Class: Metropolis
Area: 2.1 sq. mi. (1311.5 acres)
Founded: 317
Population: 80,000

Ruling Body: Baron Vandal Nysor, Priest of Keradre. Rumored to be a shape-shifter who sneaks around the city in different forms to spy on the citizenry. His residence is in the Gallows and named Blackcircle in honor of the Unholy whom he worships.
Armed Forces: 533. The city guard are known as Lowblades, and wander through the streets in disorganized bands, causing as much chaos as they stop. They are ill-outfitted and poorly trained, in general, and wear red wraps to indicate their station. Commanders wear short fox fur stoles. Groups of The Hallow can sometimes be encountered in Gullport, either on leave or in the city for some other purpose. They are not official city guard members, but have near-complete autonomy to act however they see fit and generally outrank Lowblade commanders.

History
The land containing Gullport has had a near constant array of settlements and towns on it since the third century. A vital port location, it joined the Nihan kingdom in 317 and managed to flourish through many name changes, kingdoms, and natural disasters over the next century. The Raikk invasion and the Silent Contagion brought the city’s first tastes of mortality, finally seeing a rebirth and renaissance during the time of Varith. The Black Dawn brought dust and drought and the end of Varith, and Gullport was born, slowly recovering over the next five hundred years as an independent port city.
Most of the docks in Old Hab were set aflame and destroyed in 1645 during the coming of the Perdition. The destruction was never fully cleared, and what few new docks that have been build were put in place north of the old. The charred remains of buildings in Old Hab and parts of Searow, the Line, and Harbor Row still stand abandoned to nature and the elements, many reputedly haunted.
