Terrain: Mountains surround the city with shrubbery, small woods around and within the city which is set by a large fresh water sea. On the other side of the mountains the terrain is still very much the same with it becoming more mixed the further away from the mountain one goes and the farther north and south they are.
Population: 90% Human (both infected and uninfected)
Development Thread: If the planet contains any powerful locations or objects, a thread must accompany the submission to earn the right to create such a place.
Scientific Industrial - advanced, radios, space travel and defenses (though the defense industry has turned towards the city with the outbreak occurring), cars, motorcycles, guns. The most advanced weapons is given to the military like plasma blasters just for example. The citizens are forced to use blades etc.
City’s Name: Isiniale
Deimos was colonized by a human colony that was the planet’s surname. The expedition did not have the same elements on this planet as on earth so they had to figure out new ways to use it to build structures and weapons etc. What was once a small town quickly became the huge city is it now today (roughly 100-200 miles large) The people who founded the whole expedition were declared scholars, the leaders were declares the monarchs along with their families. The monarch’s closest friends became his or her advisors. The whole government is set up as a monarchy as a result. A hundred years after its founding the main city doubled in size, major rules and classes came about in a caste system and the monarchy reigned supreme. Magic developed as well as experiments, infrastructure and other things. It is around this time in which the plague struck the large city, the monarchy would fence off certain areas completely regardless of whether they were healthy or not. Slowly the virus would spread and the scholars and scientists would start to research into what was causing such affliction, it was magic all along. The monarchs would continue to section of areas of the city as the virus would spread, the people would begin to panic and turn against their leaders, friends and family, even the military and the guard meant to protect them. Assassinations became a common occurrence, as well as murder of those who show signs of the affliction. The balance of daily life was thrown out the window who show how much money and have any amount of power within the daily live of the people.
Blood would riddle the streets, homes would be barred up in the quarantine areas. The people would be walled off from the rest of the population. Havoc would occur and those who are the strongest (wether in the final stages of infection, insane or just trying to survive) would remain.
History of the Virus -
The virus started in Zone 1 (What was once known as Kenrio Park) when a mage decided to start experimenting with something that was not fully understood. It started with the lab tests, his family was the first infected, from there is spreaded to their friends and anyone who came into contact with. The mage’s family was quickly pronounced either deceased or pronounced insane and sent to hospitals. This turned out to be an even worse mistake, this helped the virus spread and strengthen even more leaving the mage alone (since it was his magic he is immune) and slowly going insane as well. This would lead to the quaintens and other extremes the monarch took during this unknown outbreak. The monarch has yet to set out laws that restrict the use of some magic for personal uses or banning it all together as no one knows what really causes the virus.
The city is based off of gothic victorian architecture with a slightly modern twist to it. The homes are not all red inside and gothic, it is advanced with some very old gothic pieces thought (spiral stairwell, large bookcases etc.) The city is build upon cobble stones and bricks and the mode of transportation is either by carriage, or ground motors. Air travel is common in the docking bay for immigrants and those coming to the planet to visit family. Water wise the city is based near a large fresh water sea.
During the nighttime three moons could be present the largest being Urania (the white moon of mothers) then Brania (the black moon of fathers) and finally Ilani (the red moon of blood and death). Urania and Brania represents the starter of life - mothers and father. While Ilani is the moon of death and the keeper of life - the blood.
Slavery - There was once slavery here and still is but it is not as large as it used to be
The Virus (Muertos) - Muertos is the virus that was brought about by magic. It spreads through contact with blood and possibly the air. The virus would start out with a simple day or two of day life symptoms like a fever, cold sweat, nausea etc. Then nothing, after a few days it would hit again, attacking the nervous system, causing muscle spasms, throwing up blood and coughing up blood as well as other flu symptoms. Hallucinations would occur, physical changes and mental as well occurs but it is different from individual to individual. Blood would finally start to leak from the eyes, mouth and ear. Insanity is very possible as well as death. No one is safe from the virus one they are exposed, it can kill babies, children, the young and the old quickly and suddenly. It is a very violent and painful death indeed.
The aristocracy monarchy -
The Monarchs are ruled by a reigning family. Right now the monarch is Count Jacobe Gyles he was a stern yet kind ruler that has become corrupted as or late from what is it not known.
Military and Classes -
When someone is born in a certain class he or she is stuck in the class of birth. The only people who are not able to join the military are the lower classes, and only the middle and upper class may join. The only time that a lower class is accepted into the military is via a contest through a dueling contest, here the top three winners can and may join the military for a better living for their family.
Virus Quarantine (Zone 1)
Caustle Shaudo - Where the church lays, here is where those infected the the Virus are put in hopes of treatment at first. But and the infliction got stronger, more deadly and more terrifying the Caustle Shaudo is full of those who went into insanity either when treating the infected or just from the illness itself. Like many of the other quarantined areas blood it everywhere, with the smell of rotting flesh and death and despair. The place is full of dust, rats, ravens and unused instruments as well as furniture.
Zone 1 - This is ground zero where the virus started. A mage had conducted the experiments that lead to the outbreak is left there and is still there, going insane from the magic and the occurrences in the zone. Zone 1 was a ten mile section of the city and it now a ghost town save for the grotesque infected and insane still wandering the bloodied abandoned streets.
Bloodrusted Bridge (One known as - Gylesstead Bridge) - Like many other bridges connecting the areas together past the quarantine zones this bridge was destroyed and burned to prevent any chance of someone crossing over, no regards to weather he or she is infected or not. A massacre occurred here during the quarantines where all the citizens tried to get out of the area via the bridge. The military acted by killing anyone who came too close to the bridge which was being walled off at the time, eventually they set fire to it as well. Regardless of if a child was present or not.
Tristeria Hospital - Once the greatest hospitals in he city. It was where the virus really started to spread due to the busy atmosphere during the day and during the night with the night shift. Now it is ruins, with the screams of the infected and dying still being heard throughout it's five store floors. Things that were once used are now either destroyed or bloodied and even dusty with cobwebs and other disgusting things in life. The wood on some walls has been destroyed trough natural ways or unnatural ways. This old hospital is an extremely dangerous area since a powerful infected insane roams the halls hunting for any uninfected to attack and kill. Rarely would it go outside unless in pursuit of prey.
Eventually the infection would take up ⅓ of the city, splitting families apart from each other leaving the survivors to pray for death within the quarintine area or the fall prey to the insane once human beasts that prowl the streets and houses looking for any way to drive off what they are seeing and feeling in any ways they could.
Outside the Quarantine Zone
Kasile Library - The place for research and writing even reading of course. This is a huge library almost taking up a whole block in the city and it four stores tall. It houses many books, archives and electronic data bases on the history of the city and the planet, viruses, etc. just like any other library in modern day. The council used to meet here when the city was first developing from the town and where the original monarchs sat there is a statue depicting each one of the thirteen founders. Offering are often left at the statues and honors are conducted here.
Isinaian Castle - Where the monarchs live along with the advisors, coin counter, etc. Here is the place where every decision is made for the city nowadays. The king and the queen live here with their three adult children as well as members of the military, upper classes and sometimes a middle class family here and there. No poor person may enter upon its grounds without permission or of utmost importance.
Venator Cazadores HQ Info - https://sta.sh/0vgafkjgzrs
Sea of Laminar - the fresh water sea in which the city of Isinile is situated next to as its main source of food, and water. The waters are clear and crystal but where the plague has been quarantined and struck the waters is red with the blood of its victims.
Marlgo's Oddity Shop - Sample of the tissue from the virus and other diseases are here for study under careful sanitation and tests. People may go in to see what other marvels of mutations and beasts are kept here are specimens. Anything from conjoined birds, deer, and other creatures are kept here as well. It is the place of research for the human body and it's limits as well as other beasts. The building is stone walled with steel doors, barred windows and wooden laid atop of steel walls inside and the floor is carpeted as well. This place is creepy as well as fascinating. Hunters can buy equipment from here and ask for upgrades when dealing with certain targets etc.
