The Cliffside ward makes up the lower edge of Dura,
built on and into the cliffs that drop toward the river.
This waterfront district, full of businesses that cater to
the sailors who pass through Sharn’s port, can be a rough
and tumble place. Legitimate services can be found
here—ships need supplies and repairs, goods need to be
stored, captains need a place to hire a crew, and sailors
need a bed on dry land to sleep in once in a while—but
other businesses spring up simply to meet demand.
These less-than legitimate services include bordellos,
taverns, casinos, and even shadier entertainments for
sailors to spend their off-dutyhoursandwageson.The
City Watch finds it hard to keep order here (or perhaps
the Watch captains simply find it hard to care), and
Cliffside is one of the most crime-ridden wards in all
of Sharn. Some say the problem is exacerbated by the
presence of sahuagin in the ward, who sell their services
as guides through the Straits of Shargon.
