Hull Ward is the oldest neighborhood in Aventine. The first city walls were built using stone quarried in Dirion, far up the Ibril. Once the stones arrived, the workers used the upturned hulls of the great river barges to build their homes. Soon, shops and taverns sprang up around them, and Hull Ward was born.

At each end of the room, a stone hearth blazes warmly. A low, thin haze of pipe smoke fills the air. That’s normal enough.
