The City: A Fata Morgana Sub-Forums

Floor 783: Grootslang

The Financial District of the City

Grootslang is similar to Nairobi, Kenya and Dakar, Senegal. The City's stock exchange can be found in Ninka Nanka. The fortified Muslim town of Harar Jugol can be found in Tikoloshe.

Found Scrawled Between the Pages of Frommer's Guide

Grootslang used to be named something else, but nobody can remember it. A day after Apartheid ended, everyone woke up one morning and found themselves calling it Grootslang, and celebrations and decorations all over the city. The leading theory for the name change is that the City is allowing Afrikaners to reintegrate with the city, after decades of walls appearing in front of their faces as they try to walk, and things like it.

Snapple Fact

DID YOU KNOW? The most common language spoken by residents and vendors in Grootslang is Swahili.

Floor 395: Vetala

The Commerce District of the City

Vetala is similar to New Delhi, India, and Tehran, Iran. Nagini is the biggest and most popular shopping zone in the world. Peri holds all of Damascus, Syria, as it was before the war.

Found Scrawled Between the Pages of Frommer's Guide

Keeping stores in Nagini stocked has lead to underground tunnels beneath this floor of the City, to ensure the easy movement of goods and people. There are even more shops and areas beneath the city than there are above. Don't explore there. The underground has another name: smugglers paradise.

Snapple Fact

DID YOU KNOW? Vetala has the largest architecture variation in the City.

Floor [?]: Other Destinations

The Other Places In and Out of the City

Tonton Macoute, also known as the Harbor, is where most people coming in by water enter the City.

Found Scrawled Between the Pages of Frommer's Guide

There are hundreds of floors, alright. Exploration has become kind of an obsession of mine. You find things out there. You can also leave the City, go out into the wide world where no one can understand you unless you speak their native language. Sounds like a bad dream, right? But maybe it's us. Maybe this whole city is a dream.

Snapple Fact

DID YOU KNOW? The Krab Kafe in Tonton Macoute is the only known haunt of a legendary fortune-teller. She likes the whole-roasted holiday crab there.

Below Ground: Panopticon

The City's Prison

The Panopticon has a massive stockpile of anti-dominion technology, and is the largest and most secure anti-dominion technology currently available.

You hear someone's voice.

What do you want to know about the prison for? Well, alright, don't get tetchy: I'll tell you.

Panopticon is actually three prisons: Xibalba is for women, Duzakh is for men, Naraka is for people of other genders. All the cops send people down there with minimum trials. It ain't exactly a fair deal, I'll tell you that much. Mass arrests and abuses are becoming more and more common.

You be careful out there, kid. They're rounding people up.

Past & Alternate Universe

The Place for Memories and Dreams

Here is where we store recollections of things that happened so, so long ago, but still leave you clutching your sheets and gasping for air in the morning after remembering, your demon rubbing you in wordless comfort (or sneering at your sweat).

Also encompassed in this are mere fantasies—suppositions, potentials (you know how many dimensions there are out there?), and the contents of good or bad dreams—and thus, things that won't affect the plot.

Can take place in the City, or the Mortal Realm, or the Demon Realm, or any other realm you imagine. Make it count.
