South of Spices street, this Dock Ward district is built on stilted platforms and boardwalks over top the flooded beach. The ground is sour, with flooded beaches and salty mud flats, and it stinks of fish and brine and salt. You can see crabs and breeding insects through the gaps in the boards. The high tides flood the neighborhood, leaving the boardwalks wet and slimy with seaweed.

The Sleeping Snake
Tavern, brothel.
This rowdy tavern is roughly furnished in poorly mended furniture as the dockhands who drink here are prone to violence. Mercenaries can be hired here if you can do any business amid the howls and hoots that ring out as women dance on the tables. The joke goes that any snake able to sleep through all this must be very, very dead. Members of the Black Boar Tribe can usually be found drinking here. Located on the corner of Dock Street and Fishgut Alley.
