The Rafters

The Rafters


As the twisted streets of The Windway snaked themselves into a corner and ran out of room to expand, the poorer families who flocked to The City of Vorhal started building upwards, instead of out. Boxed in by existing streets and structures, residents who could no longer find a place to live added on third, fourth, or even fifth stories to their already rickety buildings. With so many people soon living right on top of one another, the streets below grew crowded and foul. Ramshackled bridges and catwalks were perched precariously between the looming patchwork structures in an attempt to more easily get around. Eventually these sections of The Windway began to be called The Rafters, after their spanning skyways, and soon enough the vertical slums were considered to be their own district entirely. Notorious for its violent street gangs and rampant Sannish usage, The Rafters is a place that most citizens avoid if at all possible.

With the limited space and even more limited coin in The Rafters, businesses are few and far between, and tend to stock only necessities and little else. The shops here manage to sell only sparse wares, as most residents only resort to spending their meager coin in dire need. Businesses in The Windway almost never see the guard patrol their streets, and are frequently targets of theft or vandalism. With the shops here struggling on a daily basis, they can rarely afford to purchase even the cheapest of wares each month.
