CotMA: Castle of the Mad Archmage
A cramped section of the Old City, Shade is a twisting maze of narrow lanes and blind alleys. the entire district is controlled by the various gangs that make up the Syndicate. The tenements here are tall, casting the streets below in shadow save for a few scant hours in the middle of the day. While Shade is the heart of the criminal underworld, the guild masters are thought to dwell elsewhere. There is an extensive network of underground passages, allowing unseen movement to other parts of the city.
