Do we wish to be righteous again?
Redmond is the poster child for urban decay. A partial meltdown of the Trojan-Satsop power plant in 2013 contaminated Beaver Lake and other areas for kilometers around (Now known as Glow City), causing many residents to flee to safer pastures. The first Crash in 2029 collapsed the computer industry in the area, causing even more residents and businesses to flee the scene while the squatters moved in. Eventually, the Metroplex government ceded defeat and left the district to the wolves.
About seven hundred thousand (estimated) people live in the district. Luxuries like running water, sanitation, electricity, or a functioning roof are all but unknown except for a few residents. These groups usually band together, and often hire the local gangs to provide protection from everyone except the hired gang’s excesses. The Mafia, Yakuza, and the Triads all run quite profitable businesses in BTLs, alcohol, drugs, and illegal weaponry.
