The Kingdom of Daytar Leamay
Small City, Population:10,000
History: Set up only 300 years ago as a trade city to expedite the ease of ships bringing eastern goods into Daytar Lemay. The town itself seems like a pleasant and clean place with nicely whitewashed walls on most the building and an open and airy layout that allows easy movement throughout the city. Many places have bamboo shutters and door frames showing the eastern influences that pervade the whole place. Bamboo wind chimes are common as are long eastern style rice paper paintings. Many of the residents, particularly nobles, have taken up the fashion of palling their faces, using eyeliner and bright red lip gloss in an oriental style. This place would be out rightly pretty if it weren’t for the hollow scared look in every ones eyes and the presence of the Nails who will brutalize anyone for sport. The center of the city is a surprising sight a large cobblestone square with elegant greenery surrounding it and a large wooden platform in the center that has been soaked with blood and tar, that no-one seems to want to go anywhere near. On the first day of the weeks when the public “exhibition of justice” is held there are shish kabob and wine sellers pass through the crowd hawking their wares. Lennhis can been seen in his elegant litter off to the right of the platform eating grapes and drinking wine while the convicts receive their punishment.
Primary Imports and Exports: There are several wine makers withing the city who import massive amounts of grapes, barrels and wine jugs/skins. There is also a large amount of goods coming from the oriental kingdom to the east that passes through here. This is one of the few places besides Mat Jabar that people can purchase more exotic eastern items such as the katana, kawanaga, war fan or Ashigaru Armor (see OApg71) Silk is immensely popular amongst the merchants and aristocrats and is often worn in a blend of eastern and western styles.
