Guildhall Row


The Guildhalls of Oldtown stand here, where the river is wide and the light of the Hightower strong. The street is wide enough for several laden carts to pass at once, and well paved with large flagstones of a utilitarian grey granite.

The Halls themselves are heavy buildings, and most of them have an almost fortified look to them — thick walls and few windows, forboding and serious. They vary in size, and in the type of stone used, but most of them are larger than the manses of all but the very wealthy, and unlike the city's residences, they do not share walls with one another. Many of the Halls on the East side of the street have private docks on the Honeywine, complete with boathouses and small warehouses that put the businesses of individual small merchants to shame.
