It is divided into a number of districts:
- the shops;
- the warehouses;
- entertainers square;
- the markets;
- the docks; and
- the Old Quarter.
The Old Quarter
This is distinguished by its rowdy drinking dens, gambling houses and even more dubious establishments lining filthy thoroughfares. It is frequented by drunks and wide-eyed smokers of suspicious-looking water-pipes.
The Markets District
In the Markets District the merchants buy and sell all kinds of wares; everything from food and fabrics to basilisk-skin cloaks, kegs of Guursh, and magical pots and pans that clean themselves.
The merchants are varied in the origins. Humans, dwarfs, elves, the odd furtive gnome, man orcs and even a lizard man peddling patent medicines and necklaces of sharks teeth for charms, can be found there.
The city is a hive of crime with many a footpad roaming its streets and the infamous 'Ashkyos guard' is no comfort being a particularly corrupt and unforgiving institution having among its captains Man-orcs.
