The Old Quays is the site of the town’s original wharf while the quays upstream were only added to Sparrowfax just two years ago. Rebuilt from scratch after the Tielfing attack, they are far busier than the newer addition. A trio of sentries patrol the Quays and nearby warehouses at night, as is done on the New Quays.
Boats belonging to a number of different travelers tie up here, the most common of which are the keelboats of the halfling Swiftwater Clan. The Swiftwaters carry cargo all the way down to Bayport. They’re more than willing to take passengers for a small fee. Irena Swiftwater is the matriarch of the clan. She is a sharp merchant who passes herself off as an absent-minded reader of fortunes and maker of minor charms.
