The Garrison District

The Garrison District

Vorhal_Garrison_District.jpg

Home to most of the soldiers and sailors of The City of Vorhal‘s military and navy, or their families, The Garrison District rings with the clamor of steel and rhythmic tromp of marching ranks. The barracks, armories and training grounds for the forces of Vorhal dominate the landscape here, their fortified walls and parapets soaring well above the rooftops of homes and businesses that spring up between them. With a heavy guard and military presence, The Garrison District sees little crime aside from the occasional drunken tavern brawl. Those who aren’t members of the military, or the family of a member, tend to be of militant or warrior races, where they feel right at home among the district’s fortifications and soldiers.

Businesses

With the heavy traffic of soldiers and sailors, much of the business appeal in The Garrison District centers on forges, fletchers and the like. The shops here offer a variety of goods and services, but seem to lend themselves more so to the interests of the military and navy members who pass through. Businesses in the Garrison District enjoy a healthy guard presence, and have little cause for concern of theft. As reasonably steady coin flows through the markets here, the shops are able to afford purchasing a few hundred gold worth of wares each month.
