Haven

Haven is a smugglers metropolis, built deep into the face of a grand mountain accessible only by airship or elevator, usually a small tugboat with a single lift stone (see Elemental Stones).  

'Some places are best explored by getting lost first. Haven is the sort of city you want to embrace being anonymous.' - Fenton Strongarm Delthrannix
  The main docks are in the business level of Haven. A very large disk like cavern, cut into of the mountain with 50 foot ceilings. Just inside the dock area are a barrage of carts and hecklers dealing in foods, trinkets, soaps, and just about anything else one could want after stepping off a ship after many months of travel. Once past, the crowds disperse as a maze of streets lead to a trove of other shops and boutiques. Larger buildings can be seen in the distance, some many stories high.   The roads and buildings are mainly build from stone, while very few building and the majority of the carts are crafted from heavy hard woods.   Just about anything can be bought here, if you know the right people to ask.

Demographics

All species and races are welcome to Haven. You may walk past a group of High Elves speaking with a group of Tortles with Kenku friends.

Government

A mostly self governed city, though overseen by the three top mercenary groups of the area: The Hand (Red Hand), The Confident, & third mysterious group.

History

Haven was settled by a parlay of the three faction that run the city. They created a peaceful agreement in hopes to help and promote each other.

Architecture

The city is crafted into a series of caverns built into the side of a huge mountain. Most of the buildings are created from the rocks from within the mountain, as a ways to reuse the materials.

Geography

Haven is built into the natural caverns of a tall mountain range on the southern shores of the northern continent. The many layers of wide caverns have been opened up and built out to be the home for the grand smugglers city.

Natural Resources

Haven is rich in coal, iron, and gemstone.
