Vorhal_Northshire.jpg

In the early 1400’s BQ’A, a group of several Halfling communities immigrated to The City of Vorhal from the south, seeking a new home free of the troubles they’d left behind in their old Shire. They called this new community Northshire, and the name stuck. Located south of The Woods, this district is crammed to bursting with Halfling families who can trace their roots back to its founding. Many of these residents have made their home so much a part of their daily life, that they’ve opened up shops below where they live, or set up stalls outside on the street front. Dotted with stubborn fruit trees, boxed gardens and hedge fences, Northshire is a bustling patchwork district with little room for anyone other than Halflings.

Businesses

With residents straining not to spill out of its already overly full borders, Northshire Halflings have taken to traveling about as little as possible, and have almost all opened their own businesses below their homes or in the cramped spaces outside. These shops offer nearly all manner of good and services. Unfortunately with so many residents competing in overlapping spaces, coin is scarce to go around, and business are hard pressed to find room to store their wares. Those that do venture to display their stock almost always count a piece or two missing come the end of the night. This makes business difficult for many, and leaves shops able to afford only occasionally purchases of up to one hundred gold, if they can even manage to purchase anything at all.
