Default [Setting] Amboseli

So this is the city I wrote up a while back for a D&D game, this is all just fluff so it can be used in any fantasy setting or whatever. I went with names and words that either I find fun to say (Guggenheim) or sound cool and yes i got the tavern's name from Doctor Who cuz it sounds cool. I've also posted this in a number of places over the last year or two, this is the most current and update with names I prefer over other copies.

It should be noted that I didn't take the time to explain in detail every little thing.

But anyway here we go:

The city of Amboseli sits at the mouth of the River Shal. It's a major shipping harbor for the kingdom it lies in. Along with also being a major overland trading route. This made it one of the richest cities in the kingdom. It's current population is 50,000. One of the major taverns is "Demon's Run". The city is ran by the Lord Mayor who acts upon advice given to him or her from a council made up of business members and members of the upper class. The city is also home to a number of different religious orders that also give advice to the Lord Mayor.

Amboseli is divided into sections with the largest being the Trade district along the river and the Harbor, this is where Demon's Run is located and along with a number of drunk sailors. This is also the home of the shipping company Guggenheim LTD. The company employs a large number of workers from officer workers to ship hands to warehouse workers.

North from the Trade district is the city center where the government offices are located along with a number of buildings belonging to foreign Governments . Then to the east and west are residential areas, and scattered around the city are the various churches and temples.

Along the outer edge of the city are also a number of farms that grow food and raise animals.

"X International" is an odd name for a corporation in a setting that still thinks in terms of kingdoms and realms.

It sounded cool when I created it

EDIT: I'm thinking of adding some more people of interest,is there any other info anyone would like? I'm also working on a map showing the city in its relation to Calmarnock.

The idea is very interesting. I'm just not sure whether a wiki wouldn't be more appropriate for this writeup.
