With its central location, and its placement along many popular trade routes, Middlehaven is a very popular city for robust trade. This fact is celebrated every year with an annual “trade festival,” during which people from all over the world congregate to look for great sales and one-of-a-kind items.
Magic is forbidden inside of Middlehaven, punishable by a trip to the Mage’s guild (which, to the villagers, seems to be a more frightening fate than death itself).
Primarily human population, although the city houses Elves, Half-elves, and Dwarves in equal measure. Because it is a fairly small city, more magical races are uncommon. There is a general prejudice against Half-orcs.
