Earthdawn - Who Really Kaers?
The birth rate of orks is high. The kaer Council once had strong regulations to control breeding, but the law was not enforced since the events of the Separation. The orks needed more space fast and – akin to the dwarven neighborhoods of Khar Rhuz – they connected their buildings before building upwards. Orks build for their own convenience and not for beauty, so the entire quarter looks chaotic and haphazard. Entire buildings have collapsed over time, but the orks are tirelessly rebuilding and expanding them.
This district is dubbed the Castel by the other Name-givers, because there is only one street left leading into the district. Near the end of this street, the Gate Tavern serves the dreaded beverage hurlg and is a favorite meeting place.
