Dragon Age - The Wandering Blades
The Dregs is a working-class neighborhood of servants and laborers in Denerim’s Poor Quarter, located west of the Market District and north of the River Drakon. Its streets are flat and flood when it rains.
The Dregs is safer than some Poor Quarter neighborhoods because the locals do their best to keep out criminals and riff-raff, to keep their children and their homes safe. In this regard, the Dregs has much in common with the Elven Alienage: Its residents know and look out for each other as long as they can do so without putting themselves in danger. Even so, it isn’t uncommon for locals to make a point of traveling in groups after dark for safety’s sake, or for outsiders passing through to hire armed escorts.
