ROYAL QUARTER
Once a heavily guarded fortress for the royal family, it is now a damaged and war-pocked district, hollowed out by the vengeful hands of those wronged by the former Queen. No longer does the quarter represent anything of a past, gilded age–it is a sullen, desecrated arena for the unforgiving people.

THE IUDEX
A military base no more, it houses few soldiers, the Queen's dogs vanquished by a people's army with more conviction than they could have ever anticipated. Though the buildings remain relatively unscathed, it no longer represents the origins of the cirt's safeguard.

RESIDENTIAL QUARTER
It resembles a gated neighborhood no more, pilfered of its wealth and enclosed privacy. The upper-class dwellers are terrorized by the Lower Antiochian invaders, staying in their own homes, desperate to cling to the last of their possessions.

COMMERCE QUARTER
Broken windows, shattered storefronts: the Commerce Quarter is a ransacked, pillaged region, infiltrated and scoured by hands who've never felt that sort of silk before. Now, its streets are deserted, its businesses broken, for anything that held any worth has been plucked and pilfered.

TIER ZERO
An emptier place, now, less guarded and secure. Tier Zero is where the pirates have made their homes, docking by the sea to gleefully raid Antioch of its riches.

TIER ONE
No less dark, no less a pedestal of squalor, Tier One is a nucleic business district, a center of transactions. Flesh, food, and freedom, all marketed underneath their respective stands, are things to exchange, things to barter.

TIER TWO
Tier Two is a shade brighter than the rest, a calmer sector for the impoverished many that go back and forth from factory to home. Though the conditions remain the same, the trash heaps are piled in better corners, the warm bodies slunk in shadows.

TIER THREE
In the past, it was the closest anyone in the black city could be to the sun; light proliferating, dismal in the forgotten ruins of the old palace. But now, with Upper Antioch in the hands of the rebellious, it is an abandoned district, left to the somber hush of the elderly who still remember an older city.

AUXILIARY PEAKS
Outside the city gates and walls lies an unexplored conundrum, a vast, unknowable fog of kept farms and empty caverns. But peer closer, and examine the cultivated plants, the small dots of thieves and banished citizens, idly waiting for an opportunity to pounce and take.

OCEAN RUINS
The sea floor scroungers populate the inky depths of the surrounding waters, sweeping the history-laden junkyards of promised fortune. But it's a lonelier place down there, miles of nobody, miles of nothing but the terrible cling of what the world once was.

OTHER CITY-STATES
Other islands take on a similar form to Antioch, stranded on their mountainous base. Trade is performed with skepticism and a degree of careful wariness; no one can trust each other in this new, devastated Earth.

OPEN WATER AND AIR
Ships glide on sea and sky, prowling along the waves and the clouds. They are the explorers, the scoundrels that pilfer from cargo transports and Arbiter vessels. But without their interference, their dastardly presence, Antioch might not have survived at all.
