Gates Ward

The only official entrance to the mountain-city, Medale. The three large portcullises that lead into the city are heavily guarded by professional soldiers and trained civilians briefly interview all who pass into and from the city.   There is a small measure of corruption among the people who work in this area - in truth many of them sought out these positions to have access to smugglers and various types of contraband.   Each portcullis has an inner and exterior gate, requiring two able-bodied individuals to open - lever and crank both intentionally too distant from eachother to be simultaneously operated by a single individual. The level to release the gates can be activated by a single person in case of emergency and there are loud bronze bells in the gatehouse that ring when the lever is used to alarm anyone who might be between the gates before they fall.
