The City of the Eternal Siege
Even before the siege, The Skids were rife with poverty. Today, some streets in the area are downright dangerous. Gangs of vagrants have been known to attack and rob people who accidently wandered into the wrong alleyway. Even in the “safer” portions long bread lines and beggars are visible on every corner.
Their dwellings are mostly overcrowded ramshackle huts or long-abandoned shops.
The people living in the Skids are mostly unemployed, underfed, downtrodden, and most dangerously – occasionally restless.
