Also known as the Giant's Quarter, Talltown takes up the Cliffside half of Level 4 in Fellport, from the Lift to the wall. As the name implies, the buildings here feature taller doors and ceilings, allowing easy access for the larger-than-human parts of society. The founders gave this area to the giants who helped build the city. Giants designed and largely built the Ramps, a fact conveniently erased by the Empire as soon as they opened to public traffic.
Most of the buildings stand abandoned but well-maintained, as the giants have largely moved north in the past 20-30 years, back to their homelands in the mountains. People of all sizes who lack funding or anywhere better to go have taken to sleeping in the abandoned shops, and nobody seems to mind if they don't cause a ruckus.
A small enclave of Firbolgs have recently come to town and purchased a few of the buildings to set up businesses and raise their families. A few older Stone Giants remain in their homes, taking care of the neighborhood and watching the smaller folk scurry around the ships coming and going in the harbor below.
