= DUE TO THE THEME OF CHANGE, THE MAP WILL BE UPDATED CONTINUALLY. * =


* Or whenever MK gets off of her butt to update it. This map provides a general shape of the city. As it continues to be updated, please use the wiki for information on the setting.


Nautilus is a fluidic city, adjusting and changing to the thoughts, unconscious desires, and dreams of its inhabitants. While the basic layout of the city remains the same, everything else, from the architecture to the flora and fauna to the sky itself is in constant flux. As such, it can be a little hard to keep up with!

= THE HEART OF NAUTILUS = is obviously the center of the city, protected by a special seal amid the Central Plaza. Due to past events, this place has been marked off-limits. A perimeter of arrows act as a barrier to keep curious (and persistent) Wakened out of trouble.

DESCRIPTION

The city is built on a hill, with the emperor’s tower crowning the peak and standing far above all other buildings. Surrounding the tower are twelve smaller towers, one for each cardinal direction and two in between those four. Stemming from each tower is a road that goes straight down the hill, like the spokes of a wheel. There are also smaller streets in-between.

There are two additional MAIN roads that start at the eastern and western towers and cascade down the hill in a spiral pattern, like the shape of a nautilus (hence the city’s name). These are the main roads, and most businesses will be built along there.

Flowing down from the tower and alongside the streets and in between the white houses are little rivulets and streams.

At the intersection of the four cardinal spokes and the the third spiral down of the two main roads are the Plazas: The Plaza of Waterfalls to the east, the Plaza of Whirlwinds to the North, the Plaza of Infernos to the West, and the Plaza of the Fallen. Each Plaza bears sculptures that correspond to their names: swirling spirals in the north, running waterfalls in the east, sculpted flames in the west, and what look like the stumps of magnificent trees in the south. Recently, each plaza has been modified by the Elric Brothers, fitted with a teleportation array for more convenient travel back and forth between districts. This comes complete with a sign listed with instructions on how to use them.

In addition, the four districts of the city are named thus: Waterfalls, Whirlwinds, Infernos and Fallen, and all buildings and décor bear this motif. Buildings at the top of the hill, closer to the tower, are grander and larger, and they get smaller and more cramped towards the bottom, but remain nice and spacious. Nautilus is a comfortable city.

Interestingly, the architecture varies vastly; while the 'default' is an Art Nouveau with Gothic and Greek elements, the shapes of buildings change based on the origins of the city's inhabitants. See the State of the Game posts for more details.

At the edge, there is just a white void. Wandering into this area leaves you with a sense of vertigo, and a strong desire to return to the city. If you continue to press on into the white void, you will slowly lose sense of your body, and feel disconnected from it. this can be corrected by simply willing yourself to return to the city. In addition, if you enter this zone and will yourself home, you will return there instantaneously, but please see the FAQ entry on returning home for more information. If that is unclear, you can contact the moderators by commenting on that post (or the mod contact post).

Currently, there is no marketplace, or any semblance of an economy anywhere. Food can be easily willed into being merely by desiring it; but if that is not desired then there is a large fruit and vegetable garden in the District of the Fallen. In addition, there are a large number of birds throughout the city - mostly pigeons and doves, but also a few falcons, some starlings, and other creatures. Plants of all kinds can be found throughout the city, from many disparate locations - including such anachronisms as palm trees growing next to pine. The vast majority of plants grow in the District of the Fallen and the District of Waterfalls.

Days and nights are technically twelve hours long each. In most of the city, the sky is a clear blue during the day and star-filled at night, with one sun and one moon, save in the District of Infernos, where the sky is red with two small moons at night. In the District of Whirlwinds and wherever Pyramid Head is, there is thick fog during the hours of dawn and dusk.

In the past, the so-called Emperor, Cyrus, was an androgynous sexless being with a voice that sounded like rushing water. It kept a blindfold over its face at all times and wore a dark blue-black robe that faded to blue-white at the bottom in stylized wave patterns with a hood. It did not wear shoes. Cyrus’s hair was a strange whitish-blue color. Characters could always understand everything Cyrus says regardless of native language, ability to hear, or even intelligence, unless Cyrus willed it otherwise. Any text written //Like this//, (that is, bold and bracketed by forward slashes) indicated that whatever is being spoken or written was in the Speech, the language of creation itself. The Speech sounded lyrical and elegant, but more than that, each word contained in itself the perfect and absolute idea of the object being described, to an unfathomable point of precision; thus, while the words might be incomprehensible, hearing the Speech generated a flood of images and ideas, so it was often understandable on a surface level to all who heard it.

LANDMARKS FOR NORTHERN DISTRICT:

Lapin Angelique Store (North East)
- A Gothic Lolita store originally from the 'The World Ends With You'-verse.

Yggdrasil, the Great Library (North, to the left of the Northern Gate)
-A Library, conveniently located up in a giant tree. More information can be found here. (http://thewake-mods.livejournal.com/4937.html#cutid1)

Furman's Bar (Center)
-The bartender is pretty clearly a construct - he has a face and is generally pleasant. His robes are trimmed in blue and the symbols he bears are nautilus shells. HMM. YOU CAN GET ANY DRINK YOU CAN IMAGINE HERE - if it exists, you can order it. This includes such delicacies as refined energon, oil, and various weird Star Wars delicacies; the bar is also sized for all residents of Nautilus, and yet somehow this doesn't seem awkward.

Ratchet's Medbay (Center, to the right)
-Place to get patched up, pretty much a Hospital. Welcome to Cybertronians and organics.

Cybertronian Buildings (To the right of the Medbay)
-...Just what it says on the tin.

Case de Sumdac & Bee (Near the Medbay as well)
-Was previous home to Sari Sumdac and Bumblebee. Neither live there, but it still is fully furnished.

Jamie's Laundromat (On the very end of the North and Eastern boarder)
-...A Laundromat. Don't put fish in the washing machines. Jamie hates that.

Titans Tower
-A giant tower (http://www.freewebs.com/steppingstones333/Raven/Titans%20Tower.jpg) in the shape of a T. Located on somewhat of a hill.

Sears Tower (destroyed)
-...Nothing much there now.

---------

MISC. things particular to the Northern District.

-Some of the water in the District of Whirlwinds now glows orange at night. In addition, there is a staircase leading underground to a small cavern. The walls are lined with shelves, filled with books, and it is lit by a warm orange glow. The books, however, are all blank.

-Fog in the evenings and mornings in the North district. It's CREEPY fog.

Lelouch and Suzaku's home is in the Northern District, a little left of center. They now have a large storage building behind it for their Knightmare Frames.
