Bravyet, the first city of the Deltib is a large, walled coastal hub of trade routes throughout the Deltib homeland. It has the most population, by quite a long way, of any settlement in the world. The inhabitants cover the vast spectrum of Deltib life ranging from rich to poor, old to young and conservative to progressive. This populace inhabits the many wards of the city that are quite heavily defined between the internal roads of the city, and bisected by the river that flows through the middle of the city.Bravyet holds one of the few Deltrib libraries within its city walls and also a university to try and progress the knowledge of its populace. Of course these are seldom used by any other than the scholars and possibly the rich so the common man and the merchant remain largely ignorant of its benefits. The person responsible for these institutions is the Bastion of Education for Bravyet, who answers to the Council.
Government and Public Establishments :
The local governing body was originally put in place in 979AC after the revolts of 930AC and 979AC. The council is held responsible to the populace at all times and most of the council members remember this and the overthrow of the corrupt council in 979AC. Eventually any council member could end up back on the street with the rest of the populace so it’s a good idea not to be too ambitious. The council tries to ensure fair taxation for everyone in the city and this is helped by the large amount of trade that goes on here as this produces a rather large revenue stream for the council to fall back on.
Laws are defined by the council and are reviewed as deemed necessary by the council. This sometimes leads to a long and winded process and obsolete laws still being enforceable, but the City Guard are known to be a sensible bunch who are well aware of the delays in the change of law and statute.
At present no other temples to other gods exist, but there is no restriction that prevents such a temple being built. The only reason that one doesn’t currently exist is that the populace is mainly devoted to the Gods already provided for in the two existing temples.
