Westharbor

It is mostly functioning as a sort of trade hub with more warehouse space then housing space. It is the only port city on the entire western half of the continent and makes a good profit from that monopoly.

Local History
Noteworthy Businesses
– Taverns
– – Sails of Glory – A full-service tavern built near the warves.
– – The Wyvern’s Rest, an old, old tavern which has seen better days. Much of the mortar has been replaced by straw stuffed into the cracks of the walls, and none of the chairs, tables, or benches come from the same set, but most of the stools from a purchase ten years ago are still there. The legend is that a great warrior had tamed a wyvern into his mount, and when he had gotten too old and his mount had passed away, he used the bones of his wyvern in the foundation and structure of the building and retired, becoming a tavern-keeper.
– – Défi et Honneur: When the great vice-admiral Comte François Comte Jean-Baptiste d’Estaing retired, the West Harbor navy saluted his legendary career by decommissioning his flagship, the war galleon Défi et Honneur (Defiance and Honor), and giving it a permanent berth in the harbor, where it was converted into the tavern the beloved admiral had always dreamed of opening. Although the naval hero has since passed into memory, his heirs continue to run the unique establishment.

Fishing Boat Lucky Breeze of West Harbor is not a typical fishing boat. Its captain earns his living harpooning the soarwhales that inhabit the clouds high above the west coast of M’Kal. In order to avoid the paralyzing gas that soarwhales use to defend themselves, the vessel has to be fast and nimble. Dexterity alone is not always enough–the ship is named for a strong gust of wind that happened to blow the captain out of the way of a soarwhale’s defenses. It is not a large ship, only caravel-sized, but an extraplanar cargo hull allows it to carry plenty of the soarwhale gas glands, which command a high price on the alchemical market. The ship is currently in need of repairs, but the captain has not been able to find the arcane shipbuilder who used to service his whalehunting airship in West Harbor (he seems to have disappeared).

Crew of Lucky Breeze fishing boat (West Harbor): Mostly avariel, with some fey and anthropomorphic birds. The few unwinged crew members are looked upon as oddities, and wear a form of parachute while the ship is flying. The captain, Laucian Dalanthan, is an avariel ranger. He has thick toned arms and a broad chest. He is dressed in earthy colors with a black and white sash worn on his waist. His hair is silver, silky, and of moderate length. He has amber eyes. His wings are mostly white, with black-barred tips on the primary feathers. Laucian is happy with his job as a captain, but he has a hard time showing it; he believes that if he is ever easy on his crew of avarial, he will lose their respect. He seems to have a critical eye for everything his crew does, but often gives his orders and criticisms with a half-hearted gruff. His crewmen are loyal and love him like a blowhard uncle.
