Terrain: City
Type: Tower

Dura used to be the beating heart of Sharn, but as the city grew taller, it has left the ward behind. It has now mostly fallen into squalor, and while this portion is still an important business district, its glory days are long past. The districts are separated vertically as well, with the ground level (actually on a 200 foot cliff overlooking the Dagger River to the west)being Precarious, the Warehouse District. Above Precarious is Underlook, a run-down inn district with several establishments in the towers. The highest levels are Overlook, a low-income residential district. Many of the buildings feature constant major image projectors that play looping advertisements of the Dragonmarked Houses. 

All of these districts are tied together by the ir’Tain Central Tower, which houses vast warehouses on its lower levels, three inns (one of which is defunct) in the Underlook levels, and four residential tenements on the highest levels. ir’Tain Central is 1175 feet tall, and most of the other buildings are connected to it via skybridges at different heights. 

House Ghallanda holds the only establishment that still retains its grandeur from the old days: Ghallanda Hall, on the highest level of Underlook. 

Status: Mostly complete, but some skybridges need connections. Some towers may be moved. City exits at Precarious level will be added as well.
