The Overhead Road

The buildings of Lowtown are set wall-to-wall with their roofs running one into the other, and many of the streets are narrow, usually only six feet across. These roofs form the Overhead Rod, and person familiar with it can travel from one side of Lowtown to the other without setting foot on the street below. He knows which roofs sag and are about to break, which roofs lead to a gap too wide to cross over, which roofs stand higher than neighboring roofs, and vice versa. The only place he can’t reach is the other side of the river – for that, he must resort to The Underfoot Path.
