Bellybrush

Bellybrush is town in the Green Delta. It is the primary suburb of the human city of Ack, located about a half-mile east along the Kingsroad. The town was founded in 701bc as a retirement community for the fisherfolk of Ack, and quickly grew into an agricultural community in its own right, focused around the raising of pigs.
