    Blackhaven



    [​IMG]

    BLACKHAVEN PARK

    Located on the west side of Blackhaven, Blackhaven Park is one spot of lush greenery in the midst of what many consider the bad side of Pandopolis. Despite its graffiti-stained buildings and benches, it’s relatively safe in the daytime, with families spending the day there with their children. It’s dangerous to traverse at night, however. In the middle of the park, there is a stone fountain, which often serves as a spot for charities, farmers markets, or other local events.


    [​IMG]

    DOLOR

    An underground nightclub that caters almost exclusively to non-humans, Dolor sits in what was once an abandoned warehouse. Patrons can indulge in food, drink, music, and gambling -- if they're feeling lucky. The entrances are hidden in graffiti -- you need to know how to get in to enter, but with no cover charge, reasonable prices, and exclusivity, it's a secret worth knowing.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA THEATER

    The theater hosts a large variety of plays, from satires to the classics. Ticket prices are low to attract the audience, and a way for some folks to make honest money.



    [​IMG]

    THE CLOCKWORK LOTUS

    Utilizing its old steampipe frame, The Clockwork Lotus is an upcycled innovation of another age. Featuring an industrial, Asian-influenced, steampunk design, this labor of love offers a unique aesthetic at reasonable prices. To boot, the hotel is nearly entirely self run by steam-powered automatons, and its Robo-Ramen attached restaurant is gaining traction for manufacturing new takes on a traditional dish, as well as its plucky steam-powered chefs!


    [​IMG]

    BUTCHER'S

    Butcher's is a haven for anyone who wishes to avoid using the services of the hospital. For a price, just about any injury can be treated, no questions asked. With an ordinary front, Butcher's has built up a reputation in the underground. The owner herself is a stocky bespectacled woman in her late thirties, known only as 'Doc' or 'Butcher', with unclear motivations. Willing to haggle and barter, her reliability as a surgeon depends entirely on how much you're willing to pay, and she seldom makes that clear to her patients.


    [​IMG]

    THE LIVING CANVAS TATTOO PARLOUR

    In a nondescript building with just a simple sign reading 'tattoos' to indicate that it's anything other than an abandoned building, Living Canvas offers a wide variety of tattoos at a cheap price. Despite the location and exterior, inside, the parlor has a cozy atmosphere and various pieces of art ranging from simple sketches of possible tattoos to extravagant paintings.


    [​IMG]

    DAYE INVESTIGATIONS

    Small, run down building with a new sign out front saying "Daye Investigations". Inside is a small, run down office over a garage that is currently empty.




    [​IMG]

    THE QUEEN'S COURT

    Upscale, invite only brothel and escort service run by a woman only known as the "Queen". Anyone with enough money can find exactly what they're looking for here. Secretly also a thieves' den and a place of trade for blackmarket items.

    Midcourt



    [​IMG]

    THE GALACTIC GARDEN

    On the inside, the Galactic Garden is much bigger than its size suggests, where flowers, plants, small trees and just about any flora imaginable line the walls, coat the counters and shelves, and dangle from the ceiling. Everything is cataloged and separated by type, and by their world of origin. Flora coolers are located near the back of the shop, and there are an assortment of bulbs and seeds available for purchase. More dangerous or exotic variants can be found in the back room upon request. Deliveries and customized arrangements are also available.


    [​IMG]

    MCGILL LAW

    A single-level Spanish-style office building in the Midcourt district where those who are seeking legal (or illegal) assistance can visit with @James McGill, attorney at law. The small building consists of a medium-sized lobby containing a seating area, a 400-gallon aquarium, and a reception room behind the far wall. Past the lobby lies a closed-off hallway leading to two office rooms.


    [​IMG]

    MIND OVER METAL

    This forge is decorated in the elven style, with some Tengwar letters painted on the walls and declaring the name of the forge along with English on the outside. A variety of works hang on every available space of the inside and outside of the open-air structure. Often filled with noise and smoke, the mind and hands of @Fëanor are busy here seemingly all the time. With some open work stations, it is clear that Fëanor would accept other smiths or even an apprentice or two.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA COMMUNITY RADIO

    A humble little radio station which broadcasts to the entire Pandopolis Region, into parts of Centria, and even radios in The Dread Wastes can pick up fuzzy signals. Its Midcourt headquarters is small but gets the job done.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA FIRE STATION

    Equipped with two old-fashioned fire engines, with room for expansions.



    [​IMG]

    PANDORA LIBRARY

    One of the largest buildings in Pandopolis, and the one place not taken from another world. It contains books from countless worlds, plenty of them written in languages no one can read.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA TIMES

    Pandora's daily newspaper. Providing Pandora with the latest and greatest (and sometimes worst) news. Can be found around Pandopolis in newspaper bins for a low-low fee!


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA TRAIN STATION

    Pandora's railway station, café and gift shop.



    [​IMG]

    POPPY'S DINER

    A retro-modern take on the 1950s American diner with a chrome exterior and giant fluorescents to really turn heads. Inside, chrome ceilings, checkerboard floors, and deep red leather seating maintain the aesthetic. The usual American fare such as hamburgers, sandwiches, fries, and milkshakes are served. Breakfast (pancakes, bacon, and eggs, etc) runs from 7 am to 11 am, and one can also stop by for Poppy’s homemade desserts, including fruit pies, cakes, and doughnuts. Sock hop dances are hosted every other Friday evening!

    River Town



    [​IMG]

    CROSSING KNIGHT ACADEMY

    Located on the side of the river in River Town, the Crossing Knight is the city’s premier medieval combat training academy. Offering a surprisingly large selection of lessons for the inherited building's small size, the expert trainers offer lessons to anyone interested. But minors under sixteen must seek adult permission and supervision!


    [​IMG]

    FREESIDE RESEARCH CLINIC

    The Freeside Research Clinic is devoted to finding cures and other medical advances for the good of all Pandora. Run by @Arcade Gannon, it is a small clinic of only a few doctors, but has the potential to grow much larger while following a strict code of ethics.


    [​IMG]

    THE BAZAAR

    The bazaar is always a bustle of activity. Located on the eastern end of River Town, this is Pandopolis’ best outdoor market. The bazaar only closes for heavy snow or rain or other bad weather, but there's always something new and strange to be found. People can find anything from meal ingredients to high-tech robots to magical artifacts here.


    [​IMG]

    7TH HEAVEN

    7th Heaven is located in the center of River Street. It is a modern day bar and restaurant that serves freshly made food and premium quality drinks. This establishment has a large oblong main floor and is open to people of all ages. The building itself has two floors and about four bedrooms, the menu itself is based on traditional foods and comes with only the best alcohol around. So come on in for a good time and feel like you're in Heaven! A 7th Heaven!


    [​IMG]

    THE EAGLE AND THE DRAGON

    "A Dornishman, a Noldo, and a Food Historian open up a bar..." What sounds like the beginning of a joke (or the recipe for daily arguments) is actually the story of Pandopolis’ premier inn, catering to the tastes of the city’s more... historical citizens. A small wooden building with a bustling kitchen, a cheerful fireplace, and a floor lined with rushes, it is your classic fantasy tavern, only better. Providing rooms to travelers, as well as serving food and the finest wines, ales and meads available, The Eagle and the Dragon means to bring a taste of home to its patrons.


    [​IMG]

    ILLEGALLY SWEET

    A semi-modern bakery with all your basic needs, but prides itself on its sweets, treats, chocolate, and baked deserts! There is a secret living space for the owner to use as they'd please. It's the place to go if your sweet-tooth ever acts up!


    [​IMG]

    LITTLE NERO'S

    Little Nero's is a small brick oven pizzeria run by a horned goat demon named Nero who cooks his pizza with brimstone instead of coals for a nice crispy crust and gooey cheese. While traditional, the pizzeria has oil fryers and ovens for other foods, even a salad station. And of course, its specialty is its spicy foods. Such as the extremely hot Nero's Fiddles, six wings covered in a special bright red spicy sauce, or The Burning Roman, a spicy pizza with mozzarella and pepper jack cheese and an assortment of spicy ingredients.


    [​IMG]

    RIVERBOAT CAFE

    A small cafe located right along the river. They have an extensive international menu with incredibly affordable and even generous prices. The quality doesn't suffer for it either!


    [​IMG]

    RIVERSTREET BAKERY

    River Street Bakery is the prime place to go if you are looking for a fulfilling craving for that sweet tooth, or just need fresh bread. It supplies the freshest baked goods available, and the best sweets in the land. It's almost as if they were created by something inhuman. The bakery has a front counter where you can look at the different goods available and order. There is also tea and coffee available that is freshly brewed, and a dining area to sit at and eat your cake.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA COLLEGE

    Standing out from its surroundings, this Edwardian Castle of red brick is Pandora’s official college. Offering classes and optional boarding to everyone from age 16 and up, it is an active community of learning. Teachers come from all worlds and a variety of subjects are taught here, from the strange to the mundane. There is also a large training facility located on the underground levels.


    [​IMG]

    LE GAMAAR

    A cinema, with style split between the 1940s and the late 2000s. Screens 1 - 3 have been converted to use 1940s technology and show films from or before 1950. Screens 4 - 6 have been left with their 2000s technology intact and show any films from 1950 onwards.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA POST OFFICE

    Based in Pandopolis, members of the Pandora Post Office pride themselves on delivering letters, packages and more across the entirety of Pandora -- even to those living in the Cosmic Wilderness and the Dread Wastes -- in a speedy and reliable manner, with outposts in every City Hub.


    [​IMG]

    THE GRAND ELUSION

    A prime resort for a luxurious vacation, complete with a casino, hotel, and escort service all in one. Designed to be a modern and exquisite coastal experience, this resort celebrates all things fun out in the summer sun and fun behind closed doors.

    Silverpool



    [​IMG]

    JENNY'S PLACE

    Jenny's place is a 1920s style speakeasy with a blackjack room in back. The building is small and looks like it's a slightly fancier basement bar from 1920s America with red velvet seats, a selection of vintage whiskies, scotches, gins, moonshines and tonic cocktails. The main scenery of the place is a portrait of a dark-haired woman in a scarf with a lip ring and a small but noticeable scar on her lower lip with a simple golden plaque that reads Jenny.


    [​IMG]

    MECHANIC'S OUTPOST

    Mechanic and repair service based in Pandopolis. You can purchase refurbished items here as well as getting your electronics repaired (everything from cars to radio's). All jobs and technology taken on! Mechanics working here may also be hired out by businesses or individuals where required.


    [​IMG]

    LECTER PSYCHIATRY

    A large house which serves as both home and office for Doctor @Hannibal Lecter. A dividing staircase separates Dr. Lecter’s private quarters from an open, comfortable waiting area. The offices themselves are warm with rich colors and a welcoming, inviting atmosphere designed to put patients at ease.


    [​IMG]

    THE BOMB

    Pandora's first casino, located on the edge of Silverpool. While at first glance it seems like exactly what you get, below the surface lie hidden and dangerous rooms where illegal deals and bets occur amongst Pandora's underworld leaders.

    Tavoie Borough



    [​IMG]

    LUX NIGHTCLUB

    The Club's retro environment where vintage grandeur blends with modern opulence, is created to be the spitting image of the nightclub Lucifer ran back in his world. A large sign on the wall writes “Lux” and numerous lights on the ceiling allow mood changes. There are three levels, connected through a wooden staircase. A piano with tale occupies the middle of the ground level surrounded by sofas and tables while on the far corner is the main bar. Additional tables and the DJ's booth are placed on the second level. The third level is an empty space for guests.


    [​IMG]

    APPLETREE TATTOO STUDIO

    Vintage-styled and eerily always filled with the distant smell of apples. Its interior resembles a museum of curiosities at first glance and a robin redbreast in a gothic-styled cage announces visitors but otherwise never makes a sound. True to its name, a big bronze sculpture of an apple tree stretches across the main part of the studio. Tattoos are offered in all designs and colors at, oddly, always varying prices. It is said that those who are willing to pay for the art with something other than money are in special favor amongst the artists.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA ANTIQUES

    Antiques sold from the past, present and future! It's best to not question it, and simply enjoy the weird smell and large collection of lamps. New stock weekly!



    [​IMG]

    CANDYLAND PLAYGROUND

    This playground doesn't just look like candy, it is literally made of candy and sweets of all types! It's tasty and sweet, the candy seemingly growing back overnight if somebody nibbles on it now and then. It includes a graham cracker tree house with a chocolate-topped roof, a candy-cane jungle gym, pixie stick sandbox, licorice trees with candy leaves, and cupcake benches embellished with frosted patterns. This location does not melt in the heat or summer, nor is it brittle enough to break in the winter.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA SHELTER

    A shelter for Pandora's newly arrived and homeless. A safe place to stay while still adjusting to the world, or while you're down on your luck. Provides meals twice a day by volunteers.



    [​IMG]

    PANDORA'S PUB

    Pandora’s most well-known pub, located at the southern end of the borough. Features a three pool tables, a dart board, as well as bottomless nuts provided at the bar.

    Tower Hill



    [​IMG]

    PANDORA HOSPITAL

    Pandora Town's hospital stands on the edge of the Tower Hill. Very futuristic in design, it has shiny walls, sharp edges, and clinical white down to an art. It offers free treatment to the inhabitants of Pandora that find themselves incapacitated in some way, regardless of whether they have citizenship or not.


    [​IMG]

    PANDORA SWIMMING POOL AND LEISURE FACILITY

    A swimming pool, gym and sauna facilities serving Pandopolis. There are three pools; one is Olympic sized, one is smaller and warmer for those who want a more relaxing swim, the other is a child's pool which is much more shallow than the others. Lessons are offered here for people wanting to learn to swim, as well as those wanting to practice and relax. There are steam and sauna facilities for those who want to use them as well as a well-equipped gym.


    [​IMG]

    KATSUKI ICE ARENA

    A charming, modern complex, Katsuki Arena has everything for your ice skating needs! Including a modest skate rental price, two hockey-regulation rinks, a small arcade room, party room, and locker rooms. Free Skates are Monday through Saturday for one hour at noon, 3pm and 5pm. You may also rent out rinks for party events, or for sporting events. Free Skates offer lessons with the arena's owner, Viktor Nikiforov!


    [​IMG]

    WAYNE TECH

    One of the two main tech companies included in Pandora, Wayne Tech develops advances in medical, biological, and home improvement technology for the public and government use.

    Wilderness



    [​IMG]

    BAT SANCTUARY

    Bats are an important part of an ecosystem as they pollinate hundreds of plants and keep the air free from insects. To keep them off of the endangered species list, a group of vampires opened up a bat sanctuary. It has enough space to shelter these creatures and to take care of the sick ones. The sanctuary is at the same times used as a headquarter and safe house for the local vampire clan and serves as a cover-up.


    [​IMG]

    ARBOR FALLS

    One of the more unique Nature Parks in Pandora, this kilometer tall tree was grown by a powerful mage and is large enough to hold elaborate parties or multiple tourist groups. It floats above a lake, with a magical portal sending fresh water cascading down over the top of the tree. They culminate into elegant waterfalls, cascading back down into the lake below. It holds many varieties of unique wildlife, including Hawk-Monkies and Boa-corns -- seven food long constrictor snakes with unicorn horns.


    [​IMG]

    TALAN UPON THE TREES

    The Talan is located in a wooded grove on the borders of The Dread Wastes, standing nearly the height of an eight-story building. A ladder with wooden steps and two lengths of rope on each side gives access to the talan through a trap door in the floor. Two large platforms surround the trunks of the trees connected by a small wooden bridge with carved railings. The platforms are constructed of smooth teak just like the balustrade which encircles the platforms.


    [​IMG]

    AQUARIUM

    Located beyond the main city is a tall, oval building serving as Pandopolis’ own aquarium! Home to a number of sea creatures from across several worlds and realms, there is certain to be something here you’ve never seen before!


    [​IMG]

    GRETTA LAKE

    Close to the Modernland border lies a large, serene lake. At first glance there’s nothing strange about it, the waters impossibly blue and calm on sunny days. But beware when ripples carry across the surface, because rumor has it a sea monster lurks in the depths below.


    [​IMG]

    WYNTER WOODS

    A patch of woods stretching for acres off to the west looks normal around the edges, the outskirts full of thick evergreen trees. But the further into the woods you go the colder the air becomes, the foliage burdened by mounds of snow or covered in ice. At times, a great blizzard rages out from the center of the woods.


    [​IMG]

    IMPERIAL IMPORTS

    Located near the border of Apocalypse land, this shop specializes in imports and trades from the neighboring regions. While many are gathered through legal means, the owners are less than reputable and requests can be made behind closed doors for illegal goods.


    [​IMG]

    THE BOTTOMLESS PIT

    A strange phenomenon located near the border to Centria, a gaping hole several meters in diameter is cut into the ground. Light will only reach so far, and there is no bottom in site. Occasionally something that was tossed into the bottomless pit will be spat out of the sky, right over the pit, only for gravity to kick in and drag it back down again. Rumor has it that anyone or anything that falls into the pit is spat back out in random places across Pandora.


    [​IMG]

    ROCKET TOWN

    North of Pandopolis is Rocket Town, a small community built up around a seemingly dysfunctional and broken down old rocket. The rocket itself has been turned into a cafe, selling a variety of “space age” foods. The surrounding buildings are old and weathered and are inhabited by a mixture of humans and rusty old can-shaped robots, with new ones emerging from the rocket itself every once in a while


    [​IMG]

    ALBRIDGE FARM

    One of the largest farms in the Pandopolis region, Albridge Farm trades produce in bulk all over Pandora. The fields stretch on forever, with a cozy marketplace setup near the main road for people passing by. A large corn maze is a popular attraction, where people can get lost for hours. Beware of the scarecrows after dark, however. For some say they come alive at night, when the farm is quiet.
