Eastgate, a city district of Absalom, is located on the city's far eastern wall and is surrounded by the Petal District to the north, The Coins to the west, and the Precipice Quarter to the south.1

Eastgate is an almost entirely residential district, and many of its largely working-class inhabitants commute to other parts of the city for work, even though it can take up to two hours to reach the city's most distant parts. The district is quiet and orderly, in some part due to its nomarch Lord Ayunga of House Akkesh also being the captain of the local district watch.23

Places of interest

The eastern gate of Absalom, the Postern, is aptly located in Eastgate and manned by the Post Guard.2 The district's government meets in Eastgate Hall, the former hunting lodge of the Raiders of Rovagug's Hall.4

The tallest building in Eastgate is the Blue Tower, home to the Winged Sandals, an order of dedicated messengers.5

Gilltown is the biggest enclave of aquatic azarketis in Absalom, and is unobtrusively located behind a row of cheap housing for the district watch, laborers, and clerks.3

The Grand Holt, the largest tree on the Isle of Kortos, is located in Eastgate's bucolic Green Ridge neighborhood. An enormous fig tree that spans many city blocks, it is cared for by a dedicated cult known as the Circle of Stones, who also care for the tree's resident dryad, Iolanthe.3
