The bustling port city of Tradeburg is located in the center of several trade routes, making it an ideal melting pot of various cultures from different lands. Merchants in this town often travel from distant lands and often seek exotic items to sell to their distant clientèle. As such, it is said that this is the ideal place for heroes to lighten their load of loot while maximizing their profits. Tradeburg is the second most populated town in all the realm with a population drawing close to 900,000 during the annual summer sale.
Heroes earn twice as much as usual when selling Artifacts here. There is a better chance of finding equipment here, but at a higher price than usual.
Hundreds of years ago, a wandering merchant set up camp in an isolated spot near the sea. His goal was to journey to Herolympus and live the rest of his years in peace. He had some items but no money to make the trip. After a few days, a passing Hero, who had become well-known while fighting in the Godville Arena, decided to buy from this man. Noticing that the items were of high quality, he kept coming back. Soon, other heroes followed, and they even traded among themselves. After a while, other merchants came to sell their stuff. In only a few months, the site was packed with merchants and heroes and regular townsfolk wanting to trade. There were so many tents, they decided to construct buildings. Eventually, it simply became a city. Nowadays, Tradeburg is one of the most famous places in all of Godville.
Overlooked by the Jagged Peaks, the land is relatively flat due to the many landslides that usually occur at the height of summer every few years. The Pathway of lemmings passes close by before finishing over a cliff. It is often very windy here due to Tradeburg's proximity to the ocean but the advantages of trade outweigh this trivial factor. The buildings here are never taller then two stories which is helpful since the town layout is a bit of a mess with every free plot of land taken up by a multitude of tents.
Tradeburg is the only city without a mayor or any form of government authority. This is mostly due to it being a market based town. It is also known to be the only one without buildings taller than 3 stories high. It is one of the two cities that has a harbor for trading overseas, the other being Trollbridge. Tradeburg never has less than 10,000 people in any given day. A huge market square can be seen in the middle of the city. This is where most of the trading takes place. In the market, there is each and every single object you can imagine. It contains nearly every Artifact or piece of Equipment ever made. Heroes can find plenty of armor suitable for them in here. Because of that, prices are usually a bit high. Hence, Tradeburg has the best economic state in all the land.
