THE WARDS OF SIGIL
When you first arrive in Sight, it’s easy to become confused and disoriented. To the uninitiated, Sigil’ streets appear to be a chaotic- scramble laid out haphazardly, in every direction, with no apparent plan or purpose.
On the surface, this is true. But Sigil s citizens know that there are different parts to the city, and they know that those parts make sense. The city is divided into wards. and each ward’s name speaks to what you can expect to find in that section of the city.
Where one ward starts and another ends isn’t handled by official maps and property lines. You can
usually tell where you arc by the crowding of the buildings for lack thereof), by the general upkeep and ambience ofa neighborhood. and by the types of businesses found there. The poorer the ward, the more tightly packed and run-down the living conditions become.
Generally, everyone agrees that Sigil has six distinct wards, and these are spread out in a clockwise direction around the hollow ring. The six wards are The Lady’s Ward, the Market Ward, the Guildhall Ward, the Clerk’s Ward, the Lower Ward. and the Hive.
