Theme / RP Hooks
A packed mass of humanity, Escondido - previously a mixed commercial-residential area - has become a rat's warren of buildings jammed cheek to cheek, fighting to stay within the patrolled boundaries that keep its Grey area from becoming Dark. Some sections of the city remain Bright enough to look decent, sell decent things, and attract a decent clientele, especially nearest the Tube station. Others, filtering out toward the fringes, are sliding decidedly into the Dark. Some business owners are making a concerted effort to improve the area, but as with most urban renewal projects post-Fall, are making slow headway.
Technically MetSec, but being so far south means response times can be long (when they bother to come at all). Most residents and businesses supply their own security or contract with a local provider.
- The Broken Throne: A year ago, a large 'Hover Ship ' crashed into the city (though it's uncertain as to where in the city). The damage has subsequently been cleaned up as much as possible but the swath of destruction to the more dark, fringe area of the city remains.
