TriadCity Message of the Day
Along with Justice NE, a large new neighborhood called Inns of Court
will be going online, perhaps within a day or two.
Inns of Court is very loosely inspired by a real neighborhood in
London, where the legal profession was centered for a couple of centuries.
Some of the street and place names are the same as real streets and
places in London. But, the TC Inns of Court is a fictional space
based more directly on Dickens than on real geography. The descriptions
and much of the layout are taken from
rather than Google Maps.
For now, the main interest of the new neighborhood is that it enables
for Justice NE the kinds of night versus day differences which are envisioned
for the entire City. NPCs have homes to go to, so that the streets and other
public areas are populated differently by dark than by light. Pretty much
everybody moves around. There are no Pigeon Hunters standing in the same
place night and day waiting to be killed. By the end of 2008, we hope, the
entire City will be like this.
The Inns of Court area is not "complete". Most of the buildings
lack their interiors. These will be added little by little as they're needed.
Justice NE is very, very, very nearly ready. It'll be online, along with
the Inns of Court district, very shortly.
