Inner Sea Adventures
Unlike in Korvosa, guilds are quite actively encouraged in Magnimar, and with enough luck and skill, anyone can rise to a position of power. The local Varisians are much more tolerated here, although they still tend to dwell in specific ghettos inside the city walls. Magnimar’s rule is split between Lord-Mayor Haldmeer Grobaras and a Council of Ushers. As the city grows, so does the Council, and in time the city of Magnimar may well outshine Korvosa, especially as word that Magnimar places fewer restrictions on trade reaches farther into the world. Certainly Magnimar’s holdings are healthier than those that surround Korvosa.
