Why the original settlers chose the Obansk plains I can't really be sure... maybe it was the opportunity to hunt whales easier? Or maybe they just really enjoyed the sadistic sport of nude ice diving?The winter city of Tiumosk is located in the great Obansk plains. The icy winds here in the northern hemisphere pelt the thick, steel-clad, ten storey tall outer wall leaving large scars and pot-marks across it's surface. Sharp angled stalagmites of ice rise out from the snow covered soil and creep ever further upwards with each blizzard. Atop the mighty metal ring, barbed wire and iron spikes line the underside of an overhang that braces battlements from which remote-controlled turrets are mounted in sequence around the entire perimeter. Additionally open sections are left for direct-fire armaments and personnel with hand-held weaponry to fire from. At a select few key placements, thick towers serve as look-out stations, network relays and communication hubs. Plumes of steam rise from industrial pipes outside the city in addition to the huge chimney stacks and vents inside the wall. Snow never touches the surface within Tiumosk for the heat of industry and the city's dense population warm the air whilst tall brutalist tower blocks prevent any winds that might have crept over the outer wall. Due to Tiumosk's proximity to the northern pole, it's inhabitants are well accustomed to Demon activity. They unfortunately lost a sector of the city to Krathan, Nadir of Wrath's Underlings in recent times and have had to construct a new barrier from the now abandoned residential towers, blocking the roads with scaffolded plates of metal, backed by mountains of rubble and dirt. In addition to barricading the tower windows and filling the lower levels with reinforced concrete.
