The port town of Wellspring was founded when the first sailors found this island looking for new trade goods. The locals knew these outsiders had great things to trade, but wanted to make sure their island stayed safe, so they built a port in the only easily accessed inlet of the island, both as a gathering place to visitors, and a first line of defense if a hostile group wanted to invade the island. The port is now the second largest town on the surface of the island, second to Crossroads. This port is where traveling merchants and explorers who know how to find the island or come across it for the first time make port and register their trade goods. Given the unique state of the island, the inhabitants try to avoid introducing new plants or animals to their ecosystem until they can be certain of the effects. The druids of the Great Forest usually handle this, with help from the various other tribes when needed. Once registered, visitors are allowed to leave the port and move on to their destination(s).
