People of all nations and races can be found in this thriving metropolis, and trade from all across the Flanaess passes through Greyhawk.

The people of Greyhawk pursue knowledge and wealth. The University of Magical Arts and the Grey College, among its many schools, attract students from all across the land.

Those who wish to talk, too, come to Greyhawk. With its reputation as a free City standing at the center of all its laws, Greyhawk provides a safe haven for diplomats and ambassadors who cannot travel to faraway lands. While this volatile mix often breeds intrigue and occasional small-scale violence, the Lord Mayor brooks no major incidents--and getting banned from the Free City is something no diplomat wishes.

Still, some do not care for the Free City's benefits. The dread Horned Society has shown this--recent ritualistic murders beneath Greyhawk's streets concern many citizens.
