  • Black Rock Hydroelectric Dam

    Upriver, out of the city proper, lies the Black Rock Dam. It’s situated just where the Slate spills out of the coast mountains, forming a dark and icy lake between two peaks. The Slate pours out of the dam in a huge waterfall, crashing downslope until it …

  • Caris Island

    Forming the divide between the Slate River’s north and south channels, Caris Island is flat, muddy and water-worn. It’s close-clustered, but low, since the threat of erosion and earthquakes means you can’t build anything tall here. No particular gang …

  • Slate Hill

    Famously, the worst neighbourhood in the city. In Slate Hill, the businesses have bars in the windows, and mostly the cops won’t even get out of their cars—if they go there at all. The gangs run Slate Hill. It also has the city’s highest black population, …

  • Chinatown

    Delta City’s Little China straddles the northern channel of the Slate, lying partly in the Narrows and partly on the north shore. It’s not a rich neighbourhood. However, while it technically has no less crime than its neighbours, Slate Hill and the …

  • The Docks

    A shrunken shadow of its former self, this is the holdout of Delta City’s crippled industrial sector. Delta Harbour is tucked into the north shore of the river, protected by a breakwater from the storms that come through every winter. Though diminished, …

  • Verdant Peaks

    The Beverly Hills of Delta City. Built on the steep hills forming the southern mouth of the Slate River, Verdant Peaks has since the 50’s been the bastion of the moneyed in Delta. The winding roads exist as glorified, extended driveways, as the area is …

  • Downtown

    To some, the reason for the city’s existence; to others, the worst area of all. Upriver of the Rapids, Delta City leaps suddenly skyward: founded on more solid rock than downstream, the buildings here can rise a hundred storeys or more. The financial …

  • The Rapids

    A small but densely-textured neighbourhood, the Rapids are a bit of a historical relic. There was once a great deal of important infrastructure here—but that was a hundred years ago. Once upon a time, during the gold rushes, a lot of traffic moved on the …

  • University District

    Perhaps the only thriving neighbourhood in the city, the University District is fairly low-crime and wealthy. The segment of its population that isn’t composed of starving students is, for the most part, comfortably middle-class. The University provides …

  • North Shore

    People live here if they work downtown, but can’t afford to live there or on the South Shore. It’s bad, but not as bad as Slate Hill, and it shades into some semi-respectable neighbourhoods closer to Downtown. [[Infamous Places | Infamous Places]] [[ …

  • The Narrows

    After Caris Island, the Slate breaks up into a myriad of narrow channels. This forms a tightly-clustered archipelago, and it is the poorest neighbourhood in the city. Because of their shallow depth and cramped, meandering waterways, the Narrows—also …

  • South Shore

    This is one of the more “normal” neighbourhoods in Delta. It’s low-income for the most part, except as it shades west into Verdant Peaks and you get into the upper-middle-class neighbourhoods. The rest of it is tight residential, some business, and a lot …

  • Samson Valley

    A strung-out and depressing suburb that forms a triangle with Slate Hill and Carson. Historically poorer than the neighbourhoods along the river, the Valley has always been less desirable that other districts. In other respects, it’s similar to Slate Hill …

  • Carson

    A shitty town just north of Slate Hill. There are no jobs, nothing to do, and even the gangs are sad and impotent. Going north, or towards the coast, you get factories and industrial installations, but eventually these run out and there’s just miles of …

  • Sojourner's Isle

    This inhospitable rock is positioned mid-stream in the Slate, just where it branches to part around Caris Island. Distinct from the island is Sojourner’s Isle, or, as it’s often called more recently, Lancaster Island. This is because in the 1980s, the …

  • Slate Hill Cemetary

    Older than the rest of the neighbourhood, the cemetary was for a long time the only thing on the Hill. Explorers and prospectors in unmarked graves have been exhumed and replaced, over the years, with younger inhabitants. In the midst of gang territory, …
