Sharn is a massive fantasy metropolis. The largest and most diverse city in all of Khorvaire , Sharn is anything but boring. It is a maze of towers that reach hundreds upon hundreds of feet into the air, with people, skycoaches, gargoyles and all manner of things milling about. Here you'll find a few maps to get you oriented, a district by district look at the city, as well as a few informative essays on the city. In each district it there is an overview of the district, the important figures and places within, and any other useful knowledge.

Getting About

The towers and districts of Sharn are divided up 3 ways. First there are the major tower groups known as Quarters, such as the Central Plateau or Dura. An overview of that is in this **Overview Map** . These are divided vertically into Upper, Middle and Lower Divisions. Like in this **Vertical City Map**, with those being called Wards. Within those are the smaller districts.
So for example; Tradefair district is in the Middle Central Plateau Ward of the Central Plateau Quarter and Malleon's Gate District is within the lower Dura ward of the Dura Quarter. Skyway is another story, it floats above Sharn just in the clouds.
This all comes into play when trying to get around as it does take a little bit of local knowhow to get around, and get around quickly. Travel times around Sharn are here.
