Bilming is a port city in the Elendel Basin on Scadrial.[1]

Geography[edit]

Bilming is located on a peninsula on the Sea of Yomend.[1] A railway connects it to Elendel.[1]

History[edit]

Bilming is the only major port city in the Basin other than Elendel, and it is a center of industry.[2] The city's symbol is a tortoise.[3] Bilming maintains a large fleet of clipper ships and cargo ships in its "impressive" harbor, and it has recently added warships known as "Pewternauts" with armored hulls and gun turrets.[3]

One of the Set's hidden training compounds is located in Bilming.[4]

Relationship to Elendel[edit]

Bilming's status as an alternative port to Elendel appears to have caused some friction between the two cities in the past. Elendel's former governor, Replar Innate, once made hollow promises about raising tariffs on imports that come from Bilming.[5] Lord Bastien Severington, the mayor of Bilming, invited a number of senators from Elendel to the introduction of the Pewternauts as a gesture of friendship, only to have a senator named Inis Julien publicly call them pointless "toys".[3]

In 342 PC, Devlin Airs speaks to Waxillium Ladrian at Kelesina Shores' party and warns him that civil war is brewing.[2] Wax listens to Lord Severington give an anti-Elendel speech at the party and realizes that Bilming has enough power to spearhead a conflict.[6][2]
