    3. New Oskana Harbor (Harbor)

    Post  Victor on Wed Jul 16, 2014 2:55 pm

    Description:
    Much of New Oskana’s industry occurs along its harbor, from small-time import-export to huge freight ventures. For many transplants to New Oskana, especially among non-native English speakers, the harbor is where they first find work in the city. The city’s automotive manufacturing plant sends many of its cars out by ship, as well, and its dockside warehouses are the largest in New Oskana. The whole of the harbor has a reputation as a place where people don’t see anything they’re not supposed to and crossing the strike line can cost a man his life.

    Background:
    Most would not be surprised to know that the harbor in New Oskana was the home of much of the criminal underworld since it was constructed in the late 1920's Of course while the criminal underworld has changed greatly over the years the activity on the docks has not. The main focus here is on the Trade in slaves. Many believe that this action was stopped long ago, but there is a thriving trade still moving through New Oskana. It has expanded a little as The Koreans have added a trade in organ legging and smuggling antiquities. Police have raided the docks many times and have placed an untold number of undercover officers there, but so far all attempts to shut these people down have met with failure. Because of this the docks have gained a reputation for violence and extreme racial tension. On the darker side, stories of Satanists providing for these services have also surfaced several times over the last 50 years.

    Locations:
    The Longshoremen's Pub:
    When it comes to crime there is no place in New Oskana that has had a more popular or long history. Dirty deals are the norm here and if it needs to get through the city it comes through this place at some point. We have no idea who runs the place or even what the goals may have been. Though as far as we can tell it was here that the mortals began to organize their criminal organizations against several of the cities more illustrious members.

    4. Airport (Airport)

    Post  Victor on Wed Jul 16, 2014 2:55 pm

    Description:
    Most of New Oskana’s tourist traffic arrives by train or boat, and the addition of PGM in the late 1950s felt very much like an afterthought. The airport serves international carriers, but only a few flights from foreign countries stop here. The whole neighborhood has a feel of unrecognized potential — the airport could probably be bigger and busier, if more effort and money were spent convincing airlines to serve the area, and the low-income housing around the airport could be less violent and disheveled, if the residents felt any pride in ownership. For the most part, though, the airport and its neighborhood are “good enough” for what they’re supposed to be. The runways of the airport are notoriously soft, probably as a result of having been built on inadequate structural support.

    Background:
    Darryl Thieme was a detective who made commissioner and eventually became mayor of New Oskana in the early 1950s. He laid the groundwork for the introduction of the airport in hopes that it would be a tremendous boon to the local economy, but that never quite happened. Sure, the place is accessible to the airlines, but it’s generally cheaper and less difficult to come in by land or sea. As well, the building of the airport itself marks an ugly chapter in New Oskana’s history of corruption, as its construction was a deal brokered between the city commissioner and his cousin to the financial benefit of both men. The airport was built cheaply, and it shows, from its ramshackle shops to its interminable security lines all funneling through a single station.

    5. Red Beach (Power Plant)

    Post  Victor on Wed Jul 16, 2014 2:56 pm

    Description:
    The Red Beach Electrical Power Plant and its surrounding residential and low-density commercial district are so named for the high clay content of the sand making up the beach. Cynics suggest that it’s named for the "red tide", an oddity in a prairie water body thatoccasionally poisons life found in the water, which can be poisonous to those who eat them. The power plant is often a scapegoat for various ecological problems New Oskana weathers, but it’s much less of a contributor to environmental contamination than the heavy industry that’s the city’s stock in trade. nevertheless, this misapplied pseudoscience is the cause of much of Red Beach’s coarse reputation.

    Background:
    The Red Beach Electrical Power Plant was constructed in the early 1920's to provide electricity for the growing city. Back then its construction was some ways out of town and downriver which many attribute to the early pollution of the river. Today the Red Beach Electrical Power Plant is sorely out of date and taxed almost daily beyond its capacities to generate energy for New Oskana. The Red Beach Power Company sold the power plant to Sask Power in 1976 after large fines both provincially and federally forced the company to close its doors. Sask Power has opened numerous satellite plants, but the hastily erected electrical grid is likewise insufficient to handle the city’s power needs. Current Sask Power projections say the cities power will not be able to meet demands until 2076, assuming the cities economy does not collapse before then.
