The locations of the Voice of the Vespers universe are presented here.
The city is where the Proprietors live and rule the commoners. The city is sectioned off into quarters in which the Proprietors have absolute authority. Proprietors have commoners that they promote to minions or elites that serve as the quarter’s law enforcement. The stability of a quarter depends on the Proprietor. There are immaculate quarters that hold the center of culture and art, and there are destitute quarters with the commoners living in poverty. The quarters of the city include Rose, Serpent, Raven, Coral, Root, and Orrery.
The Rose Quarter
Saturdae rules the Rose quarter of the city. It has lush gardens and large mansions. The city’s wealthiest commoners live in the Rose quarter. The laws are strict, but fair, and many commoners vie for place among Saturdae’s quarter. Saturdae’s mansion residence is located here.
Saturdae lives in a mansion in the heart of the Rose Quarter. She has several minions and elites that handle the every day business of the quarter. When there are larger problems, Saturdae becomes directly involved, solving issues from domestic disputes to an all out attack from other quarters. Her mansion is nestled between other mansions and gardens in a beautiful part of the city.
The Serpent Quarter
The Serpent Quarter is the heart of the economy of the city. Most transactions pass through here at some point. Businesses, manufacturing plants, skyscrapers, and slums are all located in the Serpent Quarter. Dartagnon rules here, placing his own needs above all else, however, his orderly nature assists in the stabilization of the quarter. His headquarters is located in the center of the Serpent Quarter, and is visible from virtually everywhere within his jurisdiction.
Dartagnon Enterprises Headquarters
Dartagnon operates out of a tall skyscraper in the Serpent Quarter. He maintains his rule with well-armed minion enforcers and his two henchmen, Gemini One and Gemini Two. The headquarters houses several floors dedicated to researching the elder flex and monitoring the techniques necessary to tap the elder flex. Other floors house offices overseeing most of the city’s business dealings. Atop the tower is the crest of the Serpent Quarter and serves as a reminder of Dartagnon’s obsession with his own power.
The Coral Quarter
The Coral Quarter is where Penelope lives. She is the least involved in the ruling of her quarter than any Proprietor in the recent past. She spends her time in a warehouse by the river that cuts through the center of the city. Penelope lets her elites and minions take care of the business side of the quarter and only gets involved if she is stirred to anger.
Penelope’s warehouse is located along the river in the Coral Quarter. Her minions handle the imports and exports of the city while she spends her time pursuing some impulsive whim.
