Horcroft - District (Central)

Fort Stag - Once the base for the notorious bandit leader known as The Stag Lord - it has been liberated and now serves as the administrative centre and garrison for the city.

Atem's Smithy - Atem is a burly man with huge shoulder muscles who works stripped to the waist unless it is really in the middle of winter. He is a good smith and can make master work items, such as swords, shields and armour - although you need to order them in advance. His son's and apprentices carry out the day-to-day blacksmithing work, although Atem oversees them with an eagle eye, to make sure nothing brings shame to his smithy.

Pharasma's Shrine and The Graveyard - There is a small mortuary and remembrance chapel that is used for the preparation of corpses. Once the body has been properly prepared it can be carried over the short distance to the grave yard. When not in use for burials the Pharasmin Clerics work though various remembrance chants that include the names of some of those people buried in the grave yard. It is possible to buy special remembrance chants for your beloved, and depending on the amount paid, the Pharasmin's will remember them officially on a regular basis. Accommodation for the priest is located close to the shine - and it is also the place to come if you need an experienced midwife.

The Horcroft Granary - A series of large storage barns used to hold the city's supplies. Although it is called a Granary, it is used for all sorts of supplies such as Grain, vegetables and preserved foods. Stocks run down over the winter, but build up again through the summer. They say that the city could withstand a three month siege, even when its stocks are at their lowest - but that has never been tested.

Glynn’s Sword School - The first sword school in Newhaven, Glynn’s teaches the modern style of rapier based duelling as favoured by Lord Rudy.

As well as teaching the finer points of duelling, Glynn’s offers training in most weapons and armour types. It is the ideal place to send your children (or apprentices) if you want then to learn some military skills without signing up for an career in the army.

You cxan catch a ferry across the river here, or you can hire a small boat with a fisherman to row it. However, there is only room for two people (and the rower).
