Plaza Quarter

“The Plaza District is the economic center of Gloomwrought. New goods arrive at the docks and, assuming they are destined for no other place, they’re carted up to the markets here. Restaurants and storefronts, each containing a little bit of the discal fuel that keeps the city running, line the streets. On many a corner, a peddler stands with a cart or a stall of wares, adding calls for customers to the low din that permeates the quarter. Of all neighborhoods, the Plaza District sees the most foot traffic in the city, and the buildings here reflect the constant flow of people. A store frequently packed with patrons might shift and grow over time, swelling to accommodate the crowds. Peddlers and buyers alike see an expanding storefront as a positive sign. Conversely, shops that lose their consumer base droop and rot from within, or lean precariously over passersby as if trying to gobble shoppers up off the street. Merchants compete fiercely to avoid such a fate. For anyone who needs anything, be it an item or a bit of information, the Plaza District is a good place to start the search. The mighty and influential must take care, however, since hazards await unwary customers. Gloomwrought’s interwoven political structure is no weaker here, even though the constant flow of trade obscures it. It’s possible to make new friends – or enemies – through one’s choice of stores, items, and trading methods. A shopper can leave the Plaza District with more than he or she bargained for.”
