Alchatorus and Beyond
A coastal trading port built by the Horizon corp in the California Free State south of the bay area. The town itself is tucked in a bay and rises quickly from the ocean up to a flat plateau. The streets are just short of cookie-cut and most of the buildings retain a new look. Against the ocean, a large pier runs between the streets and the water. Most of the portside buildings are warehouse with the occasional bar thrown in. As the buildings go up the hillside, they grow smaller and are obviously much cheaper investments. To the north side of the port, an airborne trolley carries cargo from the port to the road above.
Various organizations and groups populate the city. The largest of course is Horizon employees who are %70 of population. Other people include a small, tame triad presence, nomadic pirates, and people unassociated with any cause. There is a mixture of humans and metahumans and nobody much cares what you are. It is a place of open opportunity. As long as you do your job, everybody prospers.
