Freie Städt is a hybrid merchant/port city built built into and down the side of a mountain emptying out into a large natural harbor. The city itself is situated along the rocky southern coast of the continent, known as one of the only ports among the treacherous stretch of coast known as the ‘Dragon’s Teeth’. Freie Städt is officially part of the Enlightened Principality of Ryuzan, but has gained their independence in all but name. The city pays tribute to Ryuzan for their continued protection from the Empire of Transoxiana and the Most Serene Republic of Astrakhan (the two kingdoms that sandwich Ryuzan). Their geological positioning puts them in a prime area to trade and the city takes full advantage of this. Being one of the largest (non-capital) cities in the three kingdoms, almost anything can be found or obtained here.
