The Old Quarter

From Shishinza’s Dossier

The Old Quarter is only “old” in a relative sense, since no part of the city can truly be called “old.” What would eventually become the Old Quarter was the island’s original settlement, housing construction crews and those supporting them while the castle of Kyuden Kumiko was under construction. The humble homes of the smallfolk gave way to samurai elegance. Buildings in the Quarter are generally tall, large, and well-appointed, and are separated by high walls and well-tended gardens; the latter particularly demonstrate the wealth of those who live here, since the plants and the soil must all be imported. All the sheltered docks on the Bay of Thunder within the Old Quarter are used solely for the Third Storm, so if you wish to catch a ferry be certain to head to the western docks.
