There is a pretty good Backdrop: Westgate article in Dragon Magazine 428 by Erik Scott de Bie!

BACKDROP: WESTGATE
By Erik Scott de Bie
The city of Westgate is brimming with
opportunity—for those who can handle
the risk.

I drifted into sleepy-time last evening wrapped in Westgate-tinged dreams, Erik.

And I've you to thank for that.

Thank you Plageuscarred.

EDIT: I can't download the article. Is anyone else able to download it?

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

I didn't have any problems downloading the actual article... but my account automatically signed out twice when I clicked on the download icon in two prior download attempts. On the third try, however, it began and then completed the article download without an issue.

man............ I cant get it no ddi......., not worth getting one at this point either...

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power

I will of course answer any questions.

@Wooly: I thought you'd appreciate that one. It's based on a real conversation I had with said individual.

Also, fun fact, the cover image for Dungeon is of the bridge over the River Thunn, which splits the two segments of Westgate (the city proper and the Shou-dominated East End). You can clearly see the architectural variation.

Cheers
