The Marches serves as the entrance to Magnimar for most of the land bound traders who enter the city. The Castlegate is the first sight many traders see when approaching Magnimar and is one of only four gates which penetrate the city wall and is almost as large as the Twins' Gate in the Grand Arch district. The Marches is south of central Keystone, west of Lowcleft and east of the wealthier Silver Shore district. The Marches is home to many content but not particularly wealthy folk, lower class shop owners and less skilled craftsmen. The Marches, thanks to it location next to Castlegate, is quite a busy district bustling with traders but it is given no extra funding for security and as such is filled with Sczarni gangs and other such thieves and conmen. Luckily the local churches of Iomedae, Erastil and Abadar all provide man power that helps keep the district safe, or at least safer than it would be.
