Other cities?
« on: February 01, 2013, 09:34:18 AM »

I was just thinking, Scott never really told us what the other cities were like, we only know about Tally's city (Was it named?) and Diego... Were you ever curious what the other cities were like? How they fit into the whole scheme of things. We know the Tally's city was more controlling than most, but that was really it, wasn't it?

I guess I just want to know more about the world at the time, because there was this network that connected all the cities, but we never knew where their stances were and why they let things happen as they did...

What are your thoughts?

No, Tally's city was never named, but the Rusty Ruins are what used to be Seattle, so I like to call it either New Seattle or SeaTac (after the airport thats in Seattle)

But what about all the other cities? Did you never wonder why they let 'Columbia' get the way it did? How many other cities had a type of Special Circumstance group? Diego didn't have one, so was it the oddball out, or were most cities like that?

Way I see it, most of them had one, but Columbia was just unlucky to have Cable. Before she took command, it was like other cities. Then Cable took over and started grabbing more power for herself (hypocriticaly if you ask me)

I know, but I was half expecting you to start an argument about it.

That's true. Although I doubt people that haven't read it will look here...

Wait, Straif hasn't read through all of Uglies? That's what I meant...

And no, I don't know what I was expecting, just a bit more heat :P
