The guild of masons is not only a very powerful society in Harbat - rivalled only by the trade guild, but a very busy one as well. Harbat is constantly under construction: buildings to tear down, streets to rename, a TIGHT SCHEDULE to keep!
As a result, old places that are never renewed tend be neglected, forgotten, they fade away. When the hapless wanderer takes a wrong turn in Harbat, and there are many wrong turns, he might soon find himself in the Forgotten Ward: a ghost town cramped with desolate residences, broken windows, dust, crooked and leafless trees, even a whole town square with a deserted cathedral claimed by ravens.
The whole of the Forgotten Ward seems much older than the rest of Harbat, medieval almost.
This part of Harbat is for sale.
