Port Damali is the largest and westernmost of the city-states on the Menagerie Coast, being the major hub of trade between all the western bits of civilization including Tal'Dorei, Marquet, and Issylra.[4] It has a strong connection with the Myriad, to the point that they allegedly run the city.[5] Though "most anything is legal" in Port Damali,[5] it is still a member of the Clovis Concord.

Seeker Assum Emring described the city as being near the coast of the Shearing Channel,[6] but it is a fair distance southeast of those rough waters[7] and shielded by the Vezdali Peninsula.


As a major hub of trade and travel built around a massive port, Damali is an energetic center of commerce and culture that also attracts criminals and the poor; the opulent inner city contrasts with the squalor of the outer wards, despite the latter's best efforts to add color.[8] The city is a center of naval power, as a quarter of the Clovis Concord's fleet is concentrated near the city.[9] Port Damali is also the location of the only skyport on Wildemount, occasionally receiving skyships from as far away as Marquet and Tal'Dorei.[10]

The city's cultural diversity is reflected in a dizzying array of architecture.[10] It is built on a series of leveled hills where the Tyodan River meets the Lucidian Ocean.
