Coat of Arms of the Bailiwick and City of New Harbour

New Harbour (sometimes spelt New Harbor) is an Elwynnese bailiwick and port city, located in east Suthergold (SCAR). Historically considered a part of Goldshire rather than Elwynn. Istvanistani and Præta are the official languages of this bailiwick. Population is around one million, more than so if counting the metropolitan area that takes some of the neighbouring bailiwicks.


New Harbour, along with High Harvest, was established by Count Ryker to supply Suthergold's sudden population boom with food, jobs, and residencies. The history of the city as a fishing port is also represented in the sigil, which features a dolphin on a green field. The dolphin is not only a reference to the Harbour Dolphin, which traditionally has been hunted in the week before Fishday and is served as an exquisite delicacy, but it is also a tribute to Kaiser Ari 0, who is regarded as patron of the city.

After the ascension of Queen Noor to the throne of Goldshire, it served as an Entropôt for the Royal Iron Company and was one of the three settlements that was granted to the Company as a distribution port by royal warrant of Queen Noor of Goldshire, together with the cities of Chryse and Erudition. The warrant was revoked after a failure to make annual payments to the Government.


The City of New Harbour is ruled by a High Fishmonger, a reference to the city's past as a major fishing port. Ludovic Verion served as High Fishmonger of New Harbour for the duration of its time under the Iron Company. A special council, called the "Round Table of the Fishermen" decided upon all matters related to fishing. Even when the fishing industry has been in decline, it's been observed that almost of all fish caught by SCAR fishermen comes from New Harbor. The city is part of the County of Suthergold within the Sovereign Confederation Autonomous Republic of the Elwynnese Republic.
