Felric's Redoubt - New Quarter
The most recent permanent addition to the city proper, the New Quarter rivals the Guild Quarter in its splendor and its luxury. Many of the middle class rich and the lower end nobles have moved their households to this section of the city, where the houses are new and the streets still pristine (some even paved). Old money still hovers in the Guild Quarter, but many of the recently successful come here to build their lives.
Originally, the land of this quarter lay outside the city limits. When the Dwarves expanded the sewers of the city beneath the Slums, they decided that it would be good to find a way to release the gases that built inside the sewers. Using a combination of engineering techniques and Dwarven runes, they channeled all the methane produced in the sewers to a location in the west of the current quarter. Here they released it into the air in a vent of flame, the size and frequency depending on the build up of the gases. When the New Quarter was built, they left the vent alone, building stone structures just around it to reduce the fire hazard. The buildings here were constructed quickly, and only a few masons oversaw all the stonework. The thieves of this area seem to move about with impunity, losing the watch at a moments notice, often disappearing into thin air. Many believe one of the masons built a series of hidden doors into the sewers below as the dwarves expanded the system.
