The winds of Uminora
While Upper Ridgecrest is technically a hall of the Dwarves, it has been mostly taken over by humans. The Dwarves are still there, to be sure, and the human magistrate runs everything by them, to ensure they are okay with it, but not necessarily before it’s actually done.
The Dwarves accept this, because the humans bring in food, wealth, and customers. Some of the Middle class Middle and much of the Upper classes Reside up the Stone Stair, in the halls, while the peasantry and much of the Middle are confined to Lower Ridgecrest. Still, there is a great deal of commerce and trading going on in Upper Ridgecrest.
