  • The City of Vendici

    Vendici is the former capital of a "now-collapsed continent-spanning empire":https://stilettiofvendici.obsidianportal.com/wiki_pages/vendician-history, a heaving metropolis with no single ruler, no single law, and – at least according to some – not one …

  • The Bridges

    The glittering heart of Vendici, the Bridges is the oldest part of the city. Over the years it has played host to barracks, tanneries, brothels, slave pens, and all manner of distasteful establishments. Now, however, the Bridges is the undisputed home of …

  • The Palazzo

    A tiny enclave in "the Bridges":https://stilettiofvendici.obsidianportal.com/wiki_pages/the-bridges, The Palazzo is the old imperial palace complex. Today it includes the Senate, St. Peter's Basilica, and the offices of remnant imperial civil authorities, …

  • Three Spires

    Safely upper-class, the sprawling gardens and manicured parks of Three Spires are broken only by the low blocks of white-walled, terracotta-roofed mansions. Those same mansions are nowhere near as large as the sprawling manses Vendici’s elite maintain in …

  • The Arsenale

    The Vendician Arsenale was once the home of the Imperial Fleets – now, it stands near abandoned, its huge blank-faced walls encircling only the slum of Ropetown and the Castello, currently the barracks of the Red Wing Mercenary Company. [[File:607119 …

  • Ropetown

    The stinking slum of Ropetown has been largely ignored by Vendici at large since the abandonment of the Arsenale nearly a century ago. Since then only the very poorest and most hopeless of the city’s inhabitants have taken up residence in the upturned …

  • St. Lucia

    St. Lucia is a small middle-class quarter, centred around a pair of marketplaces. Many of its residents work in the mansions of Three Spires to the west, or the Caravanserraglio a short distance south. [[File:607113 | class=media-item-align-right | …

  • The Artists' Quarter

    A veritable hive of urban poverty, the Artists’ Quarter is bounded by the Carbone Gardens to the east, the Docks to the northwest, and the Temple District to the south and west. The inhabitants of this densely-packed region work mostly as cheap labour in …

  • The Temple District

    The eastern centre of commerce in Vendici – balanced in the south-west of the city by the Caravanserraglio – the sprawling Temple district is home to the counting houses, offices, and warehouses of the city’s powerful Guilds and Banking Clans. The three …

  • The Temple Barrows

    A small quarter occupying a spit of land between a major waterway and one of the Temple District’s larger canal basins, the Temple Barrows is the site of the Old Imperial elven ghetto. Today it is a stronghold of traditional elven culture, and many of the …

  • The Carbone Gardens

    The Carbone Gardens, sprawling between the Northern Docks and the Temple District in the east of Vendici, are a landscaped playground of the upper classes. Dotted with copses, crouquet lawns, gazebos, and ponds, the Gardens are encircled by a high stone …

  • Redrun

    An immense quarter in the east of Vendici, Redrun – named for the muddy colour of its waterways – could easily pass for a complete town in much of the world. It encompasses areas both rich and poor, commercial and domestic, religious and vulgar. [[File …

  • La Montagna di san Pietro ('The Montagna')

    Barely part of Vendici, the Montagna is a both a district and an island. Thrusting out of the sea some distance north of the city proper, the stone ridge it topped by a church to its eponymous saint, a pilgrimage site of some note in the Lowlands. At the …

  • The Flats

    In marked contrast to the luxury of Three Spires to their east, the hovels of the Flats perch on flimsy driftwood stilts above sands banks. Largely fishermen and seaweed gatherers, the people of the Flats are close-minded, clannish, and poor. Many a …

  • The Lilac Quarter

    The Lilac Quarter is perhaps not the very poorest of Vendici's many slums, but it is certainly the most crime-ridden. A blighted shanty town of timber shacks and stinking canals - which are more likely to contain bodies than barges - few gainfully …

  • The Docks

    A truly maritime city, surrounded on three sides by a lagoon, Vendici has no shortage of docks. Still, three major waterfronts serve the city's ever-growing demand for food, raw materials, and trade goods. [[File:607107 | class=media-item-align-right …
