In times of unrest, they raise the bridges into and out of the Docks at night. In other times, they still raise the bridges into and out of the Docks at night. That should tell you something about the character of the people who live and work there. Occasionally, one can see the flag of the Bloodsail in the bay on a ship leaving port, unafraid to show their true colours in that lawless port.
The criminal underclass of Stilthe is only unafraid in this way in the Docks – making it very much “Galea’s Other Capital”. In recent years, while Stilthe is being trumpeted by scholars and the wise as the showplace of “the industrial triumphs of the whole world”, some are arguing that the extent to which misery, ignorance, and vice are present in the Docks – amid such wealth and great knowledge of the “first city in the world” – is at the least an Imperial disgrace.
