ABOUT LINSBURG


Situated on the far side of the main island of The Vandermark, Linsburg was founded in such a place that allowed it to be on many travel routes, thus establishing itself as a port city. The city has organically grown in size over time, and this is evident in the winding, unorganized, roads and paths that make up most of the navigation of the city. There is an interesting contradiction in the city... It is a port city, with a fair amount of seamen, but also a home to many miners and mines. It is an incredibly wealthy city, but built on the backs of the poor. There is a small, very small tourist economy, driven mostly by the few sandy beaches that Linsburg boasts of.

There are two main sights of interest that call to people upon visiting Linsburg. The first is the massive port. The port is home at times too many ships to count, and as such is often very crowded. The docks have sprung up over time, meaning that they are often in different size and design, but still reflective of Linsburg. The port is a constant hive of activity; even into the late hours of the night does it never seem to rest. Though Linsburg has a large area of shops and vendors due to its gem trade, the port is a marketplace of its own. During the day is the normal market, where shipments are bartered and debts are paid off. At night, however, there is a bustling market filled with street vendors, betting games, and anything you could possibly desire being traded. The port is heavily guarded, as an attempt to keep Linsburg's rapidly expanding poor population out from living it. There are shacks and hovels along the docks, where those who work at the ports illegally squat, but frequently they are cleaned out.

The other sight of interest is the castle that is home to House Landalis. The castle can be seen from the port, its sea foam green dome always present. It is a large and ancient castle, one that was built when the city was first founded. Over time, it has expanded to accommodate various events and the family growing larger. The castle is kept constantly updated, receiving the proper fortifications necessary.

In between the port and castle lies a series of winding streets and walkways, containing the many shops and blacksmiths that help keep Linsburg's economy running. Linsburg is home to finest gems you will find in the realm, some would say. As a result, there are many merchants who make this area of the city their home, dealing in metalworking and gems. You can find any type of jewelry or ornate piece you desire in this part. Swords and weaponry are produced here to a lesser extent, usually pieces of only the finest craftsmanship that are typically given as gifts. There are no mass producing sword and axe shops. This area is home to the most indulgent of pleasures, an epicenter of wealth and culture for those who can afford it.

On the fringes of Linsburg is where the massive poor population resides. Due to Linsburg's constant need for laborers to run the market and ports, there is a high amount of poor people. Most of them reside in row houses on the outskirts of the city, specifically kept away from the markets and areas of higher wealth. Here, in this area, is where much of the more unsavory activity in Linsburg occurs due to the complete lack of regulation. The guards of Linsburg typically do not enter this area except in times of great need, preferring to patrol the outer rims of it to prevent "ruckus" from seeping into the other sections of the city. Most of the deckhands and miners live in this area. If you are seeker pleasures that cannot be spoken of in the general public, this is the place.
