Lowtown is where you will find the poor that can actually find some work. Many Ferelden refugees have ended up here, living in barely-together hovels. The lower end markets are set up here. Most of the city’s industries make their home in Lowtown.
The city beneath the city. The slums here are even worse than those of Lowtown, and the most impoverished people -- elves, dwarves, and humans alike -- cohabitate here. Any merchants you find are likely trading in stolen or illegal goods.
During the time of the Imperium, the Gallows was the slave market and prison. After Orlais invaded, reclaiming the city from a Qunari invasion, it was turned into the local Circle of Magi. It is a bleak location, and those who visit are left with an uneasy feeling.
Kirkwall has a long and bloody history. Also known as the City of Chains, it was once the center of slave trade when the Imperium still ruled over much of Thedas. It has been fought over by the Qunari, the Imperium and the Orlesians, whose collective influence still shows strongly there today. It is ruled by Viscount Dumar, but some say the real power in Kirkwall is Knight-Commander Meredith Stannard. Many Fereldens ported here, but few have risen above poverty during their stay. Ferelden born Joscelyn Hawke has broken this trend, and is considered a rising power in Kirkwall.
