ROYAL QUARTER
Few have ever touched the shaped and sculptured grounds of the Royal Quarter, where the queen and her council are located. Entrance is limited to the very few and the very privileged, and beyond the gates and constant Arbiter patrol is a palace untouchable, a point of origin for monomania and underhanded warfare.

THE IUDEX
The steel-plated stronghold of the Arbiter quarter is an armed and formidable structure, bedecked with vaults and marching guards alike. Through the clamor of training and education is a more sinister lurk; a snare drum echo of a Praetorian off to meet the dead.

RESIDENTIAL QUARTER
Resplendent with upscale townhouses and manses alike, the Residential Quarter is a lush and verdant display of extravagance and wealthy living. Upper Antiochians can expect to have visited a few of these households; there's nothing to do, after all, but attend functions and gatherings.

COMMERCE QUARTER
Though the shops are less occupied, the streets less filled, the easy amble of the privileged will make their distinctive turns around the Commerce Quarter. They vainly eye objects of indeterminate value in gold-edged windows and silk-pillowed stands, deciding, once and for all, if such a painting would look suitable in the grand hallway.

TIER ZERO
Soot and weariness slop against the basement shores, the Tier Zero foundations. Patrols stand with yawning faces, monitoring the silent tides. Beneath their empty guarding, the pirates mill, sleeping beneath their very feet, straining close and closer into the black city innards.

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
It's the closest anyone in the black city will be to the sun; light proliferating, dismal in the forgotten ruins of the old palace. Voices grow hushed on sacred ground, wanting to preserve a modicum of dignity for a miserable city that resembles nothing of its triumphant past.

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.

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.

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 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.
