HIGH DISTRICT
Home to both the royal palace and the council chambers, this is the most affluent area of Noria. Located on an island in the middle of the river Aire and accessible by two bridges, the High District is easily defensible. It is also possible to hire boats to take you to the district from several parts of the city. A few high end merchants operate in this district, their goods usually fetching higher prices. A handful of inns and taverns can be found here, though with higher standards than most such establishments. A contingent of guards is always on hand, on either bridge, ready to leap into action if needed.

TEMPLE QUARTER
The Temple Quarter is found on the eastern back of the Aire and contains the majority of the places of worship within the city. It also contains a number of living quarters for priests and certain noble families. A high stone wall separates it from the Noble district, which lies further East. No taverns or shops are found here, though there are many public gardens and plazas.

NOBLE DISTRICT
Found between the outer and inner walls of the eastern side of Noria, the Noble district is almost as palatial as the High District; home to the wealthiest citizens and many noble houses from across Giralda. Wide avenues and plazas dot the district, as well as a smattering of high class merchants and inns.

OUTER QUARTER
Beyond the city walls of eastern Noria lies the Outer Quarter, home to the city’s growing middle class. The houses here are smaller than what is seen in the Noble District but are well kept and maintained. Inns and taverns are more common and a wooden wall separates the Outer Quarter from the farmland beyond.

GARRISON
The Garrison lies directly west of the High District and serves as a base for Noria’s guards as well as Girlada’s military command. There is little here for the average citizen, with the district being mostly full of housing for soldiers and their families. High stone ramparts separate the Garrison from the rest of the city.

UNIVERSITY DISTRICT
Adjacent to the Garrison is the University district, home to the many centers of learning in the city. This small district offers housing to those who come to study here, as well as a few wealthy merchants who can afford to live in the opulent surroundings.

MERCHANT QUARTER
This bustling district is home to the vast majority of the city’s merchants and traders in addition to thousands of travelling salesmen and women. A hive of activity, this area is full of life around the clock. It is also heavily patrolled day and night ny the city guard. Dozens of inns can be found here, usually full of merchants looking to trade and share news.

DOCKS
Like Docks in any major city, this section of Noria is a little rough and reedy. Teamsters haul goods off ships for transport to the merchant quarter and sailors seek to blow off some steam in the many, many taverns found in this area. Warehouses stacked with goods are also common, and ships are often seen coming and going from the busy jetties.

BOWERY
The closest thing Noria has to slums or a shantytown. The streets weave around the buildings and tents in a labyrinthine fashion, making it easy to get lost if you don't know the way. While the city is more affluent than most, there are still those who cannot afford to stay in the city proper. The Bowery, sprawling out from the western half of Noria, is where they can be found. The houses are small and a little ramshackle but remarkably well-kept by their occupants.

Noria (pronounced nor-eye-uh) is the gargantuan capital city of Giralda located in the heart of the continent. The original city was quite small (what is now considered a single district), built atop the remains of an Elven city in the early 4th Age to act as a symbol of the unification of the major realms. The city has since grown exponentially into numerous districts, supporting a population of nearly 30 million people.
