Of Swords & Crowns
The civic district, or noble quarter, is the seat of government. Nearly everyone who works in the district earns a living from the government, either directly or by serving the needs of city officials. Although adventurers must come here to meet officials who have posted job offers and rewards, guards and local inhabitants frown on the presence of “rough and tumble” types. Those who obviously do not belong (especially the poor) are advised not to loiter. Fancy garb at the height of fashion is common, crafted from the finest materials. The streets are crowded with carriages and couriers both on foot and horseback. The hum of conversation fills the air, punctuated by the occasional trumpet calling some assembly to order. Workers keep the streets relatively clean, so the district has a better odor than most.
