Prominent Cities, Towns, and Villages 4

Şibot is a dichotomy of rich and poor. The Grey Mountain River splits the town in half. The Northeastern half is composed of gold merchants, and the wealthy gentry. It enjoys beautiful field stone and mortar homes, fountains, and cobblestone streets. While the southwestern half is composed of almost a shanty town of plank board buildings. This is where the men and their family who work the mines live. Not to mention the prospectors hoping to hit it rich and move across the river. Unfortunately it also serves as a breeding ground for criminals. Not that all people from southwest Şibot are criminals. But its reputation precedes it.
