Port Peril

The Shackles’s largest port, Port Peril is located on the mainland overlooking Jeopardy Bay. Fort Hazard, the fortress retreat of the Hurricane King, dominates the walled city and its deepwater harbour from the bluffs on the island of Lucrehold. The twisting streets of Port Peril are lined with taverns, brothels, gambling halls, and other vice dens. Its teeming market squares do a brisk trade in all manner of stolen goods and contraband, such as Tian silks, Qadiran spices, Nidalese poisons, and Mwangi relics. Untold riches from years of plunder and tribute are said to be hidden away in the sea caves beneath the city.

Taverns in Port Peril include the Broken Jug, the Crusty Carp, the Cup and Rudder, the Formidably Maid, the Gutted Goat, and the Mermaid’s Bucket.
