A trashy street(s, w and n)
You step carefully around piles of garbage as you walk down this street. This area seems to be the uptown of the slums, as houses are made out of old wooden planks probably stolen from the nicer parts of Dale. To your west is what was a fine jewelry shop. Now, as all of Dale's forces are gone fighting the evil armies, it has been broken into and most of it is in pieces.
The only obvious exits are south, west and north.
