Hoard of the Dragon Queen
Baldur’s Gate is a bustling center of trade, with goods coming from North and South by wagon along the Tradw Way and by ship on the Sea of Swords, and from the East along the rivers. It is situated on a prominent bluff next to the river, overlooking an excellent natural harbour. It is divided into three districts: the Upper City where the richest and most influential citizens live and where the city’s largest marketplace (The Wide) is located. The Lower City surrounds the harbour and is where most of the city’s merchants live and conduct business. Th Outer City lies outside the walls and is where most of the city’s labourers reside in conditions that vary from crowded but clean to squalid.
