Unusually for the Shackles, the city of Neruma is not on the coast. It is one of the few major settlements on the mainland, and is situated in the north-east, along the Terwa River and close to the borders with the Mwangi Expanse and the Sodden Lands. Neruma is a centre for trade between the Shackles and those two neighbouring regions.[1] The main trading items purchased here are slaves, but other items of value also occasionally make their way along the river to Neruma.

The city's current ruler is Cousotta Shald. She is assisted by the Steel Cordage, a group of mercenaries supplied by the Shackles' ruling Pirate Council.

The city is built on lizardfolk breeding grounds (although the townsfolk are unaware of this), and is subject to regular attacks by lizardfolk seeking to reclaim their lost territory.[2]
