Strictly a residential area, the Rivergate District is as close to a “middle class” neighborhood as Ptolus gets. It is located on a rise of land, surrounded by cliffs on all sides except the northeast, where a steep slope mostly free of buildings and covered in trees rolls down to the North Market and the main North Gate. Its residential cul-de-sacs—called “burrows” by those who live here—each boasts its own unique architectural identity.
