The Beth Bow district takes up the north central part of Ramsalon Much of the area used to be the main graveyard of the city, Death Row, but after the Darkest Night Razzine had most of the graveyard destroyed and developed, starting with the centerpieces of the district - the Park Of Hope and Kane Coliseum Since then apartment houses, tenement housing, and a number of businesses have grown around the centerpieces. There are still a few untouched areas which retain their dark past, such as a small section of old crypts and the Sinkhole, but these are under armed guard, and are not to be tampered with by the public.
This district is also considered the poorest section of the city as those that survived the destruction of Shanty Town were relocated to Beth Bow, creating clusters of very rough and derelict neighborhoods in the area. The edge along the river has also become a haven for smuggler and other criminal types as quick access and being right at the northern border of the city make for quick escapes.
Beth Bow is laid out in a block style of neighborhoods with the Park of Hope at the very center and everything else spreads from there. There are four main housing blocks: Housing North, Housing East, Housing South and Housing West. Various businesses, warehouses, and inns are scattered between the housing blocks and then along the border of the river.
Park Of Hope RP Chatroom - A large park that was built at the very center of Beth Bow to celebrate the transition of the former graveyard into someplace of hope and new beginnings. It isn't as lush as the Grand Park but it does have its own kind of beauty even despite some of the spill over of years of not being able to keep up with the needs of the city's displaced citizens.
New Beginnings - A halfway house and soup kitchen located in the east area of the Park of Hope. It offers a temporary shelter and means for residents to train and learn new skills to help get a new start.
Kane Coliseum RP Chatroom - Right at the south edge of the Park of Hope, acting as the border of the park and Housing South of Beth Bow is a grand Coliseum and one of the top wonders within the very city. It is the most spectacular structure in all of Beth Bow. Within the massive structure is the main tournament style arena which is surrounded by a few beautiful gardens and several rooms and hall ways that have several statues, murals and paintings showing the valor of Ramsalon's many great heros and warriors.
Victory Portal Courtyard - The portal known as Victory Portal which connects Ramsalon to GHOUL and Victory City was moved out of Kane Coliseum and into a larger courtyard to to handle the increased volume of heavy traffic flow of merchants and average travelers. It is right outside the northwest side of Kane Coliseum, and much of the area is covered offering protection against the weather and shade from the sun. The portal itself is up against a back wall that is very tall and thick. The path leading up to the portal is lined with murals and statues that used to be in the former portal room that depict important victories of the groups of armies that fought to defend Ramsalon during the Darknest Night and the following Orc War and those that would defeat Necromos Right above the portal is the largest mural and most beautifully detailed, is of the images of five Nargols leaning over, as if staring into the pool. There are also benches and spaces for people to stop and rest, with small trees and bushes providing some cozy backdrops. Vendors of all kinds can be found scattered about. The courtyard can be locked down with heavy gates containing the area should the portal ever be used against the city again.
Beth Bow Crypts RP Chatroom - what little remains of the grave yard Death Row of which Beth Bow was built over. Here crypts are built or maintained to house the ashes of the dead that remain to have the city be their final resting place. Though many citizens avoid them as during the Darkest Night many of the graves were used to provide fodder for Necromos' Undead army as he invaded and there is a bit of a dangerous sink hole that has claimed those a bit too adventurous.
Beth Bow Junkyard RP Chatroom - Tucked away on the east side of the district, a section of the district has become a junk yard as people needed a place to store scraps and junk turning it into a scavengers paradise.
Housing North RP Chatroom
Perhaps the most secure housing block in all the district thanks to the location of the Guard House and the near constant presence of the guards and soldiers that also take up residence in the block as well. The state of the housings is average at best, but are some of the better constructed long term housing developments in the district.
Crescent Moon Theatre RP Chatroom - An impressive structure only second to the Kane Coliseum that provides entertainment for the locals in a very comfortable venue. Every Friday there are shows put on that are free to the public.
Beth Bow Guardhouse - One of the main stations of operations for the Ramsalon Guard. Also the location of the jail.
Dry Bones RP Chatroom- The local watering hole - a hole in the wall pop-up of a bar tucked between two larger establishments. It's the sort of place where the bar runs along one wall, booths along the other and just enough room in the middle to walk to the bathrooms in the back. The drink selection comes in strong, stronger, and whiskey. The Bones doesn't bother with hiring bodyguards - the Guardhouse is just a few blocks over and the off-duty guards (if they're not drunk and starting the fight themselves) serve the purpose well enough as it is.
Try the ribs! The dry rub is delicious!
Housing East RP Chatroom
Located east of the Park of Hope, this block was one of the first Sets of housing developed to begin finding places to put the displaced citizens of the city from the events of the Darkest Night. Many of the buildings are hastily and shoddily built, almost no better than shacks, or crammed tightly together to get as many people a room as possible. Many warehouses also dot the block as housing that eventually becomes too derelict to be a residence are re-purposed.
Pero Derilias Gradeschool - A large school made for children of all ages. It is named after a man that has done more than the citizens know for Beth Bow, Pero Derilias. Standing in the forefront of the eastern housing blocks the Pero Derilias Grade School is the first of its kind in Ramsalon. A twenty-eight classroom building, things of all nature are taught here from math, languages, etiquette, history, and science, to the supernatural. The teaching staff knows what they are doing and the children of Beth Bow are getting wonderful educations.
Crawfang Tavern - One of the first taverns built during the development of Beth Bow. Blending in with the shoddy and slum like surroundings, it is a simple ale house with a very basic menu and cheap beer, but its location has proved useful for those that know what lurks beneath the surface.
River's Run RP Chatroom - Often known by a nick name, the bar is one of those where you need to know someone to find the place. Once you do find it, the place looks like it has seen better days, don't expect any food service and half the drinks taste like dish water was added. Despite its rough patrons, it has been able to remain low key providing a place to service certain needs.
Housing West RP Chatroom
To the west of the Park of Hope lay the west block of housing and was the second section to be developed. At the front of the block there is a large hospital. Much of the housing in this section is slightly better than that in the Housing East as more time and higher quality materials was used to build them, though shoddy shacks do line many of the streets as homes can not be built fast enough to home the displaced citizens.
Louise Vixan Hospital RP Chatroom - A beautiful hospital just west of the Park of Hope. A large four story structure, crafted of very sturdy, old timber the hospital itself is a marvel to behold. Magical and mechanical lifting and lowering platforms allow for easy access to all floors. The building itself is protected from all kinds of magical attack and is near impossible to burn down. The hospital is named to honor the healer whom is said to have saved many in the city from the black oil on the Darkest Night, and performed many a service for the people of Ramsalon in her lifetime.
Housing South RP Chatroom
To the south of the Park of Hope is the massive Kane Coliseum and then the southern block of housing. The houses in thise section are some of the best houses in Beth Bow, strategically placed to show anyone coming to the Coliseum that quality homes do exist in this place and that the displaced people truly are being treated like full citizens of Ramsalon once again. The houses are not overly lavish, but of very good quality and several middle scale businesses dot the block offering a near suburban feel to the one section compared to the rest of Beth Bow.
