    The West

    The western part of the city is often home to the poorer residents. Here there is a certain grunge that permeates the town from the graffiti on the once cleaned brick buildings to the broken and unmaintained architecture. Crime runs high within the western half of town, making it the home of supernatural gangs of illicit activities. Such activities are rarely reported however, and most residents are distrustful of individual's of authorities, instead letting the powerful supernatural beings sort things out amongst themselves. Be careful wandering the Western streets after the sun falls.

    Noah's Ark

    Resting upon the harbor, Noah's Ark appears to be little more than an abandoned cargo ship. Accessible from an entrance hidden in the shadows, The Ark is a veritable Were-playground that specializes in fighting tournaments for all creatures great and small. With both singles and doubles tournaments to compete in, the title of Ark Champion is hotly contested amongst the Were population. If anything illegal is going on in the city it's sure to be happening within the back rooms or behind the ring-side bar.

    Warehouse District

    Warehouse District

    The warehouse district rests just upon the harbor within the city. Many of the warehouses belong to corporate companies although some are used for less the legal means. Be careful when wandering this district at night for many groups meet within those dark, dilapidated buildings. There are also whispers of hard to obtain goods being sold behind those closed doors but you have to know who's who to get an in!

black magic wielder, some say a witch

She shouldn’t be in the warehouse district this late, but there is nowhere else to go. Not for this.

A small fire crackles in a makeshift pit, the heat of it thickening and building to a stifling degree in the tiny room. The building itself is old, abandoned for some time by whoever previously used it - most likely as a storage facility or small warehouse. Three windows line the far wall, each of them thrown wide to vent the smoke now curling up from the flame. A trickle of sweat crawls down her spine as she watches the movement of the smoke, her eyes illuminated by the reflecting flame. She sits cross-legged in front of the fire pit, a bag of jasmine flowers and poppy seeds resting in her lap.

She stokes the fire, setting the poker down next to her and whispering a prayer before tossing a handful of the flowers and seeds atop the burning coal. Her eyes close as she inhales deeply, taking in a lungful of the aromatic smoke. Her body sways side to side, her face sagging into tranquility as the effects of the smoke grip her.

The visions start slow, flickering and fading into images that flash through her mind like quick moving water, none of them lingering. A cracked, tarnished hand mirror. A viper, poised to strike. Charon crossing the river Styx, the water turned red with blood. Many more come in crashing waves that assault her mind, too fast for her to grasp at all.

With a sharp gasp, she jerks out of the trance, her face pallid and bright with sweat. Her eyes go to the fire, the smoke billowing from it now thick and wild, choking the oxygen out of the room despite the open windows. ”That’s not good,” she murmurs to herself, her hands slowly uncurling from fists that she’d made during the strange, ominous reading. Little half moon cuts pepper her palms from the nails digging in too sharply and she rubs them against her jeans to wipe away the pooling blood.

With a groan, she climbs to her feet and crosses the room to stick her head out one of the windows, a cool blast of air chilling the sweat on her face. She inhales deeply to clear the smoke from her lungs, needing to clear her head to assess the visions that had come to her. She almost doesn’t want to, unnerved by the heaviness she’d felt in them, the sense of danger as if a storm were hanging just off the coast and ready to fall upon her with all the force of a raging hurricane. The smoke itself had reflected bad things to come, stifling the air around her until it became difficult to breathe.

Something isn’t right, she thinks to herself returning to the fire, collecting the bucket of water she’d brought with her on the way. She tosses it over the coals, fanning the air with her arm as more thick smoke rises up from the sizzling, dying flames. Setting the bucket down, she starts to shove her things back into the black backpack she’d brought, not bothering with the makeshift firepit. It had been cheap and easy to assemble, and she could always make another.

She slings the bag onto her back, pulling her damp hair up into a high, messy ponytail to get it off of her while her body temperature goes back to normal. Ducking out of the building, she heads back toward town - back to her apartment in River Dale - keeping to the small alleyways that cut through the warehouse district. It’s a gamble, choosing to take the alleys rather than the main streets cutting their way through the district. On the one hand, she’s less likely to be spotted in the alleyways.. On the other hand, there could be someone with more nefarious intentions than herself thinking the exact same thing.

It’s a risk she’s willing to take, and with a prayer to her ancient gods, she slips quietly into the dark.
