While doing research on the mercenary companies I found a record of Phoenix Company that included all of their residence halls. One of them is located in a place named Feets-Wet Cross-Market. Well, with a name like that, I had to check it out. Feets-Wet is in the middle of a place called Wobble-Grass, a swamp covering a large portion of the south-central part of the continent. Feets-Wet is a big city made of living bridges and buildings, and it was beautiful as well as terrifying. I also found out that “Market” is the title given to any town large enough to create and sustain trade. There is only one Cross-Market, where all the trade routes of Wobble-Grass come together. I found references to only two other Markets: Pantano Water-Market, on the coast of Pantano Bay, and Water Drake Hunt-Market. A Water-Market is a port. “Hunt” is the title given to any community that focuses on hunting. Water drakes are 6-8 feet long reptiles that look like a dragon mated with a crocodile. These people literally make their living hunting the most dangerous animal in the entire swamp.
Anyway, click this link for a brief description of Feets-Wet Cross-Market.
