Delzimmer (Small City)

  • Nonstandard;
  • 15,000 gp limit;
  • Assets 4,661,250 gp;
  • Population 6,215;
  • Integrated (halflings 42%, human 37%, half-elf 10%, dwarf 6%, gnome 3%, other races 2%).

    Four powerful merchant families control this free-trade city: the Harlhauns, the Jathlets, the Belarks, and the Olaundrans. Though they are rivals in business, the families have managed to find enough common ground to establish some level of law and order for the town, using their private militias to keep the peace. The families all run business associated with serving caravans, including storage warehouses, outfitters, and financial services (moneylenders and moneychangers), but they are not costers themselves.

    The stone walls surrounding the heart of Delzimmer have long since outlived their usefulness. The city has grown considerably since the walls were built, and shops, dwellings, and warehouses have spilled out into the open ground beyond the perimeter. Roads have been cut through the walls to provide access to the businesses outside, and the remaining portions are in poor repair, sporting cracked mortar and holes of various sizes.

    Delzimmer's citizens are all in the business of providing services, either for the caravans traffic or for the other locals. The rest of the people in the city on any given day are caravan masters, their escorts, and the merchants who hire them.
