Travelogue excerpt: journeys of a Historian

Visiting Figmenton is an absolute must for any traveller wishing to discover the Brivayan Trade Republic. The town has existed since long before the republic, and remains a dynamic and pleasant city. It was one of the first towns out of the Lunid river system to be fully integrated in the republic, along with the neighboring city of Spirklaus. However, the two settlements followed drastically different developments. Where Spirklaus was close to the sea and intensely industrialized, Figmenton developped itself more slowly at first. It was only at the end of the first century that the city picked up steam, thanks to the development of fast communication and transport methods towards the capital.   While Spirklaus is a crafter and worker settlment, Figmenton is quieter and more elevated, as one might say.

One may want to visit the Spirit Hazel neighborhood and its historic manors, or wish to visit the meandering lanes of the Hilltop Park, next to the communal University.   (...)
