Welcome to our World
The Tagansko Line - commonly referred to as the Purple Line - runs through the entire Metro. While there are many stations on the line, the three most powerfully established - Tverskaya, Chekhovskaya, and Pushkinskaya - are under control of the facist Fourth Reich.
The Ring Line is primarily unified under the Hanzeatic League, save for the independent station of Oktyobraskaya. Compared to much of the metro, Ring Line citizens enjoy a much higher quality of living with abundant availability of goods and services - many unavailable in the rest of the metro. While citizens are well treated, outsiders are generally treated with wary caution; and visitors are commonly refused passage and turned away from its heavily guarded stations.
The Red Line is a large collection of stations within the Metro, formerly controlled by a Neo-Soviet faction commonly known as The Red Line. However, a few central stations remain independent, and Hanza maintains control of a small strip. Those stations formerly under rule of the Red Line have fallen into near anarchy after the deaths of former leaders.
Polis is located in the heart of the metro, and comprised of the stations Arbatskaya, Aleksandrov Sad, Biblioteka Linina and Borovitskaya. The collective is located directly below the remanants of the Moscow State Library. Considered to be the last bastion of true humanity, Polis is a station boasting wealth, power, and a near pre-war quality of life. Unlike any other stations, Polis posesses advanced machinery and building-like structures. Citizens enjoy high quality living, education, and access to steady livlihood.
The Botanical Gardens were formerly home to a breed of sentient humanoid mutants known as Dark Ones, prior to their anhillation in the year 2033. Little is known of the gardens as there are few willing to venture into the ruins. The landscape is greatly mutated, from a distance seemingly scorched black and populated by strange rusty-orange glowing growths, as well as immense black vine-like flora which sprawl over much of the area. Little remains of the gardens save for a large impact crater populated by sickly plantlife and the hollowed out remnants of the Dark Ones' towers.
Also known as the City of Shadows, Dead City was previously a thriving residential hub. After the nuclear attacks those formerly inhabiting the region were trapped in the form of Ghosts, forever reliving those last horrific moments. Known for strange temporal phenomenon, those brave enough to venture through this region are commonly confronted by both ghosts and vivid flash backs of those moments just prior to and during the bombing. Now inhabited only by watchmen and demons, travelers who linger too long are at risk of fits of madness.
Red Square was once thought to be the centermost square in Moscow, with all of the city's major highway connected streets originating here. However, after the nuclear strike it became difficult to access. Its most notable features are the Kremlin, Alexander Garden and St. Basil's cathedral - all of which are populated by deadly mutants.

Formerly a pre-war Scout camp, Solnechnyj is a sprawling river valley surrounded by high mountains. Much of the terrain is rocky and heavily forested, though because of the nearby dam much of the valley floor is marshy. Wildlife here is varied and plentiful, and the camp now serves as home to the Children of the Forest.
