Of Swords & Crowns
The pride of the city and the home of elite youth, a university is a place not only of learning, but of prestige. Large buildings, constructed of imposing stone and carved in old-fashioned and classical styles, bedeck the landscape. Some are squat and sturdy, and others reach for the heavens, but all convey a sense of age, knowledge, and often arrogance. Arcane and alchemical experimentation is extremely common as well, and this section is often considered the magic district of the city as well. The inhabitants are young, except for the academic staff, and most dress well. As in so many other wealthy neighborhoods, the poor and shabby are discouraged from lingering on the university’s well-landscaped grounds.
