The sunny port into Emerald is welcoming to traders and merchants from all walks of life. The breathtaking lighthouse on the edge of the coast shines with a brilliant green beacon during the day and hot white at night to help guide ships safely into port. The city is protected by an encompassing wall with archer towers and a moat that flows in water from the bay. Military generals say that Emerald City is a formidable stronghold, with many cannons ready to defend its walls. The building of massive fortifications allowed the city to prevail through the blight.
You wake up on a ship rocking gently back and forth as it cruises towards the port. The lights are dim, and looking out of the ship you'd see that its just after dawn. Overhead you hear footsteps in every which direction.
The door to the guest chambers opened, and a gruff looking sailor with a nose piercing said it was time to go. Following him out of the lower deck, you'd see the city in the distance in all its splendor. When the ship entered port, there were several city guards standing, wearing dark green tabards with the city's emblem of the emerald lighthouse on them. The guard captain demanded the ship be cleared out.
When it was your turn to set foot on the dock, a guard asks "Please state your name for official records."
