Sharn: The Last City
Northedge, the most residental of Sharn’s quarters, contains everything from towertop penthouses in the heights to tightly packed apartments on the lower levels. Aside from a marketplace district near the bottom of the towers, Northedge is quite neighboorhood with little commerce and little crime.
Northedge is one of the quietest regions within Sharn. Most of its inhabitants are crafters and commoners, people who make an honest living within the great city. As a result it is an uncommon destination for adventurers. However, a variety of tradesfolk and artisans work out of their Northedge homes, and it is possible that a party will be recommended to one of the Northedge specialists.
In addition, if an adventura wants to take up residence within Sharn, the prices in Northedge are quite reasonable. Finally, while Northedge is known as a peaceful region, this calm facade can make an excellent cover for sinister activities. In other words, Northedge makes the perfect hiding place ofr master villain, a nefarious cult, or a cunning spy.
Upper Northedge is home to those who have the wealth to purchase a manor in the clouds, but who whish to avoid the bustle of Upper Central. This ward also houses the majority of Sharn’s population of elves.
Middle Northedge is a peaceful residental ward, featuring some of the finest average housing in the city. The inhabitants are successful, hardworking folk, and the streets are clean and quiet. Much of the dwarf population of the city lives in this ward.
Lower Northedge is home to the hardworking laborers of Sharn- generally devent folk who believe in an honest day’s work and can afford to stay out of Lower Dura. The people of Lower Northedge don’t look for trouble, and they don’t like it coming to their towers. The ward is relatively simple in structure and design, but it has been kept in good condition over the centuries and is a pleasant enough place to live. While it is largely residental, it includes a number of small workhouses and simple schools, along with North Market.
