Trollskull Alley


Trollskull Alley is a narrow passage that winds through the interior of the city block surrounded by closely constructed townhomes, many of which have been converted into businesses. The neighborhood is bounded on the North and South by Saerdoun Street and Delzorin Street and in the East and West by Whaelgond Way and Windborne Way, respectively. Two entrance points enter into the alley from Saerdoun Street and one from Delzorin Street. The alley itself runs parallel to Delzorin Street at its eastern end.

At the southeast end of the alley, closest to the intersection between Whaelgond Way and Delzorin Street, a removable metal grate opens into a surface shaft that led to the Waterdhavian sewer system.

During the daylight hours the alley is filled with an open-air marketplace full of temporary stalls selling produce, prepared food, and goods not otherwise found in the shops around Trollskull Alley.
