Welcome to Sharn: A Brief Overview of Your Fair City
Sharn is a great Human achievement. Its massive towers pierce the sky and take root in the earth below, making it a beacon of pride and hope unto all the world. The city is broken up into five sections: The Skyway – which consists of the tops of the tallest buildings, some of which are connected through pedways; The Upper City – which is where all of the rich people who live in Sharn spend their living and working hours, and is not physically separated from the Skyway at all; The Middle City – which is again, not separated physically from the Upper City or Skyway, but this where the middle class citizens live and work, mostly as artisans and traders, or skilled workers like mercenaries and carpenters; The Lower City – where the handsome rogueish types and dissidents dwell in their criminally content society, it is physically separated from the Middle City by the ‘floor’ above, therefore it is significantly darker, lit only by artificial golden light; The Cogs – which is the lowest part of the city where all of the massive gears that operate the many gates are housed, as well as the mechanisms that help the levitating buildings of the Skyway to stay afloat.
Each section houses a very different variety of individuals, but somehow they all manage to fit together well enough to make Sharn a well-functioning civilization.
