The Pixie Ghetto
The Pixie ghetto is where almost all the Pixies of Scuttlepeg live and play. It bustles with activity at all hours of the night, and is always filled with fun and laughter. Despite their servitude; the Pixies enjoy one of the safest and cleanest areas of the city.
The Ghetto is really only a few blocks in diameter, and visitors learn quickly to watch their step; since an errant foot could crush some of the residences. Other Pixes built their homes on the wires that crisscross the roofs of the neighboring areas, and live in small houses suspended from them. (They are very similar to Wren houses, and multiple families live in each one.) The district also has one of they few sources of pure water in the Lowers. The area is very apolitical, and merchants are learning to avoid the area, since the Pixies have no concept of money or what constitutes a safe practical joke.
Oddly to the other people of the city, the Senate does its best to avoid doing anything that affects the Pixies or interferes with their area of the city. Anyone caught trying to do harm to one outside the district is severely punished.
For anyone lucky enough to visit the district, the Pixies prove to be fun and entertaining hosts, and its the only place a citizen can enjoy one of their rarest treats: Honey. Many of the more enterprising members of the elite are trying desperately to get the Pixie bee herders to mass produce, but they are not getting much luck.
- Gobstomp’s: The one and only bar in the Ghetto; Gobstomp’s is owned by Chugs, one of the greatest Pixie adventurers ever known. Chugs received the inn (a heavily revamped doll house) after he rescued a wealthy man’s son from a malfunctioning Gondola in the commons. It gets its name from the Hobgoblin statue that is frozen above it; with its foot just on the roof. Rumor has it that its one of Chug’s creditors; who made the mistake of pursuing his money too far. It is famous for its tiny tea cakes and its roasted beetle.
- The Honeypot: The Honeypot is one of the largest structures in the Ghetto, and is a massive living complex for the pixies. Its is a series of tiny homes built on top of each other, and they eventually formed a squat tower.
- Dumbfuddle Park: Dumbfuddle is a small park just between the Ghetto and Scabpick alley. Its is immaculately kept by the Pixies, and is home to small shanty town of crazed elderly beggars. For some reason, the Pixies do everything in their power to ensure they are safe, warm, and well fed.
