A Meeting place of Roads(n, sw, e and w)

As you slowly walk down the street you come to a meeting place of the two roads. It is very busy here and several elves are standing around waiting for something to do. People keep passing you by, as well as several horsemen. You notice that the city seems to be on a small hill. Beautiful Mallorn trees are all around you.
The only obvious exits are north, southwest, east and west.
