Geography


Map: Vetropolis and nearby islands.
Map: Vetropolis and nearby islands.
Vetropolis is a large island with a couple small mountains, and the Sunnyside River? that slices the island in half. The Northern half of the island was originally comprised of deserts and grasslands, but has been terraformed over time to be highly urbanized. The land on the South side of the river is mostly coniferous forest and swampland.

The island is extremely isolated from many large settlements and therefore is connected to the world with a vast network of rails?, ships, and air ships.

Architecture


The style of architecture in the city proper is highly influenced by Victorian and Beaux-Arts building styles. The majority of public high profile buildings are centered within 1 block of Vetropolis Plaza.
