Elftown is the working-class trueblood neighborhood sometimes known as Fare-You-Well-Park (we're not really sure why as the actual Fare-You-Well park is miles to the south in the downtown and much poorer area). Some upperclass truebloods use "being from Efltown" as a slur. At the northeast of Elftown is Gateway, a residential and business area located around the gate to Elfland. Gateway is known for bookstores, theaters and cafes and serving a more upscale clientele with a lot deeper pockets. Yeppies (Young Elfin Professionals) abound.

The only way in and out of Elfland is through the Elfhaeme
Gate and the only way through the gate is through these
offices, guards and red bureaucratic tape of the Gate. While
the gate itself isn't physically imposing (though the marble
and gold makes it quite lovely), the true barrier is the thick
multi-colored and swirling wall of magic. Don't look directly
at it for too long and don't ever try and jump the border.

Built in and out of what once was a shopping mall, this is
the the market to end all markets. Anything you might
possibly want or need from Realm or World can be found here.
Most traders that set up shop here are live in the Elftown,
El Barrio and Dragontown districts.

A mix of Hungarian and Trueblood cuisine. It sounds odd,
but believe us, it's worth every penny. The prix fixe dinner
looks expensive, but you get so much food, you'll have
enough leftovers to feed yourself for a week. Wine snobs take
note: the vintage Tokay here is as good as the food.
This is one of the few permanent shops in Trader's Heaven.
