Crumbling City

The buildings in the city are a mix of old, and hastily done and not intended to last long. The city council is a mix of inept and confused, and no progress is made. Work to improve the city fails or has trivial results.

Dangerous After Dark

The city does have a large, varied and vibrant nightlife, with a large student population making sure that the nightclubs get a lot of business. Most nights, there’s at least one stabbing, if not more. And yet, the dancing goes on, the drinking goes on, and no one seems to care except those who clean up after.
