City of Phoenix
Roads Peace Conference
At the intersection of five trade roads the Seventy Years War finally ended with the signing of the treaties which settled the borders and conflicts between the world powers. A conflict that spanned seventy years and involved nearly every nation was finally over. The conference lasted two months, with the representatives living in tents along the sides of the trade roads and meeting under a pavilion perched in the middle of the intersection. Trade caravans made their way past carrying news from the conference to the outlying cities. A settlement grew up to service and supply the conference participants, passing travelers and caravan teams. When the conference ended the settlement remained, citing on land that was officially not claimed by any nation. This settlement became known as the Free City of Roads.
