The Glory of Bastige
The Towers Quarter
Located in northern Bastige, the Towers Quarter is Bastige’s wealthiest and most prestigious district. Populated by nobility, well connected merchants and Bastige’s most powerful arcanists, the Towers gets it’s name from the myriad of high rises, keeps and spires that gives northern Bastige such a unique skyline. While many who live in the quarter claim that the towers are monuments to the glory and power of Bastige, others claim they’re just another status symbol for the city’s egotistical elite.
