North Ward    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

If you travel North from city’s main gate, you will have traveled some of the great and grandest elements of Antioch. Then you will enter the most common and humble. The NorthWard is classic Antioch. It serves as the “average” that all other quarters are measured by.

Quiet Ward    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

It was supposed to be the district of hearth and home: the domestic soul in a city of industry and trade. It has been the quiet ward for most of the city’s recent history. It is still the “soul” of the city, but now that soul is changing.

Greenway Ward    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Originally planned to be a green area, where an Elventi community would thrive, this area has become the ward where the rich and powerful live. It is neat, orderly, and practically invitation only.

Maker's Ward    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Every city needs a place for building things. These places often have pompous names that nobody ever uses, except those in the City Offices. The Maker’s Ward is just such a place.

Alley District    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

There are always places between other places. The Alley District is sandwiched between the Temple Ward and the Docks Ward. Of all the wards, this one has the most ways in and out, thus is one of the most heavily traveled areas in all of Antioch.

DiPlaza    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The ArchStreet, leading from the main gate, spills out into the DiPlaza - The center of Antioch. Each of the five other districts of Antioch have a gateway at the plaza.  Each of the triangular districts has one corner nipped off, creating the hexagonal shape of the central DiPlaza. A fitting plaza for a (nearly) hexagonal shaped city.

Temple Ward    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

There is only one path to divinity in Antioch. There is only one street with temples. It reaches from the DiPlaza to the end of the Ward, to the temple of Beginnings and Endings.

Temple District -1    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The work is being done on the largest temple of Stryfe ever constructed.  So massive is this project, that it could not have been placed within the city’s walls without displacing a large portion of Gnopolis’s inhabitants.

Taymour District    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The Taymour district is tucked between two other distinct districts in the city. It is a transitional district.  It is where the newly rich or noble (or the formerly rich and tarnished noble) tend to live. It is also a place with a deep history with the city.

ArchStreet    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Many people would assume that this main stree is called ArchStreet because of the arches across it.  In the local language (See the Arth Threads), Arch is a prefix of importance.  More than main street, ArchStreet is the Street of all Streets… an egotistical naming of the street, proclaiming that all the streets in the world are a shallow copy of ArchStreet.  It is a name of hubris and pride for the locals. It is a bone of contention in certain circles of the Imperial court and the other city states of ThirdLand. Given Antioch’s pivotal and growing role in the Imperial in recent centuries, it may be well named after all.

Gateway Plaza    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Surrounded by a massive wall 10 Imperial strides tall, there are only two ways into The City. One is accessible only from the River. The Other is the Massive Gate that leads into the Gateway Plaza.

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…

Azure District    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The district gets its name by the good sized walls that are painted a bright blue that mark the magic district. That wall is watched by the Witchhunter guard.

Biblos Quarter    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The Great Library’s name is still officially "The Cathedral of Knowledge" even after the Reformation.  It sill dominates the quarter, even though things have changed so much.

Wall Line    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The Outer wall is a barrier against the dangers from outside the city. In its shadows is another barrier, one from hope, comfort, and warmth.

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.
