Pierhaven was the harbour section of the city of Yendip, capitol of Yquatine. It was, according to a man named Boris, who had advised Arielle about Yendip, the place where all the best bars were. Indeed, it was in this region of the city that she had stumbled upon Il-Eruk's bar and tried her first Anthaurk Ale.
The general characteristic of the district was that it was a cramped and busy place served by a Byzantine network of barely-serviceable wooden walkways. It housed an array of service industries such as tattoo parlours, trance dens, brothels, bars and clubs. (PROSE: The Fall of Yquatine)
