The City of Lanterns
The Shadow Gate District
This large city district of Balefire stretches from the Shadow Gate in the east to nearly the Lantern Gate on the north end of the city between the Shadowalk and the city walls. This district is home to nearly all the dark elven population within the city and as such is resplendent in it’s beauty and wickedness. Tall stone houses and gated mansions make up the bulk of the district with a few small parks and squares seperating the estates. The homes of the most notable figures in the city lie here, including Milluefar apprentice of Xurothil the Overseer, the tiefling Zaleid Grandmaster of the Shadowcrafters Guiild, and all nine of the dark elven Syndics. Though the City Watch patrols the district regularly the private security forces of it’s inhabitants are the real rule here. Hellknight squads, sentinal Golems, and Fleshwarped guardians keep the wealthy denizens well protected.
