Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
Tyr’s Noble District is divide in two by the Caravan District. The stylish, spacious stone residences of the Noble District serve as a reminder of what most commoners will never possess – a family name associated with a history of wealth and influence. Merchant prices, templars, ranking administrators, and nobles who maintain villas inside the city-state enjoy various degrees of lavish quarters. Their residences are tall and airy, usually three stories or more in height. Most homes have quarters for servants, private courtyards, and gardens.
The districts shops are more sophisticated than those found elsewhere in Tyr. Herbalists shops spice up their offerings of medicinal herbs and exotic oils with flue and sitar music. Vendors of colorful silks, glassblowers, and perfumeries display their wares in fancy arrangements outside their storefronts, enticing passersby to linger. Essentially, these shops exist to separate nobles from their excess coins.
