[Excerpt from a historical overview of the Estate District]
Home to some of the most powerful families in Dunwall, the Estate District has been a jewel in city's crown for generations. No district enjoys finer restaurants or cultural events, and no families inspire more admiration, or more gossip, than the lords and ladies of the Estate District.
The late Lord Boyle and his lovely wife perhaps best epitomize the privileged class of citizens. Their annual costume ball is the talk of high society, creating ripples throughout Dunwall when one family or another is excluded from the guest list. But it's not all play that drives the Boyles; on several occasions, they've generously brought in poor laborers from elsewhere in the city for a week or two to work on their garden or home, providing vital employment for those who need it most.
With so much history, the Estate District has also seen its share of trouble as fortunes are made and lost. The great Lord Preston Moray, and his eccentric wife Vera were once the toast of Dunwall, before tragedy struck and they fell into ruin.
Riddled with canals and large homes that enjoy historical preservation tax breaks, the Estate District is a place to which we can all aspire.
