Everything has a price.

Especially in New Chicago.

When the Corps finally decided to rebuild they thought it would be easy. The bugs were eradicated, the city in ruins, and radiation everywhere. Rolling up their sleaves they went to work and laid a new foundation… A mile up.

Unfortunately when we broke ground for the central spire we quickly found out that the bugs weren’t exactly gone. Mages were brought in to fight off the infestation but once we got high enough they left us well enough alone. That didn’t bode well for the crews left on the ground though.

Today, New Chicago is sprawling and continuing to grow. Those of us topside have no reason to head to the old city, or think of it at all… And honestly who would want that dreg up here anyway. In a city of millions who has time to worry about the lowest of the low.
