A sprawling, unplanned metropolis fed by trade and labor. Northside merchant guilds control the marketplace under an ineffectual governing noble house more interested in prestige than it’s people. To this end Greymark’s poor are worked and taxed to starvation and crowded into packed, filthy slums near the south end riverside.
Infamous, poverty ridden rookeries here are known to shelter every variety of scoundrel, from child pickpockets to serial killers. Watchmen only enter in squads, if ever.
Minor criminal guilds and syndicates lessen their burden through the rebellion of theft, bleeding the glutted markets to eat another day.
