infrastructure

Residential Buildings: 1089
Districts: 8
Population Density: high (Avg 19.46 people per residence)
  There are several wells scattered throughout the city, and the Thunder River divides it in half, which is crossed by several wooden bridges. The city has a well-functioning sewage system. The majority of the streets are cobblestone and wide enough for waggons.   One of the city's larger projects is a Farenian Empire mandate to build a channel across the land bridge to connect the seas on its north and south sides.
