An imwiet is a periodic culling of the poor and shiftless of Fenstre ordered by the Geriarchs and is usually enacted by both the Hallilan and the Militia. They occur every few years, always unannounced, and take place in Westmer Community, Ipty and Lake Village. In the past imwiets occurred in Old Town and Hired Skull.
The imwiet's stated purpose is to remove beggars, the sick and the homeless from the congested streets and by-ways of Fenstre, thus eradicating disease. These unfortunates are usually slaughtered on the spot and thrown into the canals.
