Of Swords & Crowns
This district is a destination for all who seek gray-market, semi-legal, and illegal services. Illicit substances, gambling, dealers in stolen goods, and crooks-for-hire—all are found here. It is clearly a high-crime area, and nearly everyone is trying very hard to be noticed or not to be noticed, depending on what they’re buying or selling. The city guard patrols the district, but frequent bribes ensure it turns a blind eye to “dubious” goings-on so long as they don’t harm or inconvenience important people. Indeed, the guard makes a habit of harassing passersby, making visitors almost as wary of the soldiers as they are of local criminals.
