Old Quarter

The Old Quarter is the oldest and most downtrodden section of the city of Liberty. It is in the Old Quarter that the largest portion of the city’s working-class inhabitants live. Additionally, it is also the most crime-ridden part of the city, giving it the nickname of the Thieves’ Quarter. A large percentage of the Old Quarter’s inhabitants work in some capacity at the docks, either as dockhands, warehouse workers, or even sailors. Most of the warehouses and shipping centers in the Old Quarter are privately owned, though some, like the Sodden Hold, are operated by those friendly to the criminal underbelly.

The Old Quarter is a dangerous and dirty place, and though technically the City Watch keeps order the real authority is the Thieves’ Guild. Currently operated by a man known as Sepris, the Thieves’ Guild runs a number of criminal operations in the Old Quarter, ranging from gambling and prostitution rings to pickpockets, extortion, and smuggling. Outsiders in the Thieves’ Quarter often find themselves subject to muggings and theft, though much like anywhere else most murders are either crimes of passion or the result of someone crossing the Thieves’ Guild.

In the Old Quarter there are several inns and establishments suitable for visitors. Among the cleanest and most respected taverns is the Crooked House, though another safe place for visitors to the city is the Dewberry House. The roughest and most dangerous criminals, especially those capable of defending themselves against even the most ruthless thieves, occasionally stay at the Red Goose Inn. For entertainment, the House of Orchids is a clean, upscale brothel that attracts even well-to-do folk from the Noble’s Quarter. ³1text_default³1data³2summary³3*³3minor³30³3text³3The Old Quarter is the oldest and most downtrodden section of the city of Liberty.
