Home to the most elite of the elite; the towers of Skycutter plaza rise as high as the power of those who live there, and the aspirations of anyone who wants to. Skycutter Plaza is a large central square in the Upper district and is the Government center of the city. The Government buildings rest in the center, and the towers surround it like guard posts.
Each tower houses the offices and living quarters of the best class in Scuttlepeg, and each is invariable marked by each family’s style, heraldry, and regalia. They are constantly being remodeled and updated by a fleet of Dwarven craftsmen and Goblin laborers, and wiser citizens walk looking up; wary of falling tools and debris. During the day, the streets are packed by servants and government workers; with the occasional revenue trailing behind the rich and famous.
The district is made up of a fair mix of the races, and houses Dwarven bankers and businessmen, Gnomish Inventors, Human Elite, and Half-Elves who wish to avoid living with their full-blodded bretheren in the Ivory Forest.
The district is very safe, and is home to each towers’ guard company (usually on the ground floor), and nightly army patrols.
- St. Croix Tower: Home of the most powerful and influential human family; the St. Croiz tower rises above its neighbors. It bustles with gainful activity in the day, and the sound of the St. Croix children’s (All famous and wealthy socialites) parties waft in the air around the building. It is one of the most heavily guarded towers in the area, and houses its own airship port.
- Senate Hall: This is the spoke that turns the wheels of government in the city. It is a stately structure of somber columns and statues of the cities heros.
- Darktusk Manor: Home of High Councilman Darktusk, this is the traditional mansion of whomever wins the Tournament of Kings. It is stocked with a large contingent of clerks and servants, and is one of the few areas where flora still grows. The area between the tower and its walls is verdant and lush; containing an orchard and a pond of freshwater. Currently the tower is rather frayed and dismal; Darktusk has no need for servants and is busy with his work.
