History

Jingzhou is centuries old, but growth was slow for most of its history, due to the harsh conditions. Once Carvel planking became available trade could increase and this allowed the city to grow.

An important part of the city's history was when the Goblins were found beneath the city, which caused a widespread panic and street fighting as both major parties wanted to get rid of each other, even though they've been living in a symbiotic relationship. The Goblins created and maintained vast sewer systems.
