Stones District    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Bounded by the Stones surrounding the district, “Those of the Stones” bother no one. Unless someone is foolish enough to enter where no soul really belongs.

Merhood    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Water)

If it was not for the city’s stance on tradition (and prohibitively heavy taxes on the buying or selling of property outside one’s family) these homes would of been abandoned or been a slum. However the founding trading families built homes here decades ago and have adapted in a fine fashion since then.

The Foolish Mage and Drunked Wizard Tavern    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Which is worse - a foolish mage or a drunken wizard? When halfmage Rolan Haraweir settled down to found a tavern in the Jewel City, this question became the basis for its name. The answer is still hotly debated over steaming mugs of spice-wine to this day.

MaCaferi SkyDock    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Plains)

Given the Calderonians (The Griffon riders of the floating city), the Lyran skyskips, the Dragon Confederation representives, and others, there is a great deal of flying around the region. Here is where they “dock” in the city.

Dame Ellenius's Park    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Dame Ellenius is more than a landmark, she is a person. Dame Ellenius has lived in this house for decades now.  The story as for why varies, having passed into local legend, but all of the stories agree that it has something to do with a broken heart (lost love to duty, a bitter break up, a love lost to war/ trouble/ his wife).  Given her genetic make up, she will be living in that home for a century or more. However, her home has become a neighborhood of sorts.

Tannhauser Street    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Tannhauser is a working class neighboorhood. No nobles will be found perusing it’s small market square, or the few shops there. The wealthy and powerful have holdings and investments in Tannhauser, but few would be willing to be seen on those dank streets.

Shields District    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Plains)

The Shield District is the old Orcen Mercenary Quarter. It is called the Shield District because Orcen always carried their shields. In terms of buildings, it looks the same as the rest of the town, perhaps a bit more run down.  The signs are both in Orcen and the Local tongue. The only differences are The Pits.

Fog of Mills Park    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

While travelling through an unfamiliar area of the city at night, it it easy for one to become quite lost.  Though this is an upper-class residential neighbourhood just east of downtown, the streets wind, twist, and turn in upon themselves in a rather chaotic fashion.

Gardens of Ardales    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The wealthy landowners of Ardales began to grow personal gardens on their flat rooftops.  The shade helped cool the buildings. The competition renewed among the aristocracy for the lushest garden.  Over time, the increased population caused an increase in building density, especially in the city’s heart.

The Duchampe Society of Respectable Gentlemen    Society/ Organizations  (Criminal/Espionage)   (Country/ State)

Operating out of Armudstadt, the notorious city of corruption and deceit and centre of the Kingdom of Dernwich, the Duchampe Society takes its name from its founding father, one Vergrin Duchampe, who lived around the 18th century. Duchampe, an Elvish merchantman - or rather, a leader and “godfather” of a great deal of lower Elvish merchantmen, was notorious for his skill at wagers.

The Grey Talon Assassins    Society/ Organizations  (Criminal/Espionage)   (Regional)

The grey talon assassins are a very special group for one reason. They have never been caught. They are impossibly hard to find; many doubt their very existence. Once one has found them, they can be sure the job will be done… for the right price of course.

In Azur, the streets are crowded, and the PCs' poor grasp of Azuran makes it hard for them to find out why. Still, they shoulder their way through the crowds, trying to get to the house of the renowned wizard they seek, when suddenly they realise they are standing very much alone. The crowds have ceased their talking and their gazes are fixed on the PCs. The imperiously clothed man standing before them smiles and speaks in Azuran: "Ah! Volunteers! And so eager too!"
