Regions & Landmarks
The City of Bose
The City of Bose is the main settlement of the Bose region. The main attraction of this city is the huge market in the middle of the city. Heading west out of the city takes you out through the West Bose Highway toward Ravennue Village and beyond, the eastern gate goes to the East Bose Highway toward the City of Rolent, and the southern gate is for the New Ansel Path.
This is the second major location visited in Trails in the Sky, and is the central hub of everything in Chapter 1.

Inhabitants of the City of Bose:

She used to visit regularly with her grand-daddy 10-years ago and finds that the food hasn't just stayed the same quality since the restaurant's owner changed a few years ago, but it got even better. She has also noticed the sudden change in the local businesses lately. With the war so fresh in their minds, she wonders how so many are willing to openly trade with the Empire.
