This Old Town neighborhood is named after the foreigners who live here known as the Woodsmen. When the Woodsmen came to Aurim seeking shelter, the Oracles gave them the land from which the stone for the Upper Districts had been quarried. As such, locals refer to this area as “the Hole” after the unfilled quarry.
The Woodsmen have constructed homes which cling to the quarry walls. A guard checkpoint at the only exit from the Quarter monitors traffic in and out, checking for proper paperwork and assigning guard escorts to Woodsmen who leave for other parts of the city.
