Pathfinder Chronicles: Heroes of the Mists
Green Ridge is one of the smaller, quieter communities in Absalom. It is lightly populated and heavily plant-laden, with many small parks, extensive gardens, open-earth squares, and numerous copses of trees scattered throughout the district. There are even numerous small farms, holdovers from the many sieges the city has suffered when growing food seemed a viable use of space. The pace of life is slower in Green Ridge, and the relentless pursuit of money or political advantage much rarer. Indeed, natives from other sections of the city often refer to anyone seen as lazy or unambitious as a “ridger”. This rarely bothers residents of Green Ridge, who are much more interested in seeking harmony with their neighbors and the Isle of Kortos itself than aquiring material wealth and power.
