Red Wall

The Red Wall area is a very diverse area, with a large elvish population, as well as humans and the cities sparse gnome and halfling population making their home here. Most of the elves came to the city two centuries ago, to study magic under the Council of Aarth. Since that time, the native form of elvish magic, sorcery, has come to be viewed with suspicion, some members of the Magic Council espousing the belief that it springs from demonic forces. Some elves have stayed in the city, to defend their practices but many have left to return to their forest homeland.

Most of Red Wall is planted thick with ancient Varwood trees that the frst elves to arrive planted 200 years ago. The buildings are a mix of styles, blending the organic shapes and curves that the elves favor with the more austere classical stone structures favored by the human residents and also the cozy underground dwellings of the Gnomes and Halflings.

The last few weeks a palpable sense of worry and suspicion has been growing in Red Wall, as a number of people have disappeared, their dwellings later found to be ransacked. Among the missing are several elves and Vera Hawk, a prominant human courtesan known to frequent the Silent Siren inn in South Bridge. Night Watchmen have reported no unusual activities, and have increased patrols in the area to try to catch the villains. There has been talk of several elvish sorcerers organizing a team of vigilantes to scour the neighborhood, which has started to get the attention of the Imperial Guard, which looks poorly on such things.
