Dust Town is Orzammar's poorest district where the "casteless" dwarves dwell. The old palaces of Orzammar were located here but now it is only ruins. The dwarves living here have been so marginalized by society that they don't officially exist in city records. Here you may engage in smuggling, track down a thief, deal with a gang, or help the poor. Thieves and beggars make their homes here, since they have no caste and are thus not allowed to engage in activities that are reserved for the upper castes by law.
