Brastor Landing is the preeminent Market town in Brastor. 70% of all river trade and 40% of all land trade passed through this town at its height in 799.

Currently the town is one of the focii of the reconstruction effort.

Brastor Landing is traditional the summer home of the DeWinter family, but in the last fifteen years has served the Castellan and family instead. Brastor Landing does not have a Keep or Castle but has a well appointed large manor in the style of Bowcourt Palaces. Unfortunately the manor was badly damaged by fire during the war and the repairs were only finished in the winter of 807WK. The Chamberlain for the last forty years has been Lady Carsora of Brastor Landing, who is the aunt to Lord Leto. She is old but still sharp of mind, and speaks over a dozen languages. She travelled widely in her youth and warms to guests and people of good standing. She is wise and hugely influential within Brastor Landing, knowing many things about many families within Brastor. She also holds, the Brastor ball, the main social event of the summer.

As of 807WK, the town of Brastor Landing is booming. Its docks and warehouses are in constant use, supporting the rebuilding of other towns in Brastor. All of the families of Brastor Landing were evacuated before the Dark Circle damaged the area. The families and their wealth have returned and rebuilding is nearly complete as of the end of 807WK.

Trade

There is little trade as most of the food and goods are brought in by the few people looking to resettle.

The Town
The town itself was effectively raised to the ground in 804. With the return of both guards and settlers in Winter 806, the reconstruction effort has consisted of clearing rubble and rebuilding the town to a new design around the enlarged docks and markets.
The Docks
The dock area is being rebuilt, the river dredged and new piers being laid. Current plans are for a dock frontage, twice the size of the old one, able to hold up to 9 barges at a time with plenty of space for ease of loading.
The Markets
The huge Market square which used to be the focal area for the township is being repaired and will include a statue commemorating the losses suffered in the War against Rashak.
