THE CITY OF THAMESIS

Capitol of the Kingdom of Albion, home of the Royal House and the primary cluster of the britomart conglomerate. Currently ranked the most dangerous city in the Whole Earth.

 

THE BLACK CITY

Home to the Royal Palaces and all property owned by the Heraldic Houses. The Subjects; those still loyal to the monarchy, continue to live in these areas, holding onto a way of life that preceded the appearance of the britomart. However the lustre of its former glories has faded since the Great War with many areas either being sold off to the britomart, falling into ruin to be claimed by the Green wastes or squatted by the ‘Peasants’ of the increasingly lawless Red City.

 

THE RED CITY

This ‘Planet of slums’ grew out of areas undeveloped by the britomart after the Great War. Over the years the population has boomed to create a thriving but dangerous community of the disenfranchised; an eclectic mix of radicals, criminals and addicts give those struggling to make an honest living a bad name. A strong community spirit exists here, this is a place where people look after their own and have no time for the patronising britomart or the aloof House, who have done little for them.

 

THE WHITE CITY

Home to the britomart and its Subscribers. It is an Ecopolis made up of concentric arrangements of glass and steel towers, inter-connecting walkways, hanging gardens, geothermic generators and solar panels. The standard of living is unsurpassed anywhere else in Thamesis but the micro-cities have caused controversy being built on top of rather than renovating older parts of the city. Although in theory anyone can join the britomart it has been criticised as a segregated and exclusive community.
