Mythic Engine World of Darkness
The home of our characters, Southside is a neighborhood in south Pittsburgh that contains the Wayward Son among other things. Along its north edge runs the Monongahela River. Just west/northwest is the dense industrial South Shore and Station Square, immediately south and across the river from the Golden Triangle. Just southeast is the relatively poor neighborhood of Arlington and Arlington Heights.
Southside is divided into Southside Flats, where the characters live and work, and Southside Slopes just to the south, one of the hilliest neighborhoods in a major city in the country. Many refugees were relocated into the outskirts of this neighborhood and Arlington after 2003.
Southside Flats is most famous for the hip business district of Carson Street – East Carson Street is a major historic district with the longest Victorian-era business strip in the country.
