—Intro to "Port Royal" by Running Wild

Usually coupled with an island and much larger than the First Town, this is usually just where the characters are going to Get on the Boat to the next continent. Otherwise expect a fishing village and a beach, perhaps with a floating fish monster. If the boat doesn't leave fast enough to get wrecked at sea, the Port Town suffers this fate instead.

Often the Port Town will only let you Get on the Boat after doing a quest, usually as a way to assure the game you're ready to move ahead to an area where you might not be able to backtrack to. If the Port Town is host to an unsavory or criminal subdistract filled with smugglers, privateers and pirates, this is the Not-So-Safe Harbor.
