Sharn: The Cauldron
- Upper Central Plateau
- Lyrander Tower (Technically in Central Plateau)
- Middle Central Plateau
- Lower Central Plateau
Central Plateau is the heart of Sharn. Its top levels include the seat of the city’s government and its bustling finance districts. Its middle levels host the enclaves of the dragonmarked houses (which some describe as the real government of the city) and embassies of the other nations of Khorvaire. Its location makes its residential neighborhoods highly desirable and its marketplace perhaps the busiest in the city.
Watch Detail: 504 guards of the Watch: 152 on the day shift (122 patrol, 30 stationed), 176 on evening shift (141 patrol, 35 stationed), 176 on night shift (141 patrol, 35 stationed). These guards are responsible for Northedge as well as the Central Plateau.
A long wall rings the Central Plateau at its lowest level, interrupted by towers along its entire length. Inside the wall, structures rise higher and higher toward the tallest towers near the middle, creating a great artificial mountain at the heart of the city. Mostly populated by the upper and middle classes, the Central Plateau houses the seat of the city’s government, its wealthiest citizens, and its finest businesses. Embassies from other nations, important representatives of the dragonmarked houses, and banks are found here as well.
