Of Swords & Crowns
Most foreigners in a city dwell in the poorer quarters, limited by both local prejudice and lack of understanding of other customs—but few governments want to risk angering other nations. Thus, ambassadors, officials, and visiting nobles from abroad are housed in the embassy district, if only because insufficient room is available in other upper-class neighborhoods. Although the attempt is weak at best, the local builders have tried to emulate as best they could of their guest’s architectural style when building the structures in this district—Tehkoni, Tamusari, Sildutari, and even Orc buildings can be found here. The ambient sound of the area is noticeably different from the rest of the city, due to the unusual languages and accents of the inhabitants, and exotic clothes and fashions abound. Embassy districts are well guarded, and people without legitimate business in the area are brusquely escorted elsewhere.
