        By: Morningstar

The cramped and tightly knit Palestra -- the University district of the City -- is a law unto itself.

The University has no dormitories, and many of the buildings and businesses in the district have upper stories crammed with any who do not commute from other areas of the City.

Here are five locations which can add some spice to your city's university district.

        By: Morningstar

This slum reveals the darker face of the City. Shanteytown is exposed to the elements and unprotected by wall or guard. A seedy mixture of driftwood shacks, impromptu shelters, lean-tos and camps thrown up on old ruins, and filled with the underclass and those with nowhere else to go, Shanteytown is for many the end of the line.

Compatible Time Travel

        By: Mageek

Time manipulation has a special place in the realm of the supernatural. It offers endless possibilities and limitless power, but because of this can easily become game-breaking, create onerous repetition, or cause excessive confusion. This post has taken special care to present chrono-themed special abilities that play well with others and mesh with the role-playing format, all while still presenting a new collection of choices and mechanics to explore.
