Fingar, a predominantly human community, is a commonwealth run by a nine-member council, elected by and from the ranks of its adult citizens. Citizenship is by birthright or by a long application process. Not unlike real life, Fingar's history is riddled with revelations of government corruption followed by periods of reform. Glass making, pottery, woodworking and lumber processing have made the merchants of Fingar wealthy and powerful. Unfortunately, Fingar’s proximity to ogre and giant infested mountains makes it susceptible to frequent attacks. The lumber industry puts the people of Fingar at odds with the tree-dwelling elves living north of the town. Elves tend to stay away from Fingar.
