Skellan's Enemy Within
The Palast District
Across the river from the Konigplatz, accessible via Karl Franz Bridge, lies the Palast District, the part of Altdorf surrounding the Imperial Palace. The Palast District is the heart of Imperial power, full of grand old structures in better repair than most of the rest of Altdorf. Noble manors crowd up against administrative buildings and barracks for Reiksguard and other soldiers. Knightly order chapter houses sit across well-kept squares from grand temples, and the few businesses, hostels, and markets that survive in the district
are firmly gold tier.
The Palast District is the most heavily patrolled and guarded area in the whole of the Empire, as the City Watch, Altdorf soldiers, and Reiksguard knights all make their presence felt. Crime – or at least, burglary, theft, and violence – is very low. Corruption and graft, on the other hand, is just as prevalent as elsewhere in the Empire, if rather more genteel and discreet.
