- "Brightmarket has its shadows, but I run a clean establishment."
Brightmarket holds jurisdiction over the waters that supply Meridian's aqueduct. It is primarily a trading settlement that has a lakeside dock, where it trades with Oseram merchants from the Claim upstream.
Brightmarket is less dense than Meridian or Meridian Village, and features simpler architecture (although still lavish compared to other tribes). Like Meridian, it has farmland to provide food for its residents.
Brightmarket was founded by Sadahin, the third Sun-King, as part of his expansion of the Carja Sundom. As the Sundom began trading with other trides during the reign of Sun-King Juwadan, and expanded further north during the reign of Sun-King Zavarad, Brightmarket became an important trading post. During the reign of the thirteenth Sun-King Brightmarket increasingly suffered as external trade (at least officially) was cut off due to his policies.
