New Gate and Spider's Gate
This city gate restricts access to New City. Save for priests and senior military men, few of the people of Old City are allowed to enter here, though passage in the reverse direction is free-flowing. Dwellers in New City are given passes to show their place of residence and are allowed to return there freely after visiting Old City.
This is so named because the buildings immediately beyond it, in New City, have traditionally belonged to merchants dealing in specialty goods—principally silks from the far south, spun by pupae and silk spiders. Now, passage is restricted to Old City folk unless they work for merchants in the area immediately beyond, in which case they bear badges showing their trade and passes allowing them entrance.
