The City Square The City Square is, quite frankly, huge. It is in fact not just one square, but several interlocking ones, all massive in their own right. The square is comprised mainly of shops and smarter residences, and is one of the nicest places in Nether City. The houses here cost a lot, and in the main only high ranking officials or other well off people can afford to purchase a home near, or on, a City Square. Any Shop you wish for can be found in at least one City Square, and generally there are at least a few similar shops scattered around the squares. The City Squares and their few surrounding streets are spotless, maintained to a very high standard by both the City Guard and hired Cleaners. Likewise, the Squares are almost bereft of any crime save the occasional shoplifter, due to the high Guard presence.
City Streets The streets of Nether City are for the most part dank and dingy, the narrow spaces left between buildings. The sun never reaches the recesses of the dark alleys, save at dusk and dawn. These areas are rich with litter and other refuse while the main roads offer clean surrounds due to maintenance by the City's council and other volunteers.
The City Walls Huge walls surround the Nether, a solid obstruction for attacking demons to back up the ever-present psychic barrier. The walls, at their highest point, stand fifty metres high, and at their lowest, are thirty. Their width is a constant ten meters, in order to give any-body protecting the city room to manoeuvre. Every twenty metres or so there stands a watch tower, with a ballistae waiting to be operated inside. The Walls are constantly patrolled by guards, who form a fraction of the standing army of the Nether.
The WasteLand Outside of Nether City, the world is a barren wasteland, devoid of most life. Monstrous creatures roam the Wasteland, hunting down human nomads that also wander the barren place. Also outside are tiny communities, mainly in mountain areas or other rural areas, which have as yet gone unnoticed by the monsters and demons which stalk the Wasteland. Even more common than monsters in the Wasteland are demons, which are a constant threat to any who leave Nether City, and which rove the Wasteland in groups of hundreds, searching for humans to prey upon. Outside of the Nether, no-where is safe.
