City - [Lumos]
The most expensive building in Lumos owned by the wealthy and most recent heir Heimlich Lumos. It’s original founder, Orin Icarus, having sold the deed to the town eighty years prior, made it so that the Tower remained the central hub for all business in the city. Standing at eighty stories tall, laden with golden letters depicting the logo of Lumos on each side, it is said that it houses floors protected, barricaded even, as well as floors wrought with anarchy, death, and wild freedom. It is rumoured that some have isolated themselves within the Tower’s walls, completely sustained by means of growing their own food and relying on rats for a consistent source of protein. Others say that those who have decided to live their lives in seclusion eat more than just the rats. Perhaps trespassing intruders, or worse… No one can be sure.***
Hops Town was one part shopping center, and one part housing community today it is home to most and a small market of sorts, the crafters and traders of the city come here to trade with others, while simultaneously banding together to keep their community safe from those who would wish to do them harm as a collective. It is a leaderless town, most decisions coming to a vote, they often stay out of all other issues involving the city, many mothers flee here to raise children as doing so anywhere else seemed likely impossible. The community has a roaming guard at night as everyone does their part to maintain their own sense of order. Only taking in outsiders when that outsider provides something worthy of the town. They send regular shipments to who ever controls the Dam as to further maintain what little peace they can hold onto.
Icarus University, once a prestiged college level academy that focused on the great sciences of our time. Today it is somewhat of a desolate battle ground, knowledge left behind for experience with this new world. While there are no longer teachers at the school, the library, and computer lab still see use from time to time so long as the power in on. Books from all over, are single-handedly protected by the last librarian known as Octavia Ra Chelle. No one has ever liver to see what she does to protect those books, but after rumors of her killing and consuming The former Mutiny Leader Brax Yartholi no one dares disturb the library. The Dean of the campus still roams its halls as well, not gifted with the ability to transform, but due to him losing his sanity, he is now simply known as Icarus, the wanderer. A body without a soul.
An old apartment complex that despite all the chaos has managed to stand and is still hospitable to a majority of the people who live here. Due to violence life here is a difficult one for most, but it is an ideal recruitment ground for all of the families. This is one place where the battles are frequent, but are in a civilized and honor based interaction, as opposed to the usual guerilla warfare tactics that are commonly seen.
The territory of House Draconis, after the mayor died, house draconian attempted to take the entire city, and bring it under martial law, this was met with great resistance, and they lost a majority of their territories, now they primarily reside in city hall, where they plot and plan to take the city back and bring forth order. City hall is a dedicated infrastructure with the national guard, and local police force being in close proximity.
East Se Prison
Close to City hall rest the prison, which despite two jailbreaks, has remained intact, now a dungeon of sorts for House Draconis. Though they had to make several modifications, to handle the new capabilities of the prisoners that live here. They find themselves capable of holding prisoners of war.
The subways used to run a connection outside of the city, today it is what many theorist believe is keeping the island a float.
A pocket of air that somehow hadn’t flooded with water despite being underground, and below sea level. It is home to those of us who became nocturnal creatures and fled away from the light. It is also home to many who lost their homes, having nowhere to flee during storms. There is a single train that still operates, that will take you from the north to the south part of town. Anyone that knows how can operate it, but no one claims it due to the overall hostility the nocturnals have for anyone who attempts to.
Completely and utterly destroyed the mall was the first place to see mass looting, murder, and many say was the center of chaos for the Sons of Discord, There is nothing left to loot, and once people grew aware of the traps that awaited any who came here, it eventually became forgotten about. A land that no one ever ventured, except the few who made it the way it is. Every Once in awhile someone would venture in, only to be caught by a trap, and abandoned by his comrades, where he would later be served up on an open fire. The mall is often decorated with entrails and inedible organs.
