The Travelling Throne
The trade road town of Bravelia is the congregation of market places, shops, and accommodations that serve as a focal point for the surrounding farms and vast grassland. The only true residents of Bravelia proper are tavernkeeps, middlemen, and service providers related to facilitating trade. Greater Bravelia includes the many farm families and micro communities that spread across the fertile expanse between the Duskin Wood, the Vaporlay Range forests, and the untamed woods of the Southlands.
Bravelia arose naturally as farmers, traders, carts met for exchange soon after Luceredin was founded. At town proper began to form as extended stays, sustenance, and entertainment became necessary to meets the needs of the near constant trade that was occurring. Unfortunately this left the trade town defenseless during the rampage of the Dark Chimera. The northern towns sent forces as the swelling horde was spotted marching from the south, but Bravelia was razed to the ground in a terrible defeat.
Once the Dark Chimera was repelled at Luceredin, Bravelia rebuilt as the region recovered. A loose government with a mayor and council of three representatives: a farmer, a merchant, and a town proper business owner was devised by a gathering of the locals. A light standing militia and checkpoints stretching the trade road north and south were established to avoid the catastrophe in recent memory. Since Bravelia has become a teeming center of trade, rivaling the larger cities of the north, but still lagging behind in traditional organizational or residential development.
