Geography: Plateau City: Merchant Quarter
This quarter is the City’s second market place. Merchant Square is much more organized than the Open Palm Market, but not as much money flows from buyer to vender here. There is no Black Market here as the presence of the Constabulary Castle is a major deterrent.
The Royal Library is in this quarter and seems to be much larger on the inside than the outside as it contains portals to additional wings in pocket portions of the Shadowlands. Older manuscripts can be found far below the ground in secret and warded vaults. There are underground connections between the Royal Library to the Black Genie Center, The University of Magic, Star Tower, as well as to various temples within the city. To use the Library, simply enter and speak to a librarian. Researchers as well as Scribes and Guides are available for a price.
The Royal Courthouse is in the Merchant Quarter. Civil dispensing of justice occurs daily and is mostly open to the public for viewing and entertainment.
The High Lord Mayor’s Castle is in the northern portion of the quarter. This is where the bureaucracy of the Kingdom of New Elenna is centered as well as the High Lord Mayor’s apartment. The High Council meets and has its chambers here as well. Things run very efficiently here and all are treated with respect from the lowest citizen to the highest noble.
The University of Magic is southeast of Merchant Square and is a place where youngsters who seeks to be mages and Sorcerers come to be trained and taught.
