Pathfinder Chronicles: Heroes of the Mists
Westgate is a mostly residential region of Absalom, where mid-tier merchants, common shop owners, and independent contractors live and sometimes work. A few businesses, mostly specialty labor, are mixed in together with Westgate’s townhouses and flathouses. The farther west in the district you go, the fewer shops exist, and the more villas and manors are in evidence. Though the wealthiest of the city’s residents generally settle in the Ivy District or Merchants’ Quarter, many of its oldest clans have kept their family manors in Westgate, in some cases having lived on the same blocks for more than a thousand years. This is a source of pride for Westgate residents, who often see themselves as keeper’s of Absalom’s traditions, and through them the city’s identity.
