  • Overview

Port Icarus
Truly the last civilization before crossing the Alps into the Grimme, this place is high and cold. Most of the structures are stone and heavy timber, and the town is encircled by a 15’ stone wall with battlements. Stone watchtowers with artillery flank the entrance to the bay. All trades and crafts are represented here, and the town is well-organized and self-sufficient. Control of the town is pulled at by three factions; the Fur Trade, the Mining Trade and the Military.


Size: Small City
Population: 3,000
Trade: Furs, mining (rubies and gold), fishing (the finest, richest furs in the Empire come from here.)
