The Frozen City
Not precisely a district of Ptolus but close enough that most think of it as one, Sorrow is a shanty town born out of the refuge camp that formed around south gate. This once tent city is now filled with makeshift buildings and hold the lions share of Ptolus’ Orc and Goblin population, it’s also easily the cities poorest region.
Population: About 20,000
Primary Function: Residential
Primary Social Class: Lower/ Impoverished
The Flavor of Sorrow
Entering Sorrow through south gate is like stepping from one world to another, South markets paved streets and bustling trade cutting suddenly to the dirt and mud streets winding between close packed housings and leaning buildings. The people of Sorrow are a mix of the down trodden cast outs from the city and sample folk who are just making the best of their lot in life. Sorrow as the most starkly diverse population, green and black skin of orcs mixing in with human tones. Few if any elves or dwarves are found in this district but a player might spot a troll, ogre or even a hill giant if they keep and eye out. The average person on the street of this district are less likely to be friendly or helpful, most tend to keep to themselves.
The Church of Lothian has made Sorrow a bit of a mission, some of the nicest dressed on the streets here are likely to be the Sisterhood of Dayra.
