The city is built in tiers; the lowest all the city’s crypts and foundries lying within a giant stone foundation under the city proper, known as the Catacombs, then the Market Floor, a huge open bazaar where most of the city’s business occurs, then the City Bastion, a pyramid raised above the city supported by massive pillars, which contains thousands of dragonborn homes, and finally the Lance Roost and Lance Barracks, where the Lance Defenders of Tymanther reside, and house the giant bats they use as mounts.
