Founded just over 30 years ago by Raavyly debtors looking to escape harsh treatment and the threat of slavery by The Gaaldfen Corperation, New Raavylym is the only real bastion of civilization on the continent of Xol’kuju.
In spite of those humble beginnings, New Raavylym has quickly grown from a small bundle of wooden shacks to a busy port city. Gaining its small fortune as the gateway to the interior of the continent, the city boasts a considerable number of inhabitants, most of which either looking to escape their pasts in Raavylym or wanting to take their chances in the wilds to build their names and bankbooks.
Though technically a colony of Raavylym, the new city and its surrounding settlements are only loosely affiliated with the mother continent, being thousands of miles away. As such, Raavyly law has a very limited influence on the goings-on of citizens, but a dedicated group of volunteers helps to keep those who would abuse that freedom in check.
As a haven for explorers and treasure-hunters, New Raavylym also has an exceptionally developed technologies industry, specializing in the manufacture of adventuring gear and gunpowder applications. It is actually here, not Raavylym itself, where many of the newest technological advancements are invented and first produced.
