The Gowntown neighborhood of Ravens Bluff was a wealthy and important part of the city's Temple District,[1] housing many noble residences.[2] It was among the safest locales in the Bluff, heavily patrolled by the the City Watch, with clean walkways and streets, free from the usual hawkers and vendors that could often be found in other quarters. The typical weapon-brandishing adventurers that strolled through other districts in town were notably absent around Gowntown.[1]

The neighborhood garnered its name, "Gowntown", from the great number of priests and clerics found about town, walking to and from their residences and nearby places of worship.[1]
