City of Tomorrow
A city built to display the latest in technology, the future city Prime serves as headquarters for Omicron Technologies and an example for the world to see.
Stolen and Rebuilt
Prime did not start out as a fabled city of the future. It, in fact, started out as the small fishing town, Nugao, until Kent Musa would seize power from the locals. The burgeoning entrepreneur appeared suddenly one day and began to stir up local politics in his favor. With the help of The Unsworn, they used politics, bribery, and more sinister methods to wrangle control from the town leaders. Once the power transition was complete, he gave the old establishment a choice, leave on your feet or be carried out in a bag. They all chose the former, leaving Musa in control of the town and its fate.
Prime is the technology hub not just for the north, but for all of Tikor . With Omicron Technologies being the biggest producer of tech, it only made sense for Prime to be a center point for their wares. While tech as a word sounds alluring, in reality, tech encompasses a broad range of items. The corporate giant deals in items as mundane as azure powered plows, and precision-cut tools all the way to mechanized suits used for construction and long distance communication equipment. These items are wanted all over the world, and Prime is a guaranteed place to find it. While Prime carries a wide range of vendors, its hard not to notice the prevalence of Omicron owned equipment.
Azure Exchange Market
While Prime is not a major producer of Azurean, it is, however, a major trader in it. With the precious stone being a worldwide resource but divided along faction lines, Prime has made itself the neutral trading zone. Held in a large clocktower overlooking Prime, the Azure Exchange Market (AEM) is where major sellers and buyers of Azurean venture to change their fortunes. In many cases, Azurean may be scarce in one area, but abundant in a more remote location. The AEM allows the wealthy to pay to have Azurean moved toward them, or in some cases away. While the Alpha Mali swear upon the validity of the exchange, rumors have long been abounding that the pirate group, Heaven's Fall, is responsible for much of the delivering.
The Ghost Market
While Prime has become a central hub for legitimate trade, it also has a dark side. A market where you can procure a variety of forbidden and restricted items. Rumors say this is where a number of illegally gained relics and mythical Godheads go up for sale to the highest bidder. While the existence of the market is known throughout the land, it's so well hidden that to the vast majority of people think it's just an urban legend. A fairy tale criminals tell themselves and little more. But those who have the right connections and the right currency, the Ghost Market is theirs to explore.
Between deities, faith healers, priests, and spellbinders; Tikor has an abundance of options for healing. This has caused the science of medicine to stagnant over the years in much of the world. However, Omicron has cornered the market on alternative medicine, thus making Prime the hub of another market. In places like Grimnest where there are no deities to perform healing chants or bless anyone's health. This leaves the duty of healing to small-time enchanters and apothecaries. While other people have offered healing in a bottle before, Musa and Omicron are the first ones to find it, market it and stand by it. With Grimnest as the perfect test candidate, much of their reputation comes from word of mouth.
The south side of Prime is different from the rest of the monster city, with it facing inland Grimnest, it serves a different purpose. Before the city was the glowing gem known as Prime, it was fishing village responsible for bringing in a portion of the food that central Grimnest relies on. Prime now serves that function with the southside being primarily markets from Grimnest. While many of the normal 'Nest staples can be bought, there is also always fish and vegetables from across Tikor to be had. While most outside Grimnest assume the citizens to be backwater, thanks to Prime, they actually enjoy the most varied diets on Tikor.
