Mortonbrace was a largely disregarded neighborhood in the Uptown District of Ravens Bluff. It was a dreary region of relative affluence, mostly known for being the locale that held the city's grand coliseum.[2] The neighborhood was named for the architect that presided over the great expansion of Ravens Bluff in the year 1304 DR.[3]

Many of its residents sought a home in Mortonbrace for the sake of anonymity as few visitors and Ravenians came to visit for business or pleasure. Despite that common misconception, there were a fair number of attractions to be found in Mortonbrace.[2]

  • Storm Dragon House: This merchant house dealt exclusively in household goods made in the nation of Thay, which garnered it a fair amount of criticism and suspicion.[1]
  • Toysmiths: This toy shop was run by two gnome brothers who regularly gifted their overstock to the children of the Bluff. It was a renowned establishment, and its proprietors were absolutely beloved by the city.[2]
  • Wyrmhoard House: A group of retired adventurers formed this merchant house and gained a fair amount of wealth by sponsoring other travelers, journeyers and would-be-heroes before joining the Ravenian Merchants Council.[1]
  • Coliseum: Originally built to host the Championship Games in 1341 DR, the grand coliseum on Raven Way hosted a great many fairs, tournaments, and contests of skill. The ravens from which the city took its name unfailingly perched over the 32 banners that hung from the coliseum's southern face. Each of these flags represented one of of the 32 Ravenian noble families.[2]
