The world of The Pale City city is a very old, very strange place, one where humanity has just barely survived the attempted murder of existence. It will not be easy for Vasek to visit these places. But he must do his best.
The poorest area on the platform, and the most dangerous. For whole lifetimes it has teetered somewhere between law and anarchy—though anarchy seems more likely to win. Vasek lived here for many years, and had hoped never to return. But life is cruel; and our hopes, meaningless.
The Tower District
The home of Melchior the Silent, the most human of the gods, who some believe created the platform and everything on it. Many spend their lives below His tower, asking questions He refuses to answer. Yet somehow, Vasek has spoken to Him before.
An immense wound gouged into the surface of the platform, infested with monsters, where a weary god sleeps. Naked madmen come here to die, covered in their own feces, mumbling nonsense as they kneel in the dust.
The House of Life
A cult of immortality, the eaters of the dead. Vasek was once employed by them, hunting corpses in the tunnels; but left years ago, for reasons he is too ashamed to speak of.
