Once the original docks for commerce of the city, the docks of The Prominence have since fallen under direct control of the Emperor and the imperial government many generations ago. It is used for the movement of troops by river, and for the movement of goods direct to and from the palace. The city's merchants replaced them with the Tradefair. It is the exclusive dock where imperial sanctioned Arcstone is imported into the city, and stored in government warehouses. The warehouses are guarded by the Imperial army, who also has barracks in the area.
