Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
The Gibberish is the foreign district within the city. Most of the residents are foreigners who either cannot speak the language or speak the language so poorly it is difficult to understand them. The Kneel is at the northern most tip of this district.
The streets of Gibberish are a tangle like some drunken sailor tied around the The Serpentine River (Elweir City). Even more so than elsewhere in the city, the streets form a confusing maze of narrow paths and alleys. It’s almost as if people just built their homes, wine shops and smoke houses where they wished. Nearest the river are the wharves where ships from Abyzinia, Naraat, Khor and even more exotic places tie up; then along both banks come warehouses for storing goods and the offices of the Port Authority. Beyond this hustle and bustle of sailors, captains, porters, clerks and city assessors are the places that make the Gibberish so exotic.
Tucked between the flophouses and grog shops, almost as if their owners don’t want potential customers to find them, are strange places that sell imports from far-off lands – everything from narcotics to crude statuettes to maps of places that may or may not exist. Staffing these shops are foreigners who washed up in Elweir like driftwood, and each of them has a strange tale about how he/she came to the city.
