Punjar: The Tarnished Jewel
The New City and Northside
The newest additions to the city of Punjar, both the New City and Northside were added in the last century in an effort to accommodate Punjar’s burgeoning population. The folk of both wards are largely accomplished crafts folk and merchants, lending the wards a higher class of citizenry than their neighbors to the south.
Of all of Punjar, the wards of New City and Northside can be seen as the most stable. While none would deny the Thieves Guild’s presence, few citizens openly flaunt their allegiance to the rogues. Protection rackets here are quiet affairs, and some brave merchants even take it upon themselves to make a stand against the Thieves’ hegemony, as examples to their fellows. In the past, these renegades would have been quashed by the Guild, but as the rising merchant class builds up more wealth (and power), the Rule of Thieves comes increasingly into question.
