 ====City Layout & Location==== ====City Layout & Location====
  
-Northface is a city built in the side of and on the top of a set of cliffs in the northern region of Ageron above the Pagh river. The cliffs in which Northface resides are simply known as the Northern Cliffs. The northern region of Ageron is filled with hilly plains in the south and swampy marshes in the north. The northern cliffs run along the northwestern coast of the continent, until they meet with the Pagh mountains. There are a myriad of tunnels and natural caves within the Northern Cliffs. Northface settlers used these caves to start building their city. Much of the city is carved out of the very rock face of the cliffs. ​+Northface is a city built in the side of and on the top of a set of cliffs in the northern region of Ageron above the Pagh river.

 Alcaster has one large university, with three main schools of learning within. The campus for the university lies to the south of the residential parts of Alcaster. The residential portion of this section lies at the very end of the Northern Cliffs. This is a popular summering location for the wealthy of Ageron, as the views from the top of the cliffs are fantastic during the less stormy summers. ​ Alcaster has one large university, with three main schools of learning within.

 +Outside of Alcaster is another small city. This city was teleported here by the actions of adventurers. The Univeristy is currently studying the origins of the city and where it fits in the history of Northface.

Line 24: Line 26:
 The last section of the city is colloquially known as the Pox Burg. When the city was founded, it was originally known as Arcold. The Pox Burg sits below Alderburn, and reaches to  the bottom of the cliffs into the swamps below. This section contains the vast majority of the chronically ill, destitute, or insane people in the city. Within the Burg are a multitude of substandard hospitals, asylums, and orphanages. Disease and rot run rampant in this section, in part due to poor living conditions and in part due to the swamps at the base of the cliffs. The last section of the city is colloquially known as the Pox Burg.

-Northface only settled in a small portion of the tunnels and caves permeating throughout the Northern Cliffs. Many of the larger tunnels and caverns past the city have been explored and mapped out; however, there are innumerable smaller tunnels that have yet to be explored. ​ +Northface only settled in a small portion of the tunnels and caves permeating throughout the Northern Cliffs. Many of the larger tunnels and caverns past the city have been explored and mapped out; however, there are innumerable smaller tunnels that have yet to be explored. ​Beneath the Pox Burg is a labyrinthine network of tunnels and caverns. None of these tunnels have been mapped, as the rooms and tunnels of this maze seem to shift and change as people move through them. The city officials make it widely known that exploring these tunnels is extremely dangerous, as strange dangerous creatures have been seen wandering the tunnels. The creatures within the maze, the maddening layout of the maze, and the strange magical presence coming from somewhere within the maze all combine to make this location extremely deadly. ​
 ====Culture==== ====Culture====
 Northface, in general, is a very prideful city. Many of the inhabitants prefer to rely wholly on their own infrastructure to support the city. This often leads to shortages, especially during the winter months. Due to these relatively common shortages, much of the lower class in Northface is unhappy with the large difference in classes between levels. The lower a person travels in this city, the more disgruntled the citizens seem. Several revolts and revolutions have been attempted in the past, but most have failed, due to one reason or another. ​ Northface, in general, is a very prideful city.
