Oppidum Bulla, The City of Bubbles

In the eastern part of Prendere, south of Prodest, lies one of the largest trade centers in the world. It earned the nickname 'Bubble Town' for its strange architecture that resembles massive bubbles, suspended on sturdy poles, sometimes in large clusters. It is a merchant town featuring sprawling bazaars and markets that nearly cover the entirety of the city-state, underwater and above. Many of the buildings rival the trees of Boreas in height. There are large underwater districts made for velen and air-breathers alike, consisting of huge sealed and unsealed air pockets that house each section. Its visitors and residents move about these different 'globe stores' by way of 'free bubbles: large floating bubbles capable of holding large groups within.

This impossibly large palace of a trade center enjoys a prospering economy and community spirit, thanks to a comfortable lifestyle. If Terminus is the center of the idea world, then Oppidum Bulla is the center of the world's commerce and travel -- or so they would have their visitors believe. The city is in stiff competition with Prenditus in sports, sales, and tourism, and have held a stalemate with them almost since the cities were founded. While Prenditus has the advantage of geography, Oppidum Bulla benefits from Prodest's proximity. A known saying among the locals is, "In Oppidum Bulla, you can find anything you want, and everything you'll never need."
