0005063: Sewer grates are subterranean
When standing on top of a sewer grate in a Human town, I am told "There are no traces of sunlight here" and my field of vision is restricted as if I were underground. If I step to the side, I am outdoors again.
No tags attached.

I can confirm this.

Maybe this is to prevent you from fast traveling when under a sewer grate?

Consequently to this you can't fast travel from atop the grates: attempting to do so results in a "You can't travel until you emerge from underground." message; line of sight on such grates is also reduced respectively.
