Government and Ruling Families

City Districts

By convention and by local law Flotsam is divided to many different districts made distinct by the class of person able to live with the district. These districts are divided from one another by either the Estar RIver or by walls which split the city and that only city guardsmen and certain nobles are permitted the enter or to climb. Standards for law and order and for general upkeep vary with the wealth and statues of the district. Finding oneself in the wrong part of town can end with a hapless person being killed for trespassing on a nobles city home in the Upper Class District or for the penitence coins in their pockets in the Poor District.
