West Gate

West Gate


This is the most used passage into and out of the town, as dozens of travellers and traders pass through its archway each day. In days gone those entering the town were extensively questioned but now the guards, while ever present, are a little less authoritarian in their challenges. It does still have a pair of small cells to detain undesirables, and when on duty a small contingent of guards are stationed in the upper rooms.

This is the original west gate of New Elysium, but is now set just inside the gate of the fortified outer wall, which together form a secure courtyard. West Road, the main thoroughfare into town, runs eastward from this courtyard at the West Gate directly to Graffam Square.
