On the coast of the Grey Sea, the town of Redmont hosts respite for those who trade both on land and by sea. It is named after the Earl Redmont who founded the town 60 years ago, and his grandson Luke Redmont resides in the Redmont Tower at the town's highest point.
As the sea is likely to flood, large stone barriers separate the beach from the ocean. Unfortunately, from time to time this does not deter the waves, who climb the wall to flood the lower parts of the town. Consequently, the wealthy live either on the south side, between the town proper and the farmlands, or in the Redcliff disctrict; the overbearing north cliff overlooking most of the ports. The poor live closer to the beach in semi-permanent structures, and the market is an open square for temporary vendors to set up shop.
Despite the flooding, the market has gained a reputation for hosting a large variety of cultural goods at relatively low cost.
Redmont has 3 main gates, at each is a toll booth for merchants. Visitors and Leavers must submit to a search if declaring they hold no goods to avoid paying the toll. This is the same for the port access, with all ships leaving port to get permission from the portmaster. The tolls cause traffic to be slow in Redmont, especially around the gates, thus a number of freeposts exist in the wall for non-traders to leave. One guard is posted at each, and the roads outside the walls are poorly maintained, but do lead back around to the main roads.
