Port Mercer began as a quaint, bustling port on the east coast of Georgia... quaint, besides its tendency to attract the wrong kind of attention. It was common knowledge that the docks, along with various establishments downtown, were infested with pirates. But something drove them out of their safe harbour and the town was left to languish for nearly a century, something the few townsfolk that remembered did not speak of.
Most from the neighbouring cities were still afraid to settle there, even with the pirates long gone. Then came the civil war, bringing it back to life- at a price. The town's strange reputation resurfaced once more, however this time it was from the talk of ghosts instead.
But prosperity was not to shine over Port Mercer forever. It was eventually overshadowed by the neighbouring town of Savannah, and fell into obscurity once more.

MBC TV Station The oldest operating station in Port Mercer, the Mercer Broadcasting Channel has been in operation since December 9th, 1937. Originally used for weather and emergency announcements by radio, the station has expanded to include a variety of shows, both entertaning and informative.
Southeast Boulevard The most modern part of town with a variety of bars, restaurants and clubs, although the traditional exteriors of most buildings have been left untouched, resulting in an interesting contrast between the two sides of Port Mercer.
Or more commonly known as Port Mercer's twenty-four hour entertainment district. Although not all of it is exactly family-friendly, it has a lot to offer and holds countless performances throughout the year.
Blackwell Medical Plaza Doctors offices all placed within this one building. For any sort of check up visit you may need, this is the place to get that fixed. Although, for emergencies or inpatient treatment you will need to head over to the hospital.
Merteuil Luxury Apartments This rare combination of modern architechture and a classic interior is the perfect combination for those elite uptowners looking for quality housing in the center of the busiest part of town.
Ardsley Square Tall governmental buildings surround Ardsley Square, this is the real historic part of the city. The oldest buildings in the whole city are located here. Mostly just business around these parts though.
Winters Avenue This street has been home to many businesses that have gone through generations of Port Mercer families. Always the small and reliable shops. Along with those are the fire station and historical society.
Liberty Lane The Residential area, The Port Mercer Historical Society did a huge reconstruction on all of the downtown homes that were in ruins. Now they hold all the charm they originally had. The most valuable houses in all of the south.
Drayton Street [QUARANTINED AREA] Drayton Street is home to most of the food in the downtown area. All of the chefs back in the day grouped together, building their restaurants close to share in the love of the business. After a nice meal a walk through the park or a short shopping trip of odds and ends can be done here aswell.
Suffolk Row [QUARANTINED AREA] Undoubtedly the smallest street in town, at least in regards to width. This has given Suffolk Row a charm of it's own, cramped with quirky, charming stores that don't quite fit on Winters Avenue.
Moreau Plaza Home to the local public market when the weather permits. You can find carts and stores selling anything from fresh produce to fine foods here. The 'mini' flea market is especially lively on the weekends.
For nearly a century Wensbrook has been helping its students achieve their potential and make a difference in their chosen pursuits. The campus was moved from its small downtown location to a the site of a renovated orphanage during the 1930's, and has been there ever since.
Daffin Memorial Hospital The oldest building outside of downtown, perhaps just as old as the Mercer house itself, dating back to the 1700s. Many tend to question why the hospital is situated so far away from town- while forgetting the morgue and psychiatric ward attached to it.
Willowview Crescent A long row of less expensive homes just as old as Liberty Lane. The houses here have been less well-maintained, but the large land on a few more than makes up for it and are also ideal for farms.
Ellis Creek Located in the northenmost point of Port Mercer. It's usually much cooler here and is a hotspot for hikers, nature enthusiasts and campers, with the foliage and quiet atmosphere being different from the rest of town as well.
Candler Oak Drive The creepiest area in all of Port Mercer. With the abandoned areas and the cemetery located here it's no wonder why it's called that. The brave and rebellious often come here to prove themselves but most leave with a feeling of fear and nausea.
