Located on the coast of the Telekeni sea Scarbour is one of the wealthiest cities in Sotin. However this is not due to trade or commerce, as trade between Humans and the other races is almost non existent. The city instead has created in wealth through the trading of plundered goods which it sells to the other provinces in Haelia.
The city is well known for the privateers (Sea Scarbour Privateers) that frequent its ports, these ravagers of the seas are paid by the city to raid the elven coasts in the south and bring back good, with the privateers being allowed to keep a portion of the plunder to themselves.
