Once the biggest port out of Izlude and Delenheim, it was a place of high importance for sea faring trade until the relentless attacks by pirates, resulting in little to no business on top of a destroyed reputation. It wasn’t until recently that it has gained back some of the commerce lost, as Balmora’s reputation began to slip. Seen as the gateway into the desert by most travelers, the city has reclaimed a lot of its lost glory in the recent years.
