Port Nelson: A large city, population roughly 150,000
Situated at the northwestern edge of the Old World, this port covers the outermost tip of a peninsula, stretching to the northern and southern shores. The closest nation is the Minos Empire; much of the independent captains and merchants conduct their business here, on neutral ground, rather than risk angering a Minotaur captain or noble in their own lands.
The official government of Port Jasper is a council, elected by the merchants and business owners; only those who are recognized as citizens of Port Jasper are granted a vote. The city officials maintain a fairly detailed census of the city and its merchants, with records held in several different locations and under the control of several different factions to protect the interests of all within the city.
