[Back to Cities] [The World] [The Continents] [The Governments] [The History]
The city of Schweitz is a major trading center for the northern provinces governed by the warlord upstart of Barcellona.
The population of Schweitz is 37,500 inhabitants.
The wharf district of Schweitz is split into two separate areas. The southern area is protected by a wizard tower known as the Water Gate. The eastern wharf district is protected by the fortress known as Caesar's Palace.
Vigo as a trading center is mediocre at best. Its reputation as one of the cities in the quad alliance of the upstart Boris Caesar Napoleon, gives it limited access to the world trade. Items brought into the city are taxed upon entry, merchants doing business cannot be expected to cover the costs, so prices are raised.
Its main exports are wood, sheep, and glass.
Its main imports are grain, soap, weapons and magic.
Schweitz is one of the quad of cities that sport major populations of humans in the north. Being situated close to the mountains of Eporue, the city also sports a hefty dwarven population who aid in the trade of the city.

Schweitz is governed by military representatives of the renegade heir to the throne, Boris Caesar Napolean. The only reason his hold on the northern part of Eporue is accepted is the lack of any forces organized like his legions that can be fielded to stop him.
The city government is a sub-command of Boris's army. All military individuals assisted by clerics and wizards of dubious capabilities, they rule the city with an almost iron fist. Nothing comes into or goes out of the city without being accounted for and taxed appropriately.
The other cities of the quad are Barcellona, Trier and Vigo.
