Tannhauser Street    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

Tannhauser is a working class neighboorhood. No nobles will be found perusing it’s small market square, or the few shops there. The wealthy and powerful have holdings and investments in Tannhauser, but few would be willing to be seen on those dank streets.

Fog of Mills Park    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

While travelling through an unfamiliar area of the city at night, it it easy for one to become quite lost.  Though this is an upper-class residential neighbourhood just east of downtown, the streets wind, twist, and turn in upon themselves in a rather chaotic fashion.

Gardens of Ardales    Locations  (Neighborhoods)   (Any)

The wealthy landowners of Ardales began to grow personal gardens on their flat rooftops.  The shade helped cool the buildings. The competition renewed among the aristocracy for the lushest garden.  Over time, the increased population caused an increase in building density, especially in the city’s heart.

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…

       By: MoonHunter

You come upon a ruined building in the back section of a city park (or other out of the way area of the city). The ruins are fairly overgrown. All that is really standing is a doorway and its frame. If you pass through the opened door, you travel to a different world. If the door closes, there may not be a doorway back to get you back.
