Sunset District    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

It began with buildings along the sunset road, the road to the west.  This is the west most area of the city proper, all of it new growth beyond the existing city walls.  Hence, they seem to be building into the sunset.

Old City    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

This section of the city shows the city’s roots as a medieval/ primitive town.  Surrounded by the original city walls, Old City is filled with heavy stone buildings. The buildings here are different from the rest of the city. They look like they were part of an ancient castle or fort, or built in the age when the city was on the frontier of civilization.

The Calm Alleys    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The Calm Alley, and a few small insignificant streets nearby have always been calm, some would say boring. There are few people in those narrow passages, and no one looks into your eyes as you pass them…

Sky Street    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Sky street (and the blocks around it) are odd.  The shadows are darker. The air is damper. The mood is bleak and errie. The street is silent, all the noise muted somehow. However, you can always seem to hear someone crying.

The Place of Holding    Locations  (Establishment)   (Other)

The People of Antioch are pretty forgiving. However, when their laws are transgressed, you really do not want to be the person who is caught.

It is massive and grey. It nearly blots out the sun as you approach. Soon it will be the last time you will see the horizon.

Old Town Jail    Locations  (Establishment)   (Water)

As you are marched towards The Key, you can feel the rickety dock sway back under the weight of the prisoners. The rowing of The Key is slow and deliberate. You see your home for the next few months. You are suprised it is still afloat.

Many think gold and silk are the way to wealth, but people always need to eat and they hate to eat the "same old bland thing". Thus they will always buy herbs, spices, and salt.

Chapel of the Wayfarer    Locations  (Establishment)   (Water)

The temple/ church in this sea side town is just another one. It is part of the common faith for the region. You might not give it a second glance. But if you are a worker of the sea, it is the holiest of shrines.

"Many strange things may be seen in the Great Swamps, not all real. But I tell you, there was a ship and it was real! Well it was old and all sails torn and had many holes in the hull... but anyway it was hundreds of miles from the Sea! How it came to be there, I can only wonder..."
