Welcome to Cauldron…
City of Cauldron: Small city Alignment: Neutral Good: Population: 7,500 adults 79% human (about 5,925 adults) 9% halfling (about 675 adults) 5% gnome (about 375 adults) 3% dwarf (about 225 adults) 3% elf (about 225 adults) 1% half-elf (about 75 adults) <1>s food must be imported from Sasserine since the local fishing and farming enterprises are meager at best.
Citizens have historically paid a modest yearly flat tax of 1 gp, while merchants and nobles pay a 5% income tax each year. In addition, a 1sp gate tax is charged for noncitizens who enter the city by any of its four gates. All inhabitants of Cauldron that own a building, or are part of a family that owns a building, are considered citizens regardless of economic status. Most Cauldronites have a simple malachite ring made or given to them when they reach the age of majority. The ring always bears the town emblem. Nobles often purchase very elaborate rings, or have extravagant brooches made to show their citizenship.
