Formerly called the Old City, Gaslamp Avenue (Recently named after the new gnomish invention that graces every corner) is home to Scuttlepeg’s VERY succesful working class. Mostly made of finely maintaned townhouses; Gaslamp Avenue is home to many businesses and numerous amusements for the members of the well-to-do and the citizens of the wealhtier districts. Gaslamp is where the smartest and most fashion conscious members of the city frolic, flirt, learn and shop.
Gaslamp is a tightly packed district, and is busy at all times of day. Newcomers have a difficult time learning which area is residential and which is commercial. Each are composed of houses, with small and tasteful signs on the later. Gaslamp was formerly the home of the average citizen, but since the invention of Magical engineering, ariships, and gunpowder, the professional class quickly moved in. They pushed out their poorer neighbors, and regentrified the district. Wise citizens learn to quickly tell this area apart from the Blusters, the slightly poorer area to the south. Animosity still runs rampant in the area.
Except for the ocassional accident escaping the Gnomish Ghetto or magical schools in the area; this is a safe district.
- Wiggleworks: The personal factory and lab of Alphonso Wigglewrak (just beside the entrance of the Gnomish Ghetto), the Wiggleworks is a one of the most successful enterprises in the city. The building is open 24 hours a day, and is desperately trying to keep up with the cities demand for airships and guns. The Gnomes there are quickly growing haughty, the wealthy freqently wine and dine them to have their orders put to the front of the line. Guards are always posted; to deter theives and the spies of rival Gnome clans. Wigglewrak’s decision to build his shop outside the Gnomish ghetto isn’t making him very popular with his race.
- Civic Opera House: Alphonso Wigglewrak’s most recent contribution to the city; the Opera house is almost finished being built. There is always a few people gawking at the mammoth structure during the day; wondering exactly what “musical theater” is. Orcish acting troupes are also performing the area; looking to see if the Opera has room for their art.
- The Golden Thimble: The finest bar in the city, the Golden Thimble is where the sophisticated business man wheels and deals. It stocks a wide selection of Gnomish Worts now-a-days. It also is where the cities’ best escorts ply their trade.
