Sprawl: The Zone
Deep underground is a vast cavern that has been converted into citylet. The
place is called The Zone. Here, trolls, orks, humans, elves, and dwarves live
side by side. Everything goes. Its a total free zone. No rules except the
ones you can enforce yourself. The Zone is approximately ten square blocks
in size. The cavern is filled with small buildings, no larger than three
stories high, built along winding alleys. The cavern is lighted by streetlamps
, and is often damp and foggy. Its divided into seperate neighborhoods, usually
on the basis of race, ethnicity, or shadowland affiliation. Its always
partytime in The Zone, crowds jostle, gangs roam. Its a 24 hour a day place.
Anything or anybody you want can be found here. Every vice fulfilled. Any deal
made. Imagine fusing The Village (of New York), the Red Light District of
Frankfurt, and the ghettos of Los Angeles and Brooklyn, and the bazaar
atmosphere of Baghdad and you have The Zone.
