Gotham City Tourist Info

History

Many years ago, during a time when America was still a British colony, Gotham City was founded by three families who landed at Gotham Rock. These colonials were the Savages, Tylers and Waynes. The original land was leased from the Mochican Indians for the price of nine raccoon pelts. Every five years, the lease has to be renewed, as agreed upon by both parties in the Gotham City Charter. Since the original members have long since passed on, its up to the descendants of the three families and the Mochicans to come together to renew the lease. If the lease is not renewed on time, the land is given back to the Mochican's or their legal representatives.
