Brussels, in French, Bruxelles, from the frankish word Bruocsella, meaning “The House in the Swamp”. Known as Brussel in Flemish. Capital of Belgium. Of all the cities in our world, this is probably the closest to the Obscure World. Points of Passage are very numerous, and there are many indications of a heavy traffic to and from Brüsel.
