The Tubes

"The Tubes" is the colloquial name for an unregulated region of Gate Town constructed primarily of primitive pressurized tube habitat modules. It is the largest region of its kind, having grown from a small group of modules installed and quickly abandoned by a mercenary company. Many arguably dubious enterprises of various kinds have set up their own modules attached to the Tubes over the years, only to then abandon them, a major contribution to the region's growth.


Most of the Tubes are modules with diameters between 5 and 10 meters and lengths between 10 and 20 meters. There are very few larger modules, making the overall space very labyrinthine and claustrophobic. This is compounded by some modules having been sealed off due to hull breaches, contamination and other problems, and getting to an adjacent module can take significant time in some cases. There are between 5 and 10 layers of modules stacked upon each other in most areas.   Inside the modules, improvised housing and market stands dominate the picture, with some modules being used in their entirety as business locations or better houses, and sometimes larger groups of joined modules being used as bases of operation for more powerful individuals and organizations.   Unlike most other areas of Gate Town, the Tubes generally do not have any artificial gravity.
