Sprawling all around the lowest levels of Antis are its docks – assorted piers, slips, dry docks and warehouses project out onto the water while wharfs, taverns and further warehouses crowd the terraces of the city. If trade is the lifeblood of the city then the docks would be the city’s heart.
Whilst in many coastal settlements the waterfront districts are often the poorest of slums with dockhands living in hovels near their places of work, in Antis trade has improved the docks to a more refined level. Merchants and their guards hire opulent rooms in well decorated and staffed inns. The streets are regularly patrolled by the city watch. Foreign sailors enjoy the night life in the taverns but are kept in line by the locals who know they can make more coin when the watch aren’t involved.
At any time there are hundreds of ships docked in Antis and flying the colours of dozens of different nations or trading groups. If you need goods or passengers transporting there is a high chance they will move through Antis at some point.
