Brief description
Neuburg is a frontier town, capital of Nordmark south-east from the Misty Lake. It's the biggest settlement in Nordmark. Built around 150 years ago by Horst von Goethe, great-grandfather of  the current margrave, as a castle protecting new settlers from Groe Reich. Now thanks to rich local resources the town trade flourishes, buing and selling iron ore, gold, charcoal from local settlers and cattle from halflings of  Halfling Hills. Despite its economical prosperity it's a place for all kinds of outlaws, thieves and other scoundrels, who more or less co-rule the town with the legitimate authorities.

Castle Ring District
It's the wealthiest district in all Neuburg. Here lives nobility, the wealthiest burghers and tradesmen. All buildings are made of stone and brick and have at least two floors, but mostly three of them.

Trade District
It's second in wealth district. Full of small shops, warehouses and craftemens' workshops. It's architecture is very mixed, some buildings are three floor brick-made, some are merely piles of raw wooden logs. It's always loud around here since its market is hold all the time and tradesmen advertise their goods well into the late afternoon.

Lowburg District
The town slums are called Lowburg since it's palced outside main ring of city walls. Its buidlings are mere piles of wooden logs. Its strees are covered in piles of trash and excrements, so terrible stench is all over the place. Here lives the lumpen-proletaryat of Neuburg, beggars, thevies and all kinds of criminals. Here exist most of the most  taverns and bordellos of Nordmark where everything can be acquired but for a certain price.

Dwarven District
It's Small district, distinctive for its only dwarven inhabitants, and buildings of masterclass dwarven stonemasonry. Most of the buildings have one floor overground and two or more underground. Most of the buildings are connected by underground tunnels and cellars.

Halfling District
Halfling District is the smallest district of Neuburg. It's roughtly dozen of buildings. Most of them are build of stone and have three or even four floors.
