New Sheoth is generally recognized as the jewel of the Shivering Isles, the culinary and cultural epicenter of the entire realm. It accentuates this fact with its distinctive greenery and landscaping.
Founded by pure whim of Lord Sheogorath, the city is a model of the Madgod's own perfectly envisioned epicenter and city.
Atmosphere[edit | edit source]
First time visitors to New Sheoth are often impressed by the warmth, generosity, and general good humor of its residents. Visitors are welcomed with open arms, and generally made to feel as if they are part of the large New Sheoth family. The sheer scope of the sights and sounds in the city can be daunting to the new visitor.
Districts[edit | edit source]
Visitors will find the city is divided into three main sections: Bliss, Crucible, and the Palace. Bliss and Crucible house the majority of residential and commercial buildings in the city, while the Palace area houses the magnificent Palace of Sheogorath, as well as the residences of the reigning dukes of Mania and Dementia.
Though located in the same city, it will soon be found that Bliss and Crucible offer distinct experiences. The shining parapets and golden roads of Bliss stand in stark contrast to the rustic buildings and unpaved streets of Crucible.
Travelers interested in a bustling nightlife and fine cuisine might prefer time spent in Bliss, renowned for its extravagant galas and spirited affairs. Visitors who seek a quieter experience would do well to spend their time exploring Crucible, where Dark Seducer patrols encourage a more serene way of life. No matter the taste, New Sheoth promises an experience like no other.
Arriving in New Sheoth[edit | edit source]
Travelers in New Sheoth will arrive at its gate from either the highlands of Mania or the swampy lowlands of Dementia. Many make the mistake of hurrying directly to the gates of the city without exploring the beautiful and majestic countryside outside the city walls. This is certainly a mistake, as the forests and glades of the Shivering Isles are unlike those found anywhere else in all the realms.
Accommodations[edit | edit source]
This is a list of all of the accommodations in New Sheoth.
Expensive[edit | edit source]
- The Choosy Beggar, Bliss
Raven Biter and his wife, Sheer Meedish run a fine restaurant and inn in the Bliss district of New Sheoth. The rooms are nicely appointed, and the food is above average for the area. Its wine is highly recommended, it is some of the best in the city. Many travelers find lunch to be an especially good time to visit the Choosy Beggar. Though the prices are no lower, the earlier hour often finds Sheer Meedish in a more accommodating mood.
Moderate[edit | edit source]
- Sickly Bernice's Taphouse, Crucible
Don't be fooled by the name. Sickly Bernice's Taphouse is exactly what a traveler would expect of an inn located in downtown Crucible. The lodgings, while not as opulent as those found at the nearby Choosy Beggar, are satisfactory. Sickly Bernice is an affable hostess, when she is well enough to work. The food is palatable, as are the beverages.
