Industrial City - Prodest



The bustling city of industrialism thrives on the economy and governing council which keep the city alive. It's rapid growth has been attributed to it's southern location, when people can't make the trek north to Terminus, they end up there, in the southeast of Secare.

The inlet that leads to the nearby lake has been dubbed for the founder of the city, fondly proclaimed the Numisma Channel. The nearby lake provides the city with what it uses to power it's growing industries. Given that most inventions and factories are producing machinery and technology which runs on water power, the city is mostly inhabited by the Velen.

The upper class sits comfortably in their well stocked homes, but the factoring capitalism leaves the lower middle class in a state of unemployment and poverty. Allegations have been made to the city, claiming acts of slavery and child labor, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Recently, there have been thefts off of ships carrying precious cargo to the city, and the culprits have yet to be caught. The council dismiss all propositions of stopping the thieves, claiming it is simply some mischief and will sort itself out eventually.

There have been talks, notes passed in alleys and bars at dusk, and it seems to many that a rebel movement has appeared to try and remove the council and create an equal chance for everybody, but all chance of a democracy are thought unlikely at present times, despite the organization of a revolution in the city's roots.
