It bustles at all hours, with ships arriving and departing in perpetuity. Cranes load and unload. Sailors embark and disembark. The docks are noisy and crowded, with visiting races rubbing shoulders with the native goblins and the goblin merchant sailors who arrive to drop off and/or pick up their goods. Bilgewater is the port in the South Seas, and the only one worth mentioning that exists between the western and eastern continents; as such, it sees a lot of activity, and races of all types are found here. Bilgewater is connected to goblin enterprises all over the world and is linked directly to Undermine.

Whatever you're looking for, you can find it in Bilgewater Port. The waterfront boasts inns, taverns, gambling halls, theaters, pleasure houses and numerous other businesses that cater to sailors and visitors. Deeper in the city, small shops of every kind fight for space on the cobblestone streets.[2]

Bilgewater Port is a massive industrial complex located on Kezan. Despite its name, the in-game representation of Bilgewater Port houses no docks of any kind other than a private one belonging to Trade Prince Gallywix (which is not even connected to the port itself).

Bilgewater Port is divided by walls into four 'districts' surrounding a massive inaccessible factory. The districts are: Swindle Street to the north, Kajaro Field to the east, Drudgetown to the south, and an unnamed district to the west that contains the First Bank of Kezan, a food court, and some housing. There is also a gas station in the northern part of it, across a large road. The port is flanked by Gallywix's Villa to the west, and KTC Headquarters and Kaja'mine to the east.

The port is mostly inhabited by Kezan Citizens going about their daily lives.

After the eruption of Mount Kajaro and the evacuation of the surrounding areas, it has been reported that the port city was destroyed by the searing lava and tidal waves that followed.[3]

Trivia

  • The troll slaves in the area use forest troll models, though they should be jungle trolls if they were enslaved locally.
