Darkness at Bay
The Bordering Areas
The areas around Royal Bay that are not quite part of the city proper.
As one drives further and further away from the center of Royal Bay, the dense packing of peoples, people, and cars thins out into sparser businesses and residences more towards all varieties of untamed and barely tamed landscapes. Lakes and rivers dominate the land east of the city, while the north is forested foothills and small mountains. The western areas outside the city are industrial flatlands, dark and choked with smog. South of the city sits the Gulf of Mexico.
The various areas outside the city are significantly different from one another, making generic skill modifiers difficult to define. The only constant tends to be poor cell reception, perhaps reducing the effectiveness of Computer checks.
