Thrallshaven, a port bailiwick of the Governorate of Absentien in far western Elluenuueq. Notable for being close to the frontier with Batavia and for its remoteness from the core territories of the Benacian Union. Known as Fjǫrleifsbýur ("Fjǫrleif's town") from its foundation until the Auspicious Occasion of 1651 AN, being then renamed first to Slavegate, then Thrallshaven when thrall was deemed a more politically correct term for the Froyalanish indentured servants concentrated in the region rather than slave; the name was created to suggest an end port for Froyalanish servants' exported abroad. Briefly reverted back to "Fjǫrleifsbýur" after the Kalirion Fracture of 1672 AN which saw the region incorporated into shortlived Francia.

Amokolians are excluded from port and residential districts of the bailiwick, demarcated by the twin inner security barriers known as the "peace wall".

The harbour and adjacent anchorages are typically clogged with drift ice in the winter months, limiting access in those months to those vessels with suitably strengthened hulls.


The bailiff of the bailiwick, as of 1714 AN, was recorded as being Roussel Bryennion, an Elw whose father had remained loyal during the Second Elwynnese Civil War, facilitating his son's attainment of rank in the Nationalist and Humanist Party.

Garrison and security

The cantonments of the Salb XI "Svyashchennaya Druzhina", raised in Mishalacia, are to be found immediately to the south of the inner security barriers of the port. The garrison is presently, as of 1714 AN, commanded by the Salbnan Mansour Yaghmaei. The 10th Inshore Division of the Maritime Forces of the Benacian Union utilises the harbour as its home port and base of operations.

Elements of the Corps of the Gentlemen-at-Cudgels and the Worshipful Guild of the Sacred Carnifices are present in the port in sufficient strength to maintain order within the walls and to conduct punitive expeditions into the surrounding countryside.
