Twilight of an Age
The most mercantile of the Seven Cities, Glitterhaegen is an economic power house. Its prosperity originates mostly in its proximity to the dwarven city of Forge, which trades precious gems and metals with the human, half-elven, and gnomish merchants. This economic strength means that the Imperial governor’s power pales before that of the merchants’ guilds. The thieves’ guilds, including the Red Hand, also do well enough here but are not quite as prominent as they are in Shadow Port.
